When should you Purchase Single Premium Policy?

In order to buy a single premium policy, you need to pay a huge amount at one go. So, if you can afford to pay such a huge premium amount, you can go for this plan.  With a single premium life insurance policy, you can invest your money in a right way and can secure the future of your family. Moreover, with this plan, you can target for higher life coverage as compared to regular premium paying insurance plan. 

Tax Benefit under LIC’s Single Premium Paying Plan

A single premium paying life insurance policy helps you to save on taxes. Up to Rs1.5 Lakhs of your invested money is exempt from tax deduction under section 80C of the Income Tax Act. Moreover, the sum assured is also tax free. However, you should keep in mind that, in this policy, you can avail tax benefits only once as you are investing for a single time only.

No More Policy Lapses

Since you pay for the policy once and for all, you don’t have to worry again about the policy getting lapsed in case you forget to pay the premium. After paying the premium, the plan is valid till the entire tenure of the policy and renders the sum assured after the policy tenure comes to an end. You can create an asset for yourself when you make payment of a single premium on a policy. The insured can avail the loan facility anytime they want, during the policy tenure.

One of the major advantages of purchasing a single premium paying term is that you do not have to invest ever year, the cash value of your one-time investment gets accumulated over the years and turns into a huge amount at the time of maturity.
