December 12, 2018
In the fast paced lifestyle of today, a person's financial strength counts for everything.

One important activity for maintaining future financial strength is taking out a specific insurance plans that offers guaranteed benefits and is best suited for your needs. One such plan is the guaranteed income plan that is best suited for low risk appetites. A guaranteed income plan is a general traditional plan that provides general insurance coverage together with guaranteed earnings in the forms of periodic payouts. The earnings are guaranteed and the frequency of payouts can be chosen by the policy subscriber (monthly, quarterly or annual).

Any person in the age group of 18-60 years can purchase a guaranteed income plan and can avail of the various benefits that come with it. A guaranteed income plan also offers maturity proceeds (upon completion of the policy term) together with the payout benefit to the nominee (s) in the event of the policy subscriber's unfortunate demise. Moreover, a guaranteed income plan entitles the policy subscriber to bonuses when the policy term matures. The terms are variable and generally come in the category of 10 years to 30 years.

The term of the payout during which regular earnings (depending upon a mentioned percentage of the main corpus i.e. the sum assured) also varies and can be chosen as per your specific requirements. A guaranteed income plan also offers tax exemption under the sections 80C and 10D of the Income Tax Act, 1961 and these exemptions are available for the payable premiums and also the maturity proceeds, after completion of the policy term.

A guaranteed income plan can be therefore, thought of as a non-linked traditional plan that offers benefits that are safer, not linked to market performances and guaranteed. It is an ideal insurance instrument for persons who are looking forward to build and retain a significant corpus and also for those who want to receive the regular income, in the chosen frequency over a period of time.
