Advantages of ULIP Plans

    The various fees and charges associated with the above-mentioned ULIPs are affordable. This ensures only a small amount of your premium is not invested and used towards fees like premium allocation, fund management charges, policy administration, and mortality charges. It is important for you to compare ULIP plans and understand the associated expenses before making a decision.
  • Flexibility
    The ULIP plan comparison depicted above clearly shows that each of these insurance plans offers flexibility to buyers. These plans offer different policy terms, premium paying options, and premium payment frequencies. All of these features can be customized while availing the plan, to ensure it best suits all your personal needs.
  • Tax Benefits
    Investments made under these ULIPs enjoy tax exemptions as outlined in Section 80 C and Section 10 (10D) of the Income Tax Act.
  • No Medicals and Simple
    Individuals who meet the criteria outlined by the insurance company can avail either of these plans without undergoing any medical tests. The entire procedure to avail these policies is simple and efficient. Buyers can also choose to buy the ULIPs online, through the website, to enjoy additional benefits offered on this platform.

ULIPs are a kind of life insurance product that offer risk cover along with investment options to policyholders. Investments can be made in different instruments, such as bonds, equities, or mutual funds. Because the investments are related to market fluctuations, it is important for you to assess your risk appetite and undertake a detailed ULIP comparison before you make an investment decision.
