The above-mentioned term insurance premium has been taken for an individual who is 35 years old, smokes and earns up to Rs 15 lakh annually.

Why a Term Plan?

A term insurance plan will safeguard your family members in case you are not around. Moreover, a term plan remains a popular choice amongst all the life insurance products available in the market. 

Under a term plan, you need to pay the premium for a pre-defined term against the large cover sum that is known as the sum assured. In case the policyholder passes away within the policy term, the nominee will receive the complete cover amount. This amount can be used to take care of the everyday expenses and achieve various important life objectives such as the education of the child, marriage, and so forth.

In the last couple of months, people aged between 20 years and 45 years seriously got affected by this virus leading to hospitalization. Therefore, in such uncertain times, if you are the breadwinner of the family ensure that you have a term insurance plan of 30 lakh or more. Make sure that the term plan should have a sufficient cover amount to safeguard the financial future of the family. Go with a term insurance plan that suits the pocket and fulfils your requirements.

Buy the Term Plan Online in 2021

With the onset of COVID-19 last year, people are preferably taking the digital route more. Similarly, you can easily buy a term insurance plan online. Moreover, it is ideal to take the digital route as it ensures social distancing practice as well. 

You can easily buy a term plan by simply staying indoors and need not visit any of the insurance company. In case you do not know, buying a term insurance plan online will also help to save money and get better deals.

You can also buy the term insurance plan via a telemedical process wherein a doctor will get in touch. The doctor will ask health-related questions many a time and you need not undergo any physical medical tests. You simply need to provide a copy of the KYC and income documents to the insurance company and make the online payment. Once the payment is done and the medical process or telemedical is completed a proposal is put forward. This will be done via the underwriting process at the insurance company end. If everything is in line, the term insurance plan will be issued. 

The term insurance premium is cost-effective compared to any other life insurance product. Let us just assume that if you buy term insurance of 30 lakh the monthly premium would be somewhere around Rs 1200 or so. Such a premium amount will not put a burden on the shoulder of the policyholder.

Most importantly, regardless of the term plan you buy, the premium would vary from one insurer to the other. Moreover, the term insurance premium is determined by various factors such as smoking, gender, age, health conditions, and so forth. 

Wrapping it Up 

Life is uncertain and unpredictable. Nobody knows what would happen in the coming times; however, it is better to be safe than sorry. A term insurance plan will be ideal protection that you could give the family members against any financial risk that might arise not only with this pandemic but at any point in time.
