India has a huge population of 1.252 billion people. All these people belong to different socio-economic sectors. They have differences in culture, mentality, beliefs and behaviour. Their problems are different. They have different needs and aspirations. But all their differences merge at one point. All of them want a financially secure life for themselves and their family.
Since life itself is full of uncertainties, the term “financially secure life” sounds elusive. Financial security comes from proper financial planning at the right time of your life. When it comes to financial planning, the first thought that comes to our mind is that of a life insurance plan.
There are many misconceptions surrounding the idea of Life insurance. Some people think that a life insurance policy is waste of money. Some people are of the opinion that life insurance plans are not for the middle class. Those who have enough money to waste are the ones who spend on insurance policies out of impulse. Some even think that common people are fooled by insurance companies who tactfully coerce them into buying their products. But now it is time to come out of darkness and understand the importance of life insurance plans in our lives.
Firstly life insurance is not wastage of money. You may think that, what is the use of a term insurance plan if you do not die before the policy matures. But what you have never realized is the amount of sum assured is going to be huge in case of your unfortunate death during the policy tenure. Your family receives a huge sum of money in return for the nominal amount that you pay as premiums. It also dismisses the second misconception and proves that Life insurance plans are indeed for the middle class. Thirdly there is no way that an insurance company can fool you into buying its products. All the companies provide sufficient information about their products on their websites. You must go and check for yourself all the features and benefits as well as the terms and conditions of the products before you decide to buy one.
