To Strike a Balance Between Investment and Insurance

Apart from covering the family from any contingency, life insurance is a perfect tool to strengthen your financial portfolio. Plans like money back, endowment, whole life policy, etc; offer guaranteed returns after the stipulated time-frame which can be used to meet divergent needs.  

To Facilitate Future Planning

We all have some goals in life for which we save. For a young married couple, it could be buying a house. Once they decide to start a family, the goal changes to planning for child’s education or marriage. As one grows older, retirement planning will take precedence. Life insurance offers benefits to meet needs of different life stages. 

To Meet Emergency Situations

Marriage comes with financial interdependence. By naming a spouse as a beneficiary in the policy, you make sure that your partner will have the financial means to carry on after your death. The policy replaces the income of a bread earner by paying a guaranteed benefit to the surviving partner, which can be used to pay off debts and tackle other expenses.

To Build an Inheritance for Heirs

If you have no assets to pass to your heirs, you can build an inheritance by buying life insurance and naming them as a beneficiary.
