Are You Underinsured? How to Choose the Perfect Plan for Your Loved Ones HDFC Life

October 16, 2018
In this world of financial inclusion, it is very important that financial protection is always assured. With the rising prices of essential as well as luxury items and the rising cost of living, protection of your savings and capital gains is very crucial. While investing your capital for future gains is a much needed priority, equally important is the fact that the assured capital gains must be insured. Insurance acts as a safeguard against risks and protects the finances even in your absence. This means a dignified and protected future for your loved ones. However, given the importance of being insured, most people continue to remain underinsured without even realizing it. Even having bought an insurance-cum-investment plan, chances are that the protection element is not big enough to meet the basic objective of buying life insurance. Traditional plans fall between the two factors of good returns and adequate life cover—they offer poor returns and very low life cover.

This is where the importance of financial literacy comes into play. Being financially literate means knowing exactly what is required and having a proper plan of investment and protection. Though most people may believe that a singular insurance policy can make them the complete benefits, this is not so. Insurance is the sure shot method of financial security but only when the cover that it offers is adequate for you. Getting a cover of a certain amount without matching it up with factors like the annual income, expenditure on essentials, family’s contingency budget and the financial strength to meet specific goals, makes a big dent in the insurance credibility. An adequate life cover ensures that the family goals are not hampered due to the breadwinner’s death. The purpose of insurance is to ensure that goals are met timely, without any delay and the family does not have to bear financial loss in the event of breadwinner’s unfortunate demise.

Choosing the perfect plan for your loved ones is a matter of utmost importance and even urgency. It is very important that your choice is need-based and not driven by what your friends or colleagues are buying. After all, your specific needs and monetary goals or requirements may be completely different form theirs. Therefore, you must always chalk out your specific needs and plan accordingly.

Choosing a best term insurance plan is a matter of research and comparison. Therefore, choosing online is always better than choosing offline. Besides the fact that online search and comparison save your time and effort, the sources of credibility and exact information are always secure and accessible. Moreover, offline plans are far expensive and involve hassles that you can very well avoid while opting for online mode.

Another important thing to remember is to be clear about the term of insurance and the premium amounts and their frequency. This allows you to identify and opt for better options with higher financial flexibility. This is also beneficial considering that this also makes you regular and financially more disciplined.

HDFC Life offers numerous term insurance plans in India that aim at securing your loved ones financially at all times.
