Guys! lots of people know that how important is to having a insurance for yourself or for your family but i don’t know why they don’t want to use this opportunity to save their own or family’s life and health. Hope after reading this some of you could change their minds.

Insurance is not all about saving money, it is way more than that like many insurance company provide insurance against any thing and pay for you if you hospitalized or having any tretment expenses.

How can Insurance helpful:

  • Protection against home damage, There are many insurance policy which covers damage happened at your own home like protection against theft, protection against fire damage, protection against water damage etc. If your policy covers this then you are able to repair or replace any damage and also suppose if you have some guest in our home and some any guest gets injured at your home then insurance company will take care of all expenses related to that issue.
  • It helps you ti run any of your small business,  If you are a owner of a small business then whith the help of your insurance you can manages the future risk. Insurace related to business will covers you, your business, employee and gives you a chance to provide your company a retirement plan that will help you and your employees.
  • Retirement should be secured, there are lot of Insurance plans to apply for- one of them is for your retirement. The premium under this policy collected by insurance company is like a kid investing their money for a toy that helps him to feel the joy of life. When the policy period is over then the collected money would be give to you as like a pension.
  • The feel of relax, i remember once i buy a motorbike from my own first salary and i have always worried about the damages that maybe happened by me or others. Then i buy a insurance online for my bike and after 8 months i met with an accident on highway, i’m totally fine and actaully was not injured much but my was almost finish. Then i try to claim my damage from the insurance company and as buy the insurance which covers all the expenses then after some documentation and investigation, insurance company paid the all expenses for my bike damage. That’s why i say again and again – insurance is mandatory nowadays.
  • Develops saving habits, now insurance will work as pgy bank for me like i deposit premium for sveral years and then company get back my money afte the period of my policy is ended. Many of us don’t have saving habits which is not good, having a saving habit can save you from any emergency.

If there’s an emergency, would insurance company provide a large settlement?

Insurance company collects premium and some fixed amount to hold your policy, it has been totally depend on the type of insurance policy you have. Some insurance policy know as lumpsum because in this type of policy plan a policyholder pays a fixed amount for a certain period of time and after when the insurance period over they policyholder gets all benefits as promised by the company. You can get claim before the cover period time, many people broke their insurance plan in between the time period due to any special reason but remember this action will put you in the situation where you have to take the risk f loss of profit.

Life insurance | How many types?

Now as i mentioned above and also in many of my articles that what is insurance but some of you again asking about there types, here it is…

  • Term Life Insurance Plans – On low premiums get very big profit
  • Unit linked insurance plan (ULIP) – a chance to invest
  • Endowment Plan – Save your money for future with the help of life insurance plan
  • Money-Back – Periodic get return with the insurance plan cover amount

Term Life Insurance-

Now this time is all about pandemic, fear of death and thinking about what happens with my family is the dangerous question for every one. We all know that life and death is truth of nature. We all take tension aout our family member or love once and do whatever it take to make them live in better world. The term life insurance will help you to solve this problem, you have to pay for a specefic period of time which totally depends on your policy plan but the time period very between about 10 to 30 years. If somehow you die in between your plan specefied time period then a cash benefit is provided by the insurance company to the person who’s identity is verified as nominee in policy documents.

The most important step that you have to choose when you are applying for term life insurance. Many of you asked me that what is the right cover period under term insurance plan, so the answer of this question is simple – you just have to ask yourself that why are you applying for his term insurance plan and i know the answer “Family & Love once“. Yes we apply for this term insurance plan, so that when we are not present in the hard situation with our family then in this type of situation thsi insurance plan will help your family.

The premiums totally depends on the plan and the term period, is you applied for a long term insurance plan or Short term insurance plan? Premiums maybe for long term and short term will be almost same because we don’t have superpowers to predict the future and don’t have powers to stop future accidental situations and that’s why insurance company want premium same as for long and short term both. I have a recommendation – when you are young and have employement then you should apply for a term isnurance plan.

Unit Linked Insurance Plan (ULIP)-

In the early 1971 the Unit Linked Insurance Plan were announced in india, it is totally managed under the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI).
