How to Secure Your Family With Term Insurance?



Mr Sharma has a family of 5 members, including 3 children. He works in an MNC and the family lives happily. One day he lost his close friend, Mr Nishant, to a fatal accident. The wife of Nishant is now struggling to look after her 2 children on the untimely death of her husband.

Mr Sharma closely observes the financial difficulties his friend’s family is facing. Unfortunately, Mr Nishant didn’t avail a term insurance plan when he was alive. If Mr Nishant had availed a term insurance plan, his family would be free from financial worries, today.

Mr Sharma does not want to repeat the mistake his friend committed and intends to keep his dependents financially secure in his absence by purchasing term insurance. Is it not a good idea? Yes, it is. What about you?

Do Not Let Your Dependents Suffer Financially

Term Insurance Plans to Achieve Financial Goals

  • Increasing term insurance plans: In case of increasing term insurance plans, the sum assured keeps increasing at a predefined rate each year. These policies are helpful to protect against steadily rising inflation and ensure the policyholder is adequately insured.
  • Term Plans with Return of Premium: These term insurance plans offer maturity benefits. All the premiums shall be paid to the policyholder if he or she survives the policy term.
  • Level term insurance plans: Level term insurance plans are a simple form of term insurance. The sum assured remains the same across the period of the policy. The insurer pays the death benefits to the nominee on the demise of the policyholder. Such term insurance policies may be beneficial for people who seek substantial amounts to keep family financially secure on an untimely demise.
  • Decreasing term insurance policies: Decreasing term insurance plans are renewable, but the coverage falls across the policy tenure at a predefined rate. The premium remains unchanged across the plan. Such policies are useful to repay home loans, education loans and so on.

What Should Be My Life Cover?

The quantum of cover you need can be computed considering your current income, liabilities, expenses and investments. Use the human life value calculator to compute the sum assured for your family. According to experts, if you are in the age group of 18-35 years, the life cover should be 15-20 times yearly income. If you are in the age group of 36-45 years, it should be 20 times annual income; if you are in the age group of 46-50 years, the cover must be 15 times of the yearly income; and if you are in the age group of 51-60 years, the life cover has to be at least 10 times of the annual income.
