How much does a subscriber need to pay for Bima Life Insurance?

How does a registered subscriber earn insurance cover and how much insurance cover is being provided?

A registered subscriber earns and accumulates insurance cover by using airtime. Since the insurance cover provided is cumulative, the total amount of insurance cover provided depends on how much the subscriber has accumulated so far. The maximum amount of insurance cover that can be accumulated is BDT 50,000. The following table gives the insurance cover provided for different slabs of airtime used

Value of airtime used in previous calendarmonth Incremental insurance cover earned for current calendar month
BDT  150 – 249 Policy stays active, but no additional insurance earned
BDT  250 – 349 BDT  4,000
BDT  350 – 499 BDT  6,000
BDT  500 and above BDT  8,000
Less than BDT 150 No insurance coverage. The subscriber starts from zero.

For example, if the subscriber registers for Bima Life Insurance and uses BDT 250 of airtime in Month 1, the subscriber earns BDT 4,000 worth of insurance cover in Month 2; the subscriber’s total insurance cover in Month 2 will be BDT 4,000.
In Month 2, if the subscriber uses BDT 350 of airtime, the subscriber earns BDT 6,000 worth of insurance cover in Month 3; the subscriber’s total insurance cover in Month 3 will be BDT 10,000.
In Month 3, if the subscriber uses only BDT 150 of airtime, the subscriber will not earn any incremental insurance cover in Month 4, so the subscriber’s total insurance cover in Month 4 will remain at BDT 10,000. As the maximum amount of insurance cover that can be accumulated is BDT 50,000, the subscriber’s total insurance cover will remain at BDT 50,000 after he/she has earned to that level, as long as the previous month’s airtime usage remains at least BDT 150
