Money is important to us at every stage of life. It is idyllic to say 'Money cannot buy happiness'. But the fact of life is that money is needed to pay for necessities, contain one's hunger and also build a future on. Money may not buy happiness, but it can certainly provide the means to happiness.
This is especially true in times of financial instability brought on by loss of income. With no inflow of funds, the family cannot make its ends meet nor pay for such expense heads as children's education or urgent medical treatment. Ask yourself this: what happens if you are absent from your loved ones' lives in the future? Will your current level of savings and investments help them pay for their needs? Or do you need to do something extra to safeguard their future?
If you think you need to do something extra, let us recommend an excellent course of action: take a term plan. It will keep your family safe and protected even in your absence.
Why term insurance?
It provides a large corpus of money on the unfortunate demise of the policy holder. The biggest advantage of term insurance plans is one pays very affordable premiums on them, while the sum assured is a big amount of money. The policy is valid for the tenure of the plan, and its benefits are offered only on the unfortunate demise of the policy holder. If the policy holder survives the plan term, the policy is terminated at that point and there is no maturity benefits offered.
It is simple enough to buy an online term plan, with most insurers not insisting on a medical test before deeming the policy active. One can calculate the premium payable by using a term insurance premium calculator. The term plan calculator computes the premium to be paid vis-à-vis the desired sum assured and the tenure (term) of the plan.
