Picking the right life insurance plan is key to protecting not just your financial interests but also your family’s future in your absence.
If you really think about it, everything about life is uncertain. You cannot predict if you will find the love of your life. You do not know if you will ever have a high-paying job.

Better yet, when was the last time you were able to avert an unfortunate event in the nick of time?

Up to a decade ago, most people believed in saving up to buy a house of their dreams. After most of the money for the house was collected, the shortfall would be met by borrowing from relatives or taking a housing loan from a bank. Today, however, the situation has reversed completely.
Real estate is extremely expensive in India today, and as gross incomes rise, more and more people are choosing to take home loans to fund the major part of the house purchase. Younger age groups, too, are opting to buy homes in their 20s so as to create a valuable asset for the future. Responding to the need for housing in the country’s metros, Tier II and III cities and upcoming towns, a multitude of Indian banks and financial institutions are offering home loans to suit customers’ needs.

It goes without saying that investing in life insurance is a big deal. Life insurance is defined as a bipartite contract between an insurance policy holder (an individual) and an insurer (an organization), where the insurer promises to pay a pre established beneficiary (often close family members like wife, children, husband, or parents) a pre decided sum of money (the benefit) in exchange for a periodically paid premium, upon the death of the insured policy holder. The policy holder typically pays a periodic premium (say monthly or yearly) or a one time lump some payment towards the insurance policy. Since it is a considerable investment, at the end of the day, no one wants to purchase the wrong insurance or pay for a plan that’s far beyond their needs.
Keeping that in mind, here are 20 tips to help you get the best insurance for your needs. Continue reading “20 Things You Need to Know and Consider Before Buying Life Insurance”
