1. A financial product to fall back on:
You seek financial advice on which is the best financial avenue to invest your hard-earned money. People may suggest you invest in mutual funds, whole life insurance policies, pension plans, and so on. These investment options help you save for retirement and you should go ahead and invest in one or two of them.
But, having a term life insurance policy is a must. It helps you get protection for a much bigger risk. You may have availed a home loan or planned to send your children abroad for higher studies, plus you have to ensure your family’s financial security in your absence. Achieving all this is possible if you have some kind of financial arrangement like term life insurance. Term insurance plans cost much lesser than whole life insurance products. Let’s take the worst case scenario:
Say you are 30. For a sum assured of Rs 1 Crore, a smoker has to pay an annual premium of around Rs 15,000. Monthly premium will be Rs 1,250. If you are earning around Rs 5 Lakhs a year, your premium will be just 3% of your annual income. Is this too much?
