What are Term Insurance Plans?

All of us need a lump sum corpus to provide for the family if we face an untimely death. Term insurance plans become relevant in these situations where income protection is the need of the individual. Term plans promise to pay the nominee a fixed benefit as chosen at inception if the policyholder pre-deceases the policy term. The premium for the plan is kept low because of the provision of only death benefit.

Max Life Term Plans

How Much Term Life Insurance Coverage Do You Need?

Life insurance needs differ from person to person and so it won't be possible to make a generalised assumption about the amount of term insurance an individual needs. However if you are wondering as to exactly how much term coverage you would need, there are a few simple ways in analysing this.

How to Calculate the Amount of Term Life Insurance Coverage I Need?

To do this, you have to keep a few things in mind. They are:

  1. How many people are dependent on you?
  2. What is the other source of income, if any, of your family?
  3. For how long will this source be available to the family?
  4. How much money to you owe to lenders?
  5. What are the future financial goals for your children?

Once you know this, you will know exactly how much money your family will need if you were to die suddenly. Let us understand this with an example.

Sachin has a wife and twin girls, aged 10. His wife is working as well, but she plans to work for another 5 years only. Sachin has a car loan and needs to pay EMIs every month for another 15 years. He plans to send one of his daughters to Milan to study fashion the other one to Singapore for her MBA. He calculates that the combined cost of their education would be about Rs.30 lakhs. So he buys a term plan for Rs. 60 lakhs, which would be enough to pay for his kids’ education, run the household and pay off the loan. So he buys a term plan for that amount.

How to Calculate the Term for Which the Plan Needs to be Bought?

Apart from the amount, it is also important to understand that a term plan is purchased for a particular term and should not go on forever! In Sachin’s case, he bought the term plan for 20 years as he calculated that 20 years was enough time for his daughters to get financially independent and support themselves and their mother. By then, the loans would also be paid off. So like Sachin, keep the financial goals in mind and buy coverage for as long as you need, not more not less.

Should I Consult My Agent About the Amount of Term Coverage Needed?

If you cannot calculate how much term life insurance coverage you need on your own, it is always a good idea to consult your insurance agent or your financial advisor. However, when consulting your agent, make sure you understand your needs and do not allow the agent to convince you to buy more insurance than you need.

Reasons to Opt for an Online Term Insurance Plan

A term plan is created in such a way that it helps protect one’s family, financially, when one is no longer around to personally take care of them. It pays one’s loved ones, adequate money as per the sum assured amount of the term plan, to take care of the basic financial needs of the family. A term plan prevents the immediate family from facing a full blown financial crisis right after the loss of a loved one.

With the wide spread use of the internet, term plans are also being offered online. It is quite easy to buy a plan online.
