Why Is Insurance Important For A Financially Secure Future?

Life is unpredictable, and it is a truth that is known to all. All we can do is plan in advance for the years ahead of us. Insurance is an integral part of this future planning that helps us in ensuring that we have a financial backup for any situation that is uncalled for. An emergency situation can indeed cause a dent in your financial status, no matter how well you are earning. But if you have insurance like term life insurance, health insurance, and other important and mandatory insurances in your financial basket, you can rely on insurance to pay for the damage that you may go through.

Types of Insurance Policies To Invest In India

If you are among those who are planning to buy an insurance policy for themselves or their family, then the first thing that you must know is that there are certain insurances that are mandatory, like - auto insurance, which is mandatory by law. But, some insurances, like health insurance, are a must-have to ensure that our financial security is intact and there is a backup to meet any financial emergency. Let’s have a brief look at the types of insurance you must invest in for a secure future:

Term Life Insurance Policies

This is a type of life insurance policy that only offers death benefits and does not provide any maturity benefits. They are designed to offer you maximum to very high life cover at a basic premium cost. The main objective of this type of insurance policy is to provide financial protection to the nominee in case of the policyholder’s demise.

Whole Life Insurance Plans

It is a traditional life insurance plan that covers the life of the policyholder for as long as 100 years of age. This policy offers both death and maturity benefits to the nominee and policyholder, respectively.

Endowment Plans

These insurance plans are dual benefit plans that offer benefits both before and after the death of the policyholder. An endowment plan is a combination of both savings plans and insurance cover. It offers maturity and death benefits to the policyholder and nominee, respectively. In case of unfortunate demise of the policyholder, the sum assured will be paid to the nominee or the family, while in case the policyholder outlives the policy term, they will receive the sum assured along with all other bonuses.

Unit Linked Insurance Plans (ULIPs)

ULIPs are one of the most popular insurance policies that many people are opting for. Being a modern market-linked insurance policy, it offers the benefits of investing in the market funds while taking the protection of life insurance. Additionally, it also serves as a tax-saving financial avenue. In this insurance cum investment plan, your premium is split into two segments based on the policy requirements. One part goes towards the insurance premium, while the other part is allocated to the market fund(s) of your choice. ULIPs are considered a great long-term investment tool.


In general, the list of the types of insurance policies to invest in is pretty long, and you cannot opt for all the insurances. Thus, you must first prioritize your financial as well as personal goals and then look through the market for the best types of insurance you must invest in for secure future. This will help you and your family achieve better financial stability and security in emergency scenarios.
