Protection Plan help you shield your family from uncertainties in life due to financial losses in terms of loss of income that may dawn upon them in case of your untimely demise or critical illness. Securing the future of one's family is one of the most important goals of life.
Protection Plans go a long way in ensuring your family's financial independence in the event of your unfortunate demise or critical illness. They are all the more important if you are the chief wage earner in your family. No matter how much you have saved or invested over the years, sudden eventualities, such as death or critical illness, always tend to affect your family financially apart from the huge emotional loss.
For instance, consider the example of Amit who is a healthy 25 year old guy with an income of Rs. 1,00,000/- per annum. Let's assume his income increases at a rate of 10% per annum, while the inflation rate is around 4%; this is how his income chart will look like, until he retires at the age of 60 years. At 50 years of age, Amit's real income would have been around Rs. 10,00,000/- per annum. However, in case of Amit's unfortunate demise at an early age of 42 years, the loss of income to his family would be nearly Rs. 5,00,000/- per annum.
However, with a Protection Plan, a mere sum of Rs. 2,280/- annually (exclusive of service tax & educational cess) can help Amit provide a financial cushion of up to Rs. 10,00,000/- for his family over a period of 25 years.
