Savings Growth: In your early years of working, some life insurance plans can be a useful way to save and invest your money. For instance, Unit Linked Insurance Plans (ULIPs) allow you to invest in equity and debt markets. Under current tax laws (which are subject to future amendment), you also get tax deductions for investment in life insurance policies and on the maturity amounts of such policies. Family Support: If you have a spouse and kids, the need to build a safety net for them becomes important. You would want to protect them from financial hardship in case of your untimely demise.
Debt: We often take large loans in our working life, especially when it comes to buying a house. An untimely death while the loan is still due can have grave economic consequences for our families. In such a scenario, life insurance money can be used to pay off the loan.
Illness Protection: As we grow older and with the changing lifestyle, life insurance policies which cover critical illnesses become important. Some life insurance policies offer you features that cover you from severe ailments like heart attacks and cancer. Buying these types of policies can protect you from life threatening illnesses.
