Unit-linked plans - taking an informed decision
22th July 2019
Today, insurers have a wide array of products for the investors that suits their age, goals, risk capacity and other things. It is necessary to invest in a scheme that goes in sync with your targets, short-term or long-term. Targets can be buying a home, car, education marriage, traveling across the planet or any other.
Life insurance caters to many benefits at the same time, be it retirement, deduction under Income Tax Act or providing financial support at the time of any medical emergency. A lump sum amount is given to the investor at the time of maturity or death, in lieu to the monthly premiums paid.
Many products are there to invest, but Unit Linked Insurance Plan (ULIP) is an attractive option. It is a long-term investment option, which is pocket friendly and comes handy at the time of retirement of the investor. This tool helps to invest in the share market, and if all goes well then investor might end up reaping good profits.
ULIP plans offer dual benefit of term insurance and investment. Not only do you get term coverage which can help in financial safeguarding at the time of death, but you also get an opportunity for wealth creation, to meet your targets in the future.
