Is ULIP a Best Investment Plan?
Most traditional plans comply with debt investment standards and do not offer any equity-based options. This makes them better suited for low-risk appetite investors. However, ULIPs offer debt and equity investment options, thereby serving your risk appetite as well as giving you the option to "play it safe". In fact, ULIPs come with a range of debt, equity and balanced option - plans and you can switch as per the current ongoing trend in the market. This not only secures your investments but also allows you to freely switch your monetary investment channels between various funds so that there can be an assurance of higher returns.
Moreover, the option of changing your life cover is an added benefit of investing in ULIPs. A ULIP allows you to choose the sum assured at the time of policy purchase and follows it up with giving you the option of changing the sum assured as per your financial goals or as per your specific requirements. Besides, investing in ULIPs means a disciplined and regular saving habit and this is a must for planning things well in advance and for meeting required financial goals. With a lock-in period of 5 years, ULIPs come with the factor of goal-based savings. Also, ULIPs allow the partial withdrawal from the invested corpus by giving you the option of withdrawing a portion of your investments in case of emergency situations. But unlike many other investment options, ULIPs allow you to withdraw a portion of the investment after a specified lock-in period. Make sure you find out how much you are allowed to withdraw because the exact amount you can withdraw varies between different companies. The best part is these withdrawals are completely tax-free.
As per the latest government guidelines, LTCG (Long Term Capital Gains) taxation is not applicable on returns from a ULIP. This adds to the existing guidelines wherein you can avail tax deductions up to Rs 1.5 Lakh on premiums paid towards investments in ULIP. Moreover, all the returns on your ULIP investments are completely tax - free.
