As a result, people were forced to realign their financial priorities. One of the significant shifts observed is that more and more people are buying term insurance to protect their families.
While term insurances have always been considered an excellent option to secure the future of loved ones, it ironically took a global pandemic to catapult their importance. If you are still wondering why it is necessary to purchase a term policy, read on to know more about the importance of term insurance during and post Covid-19.
In India, the economy shrank sharply because of the pandemic and the subsequent lockdown measures taken by the government. This has directly resulted in job losses and unemployment.

The very fact that you no longer have to worry about their future brings a great deal of happiness, emotional satisfaction and peace of mind. It keeps anxiety at bay. In these times of uncertainty, this is no lesser achievement of sorts.
The covid-19 has reconfirmed for a lot of us that facts are stranger than fiction. We never know what lies ahead of us. Hopefully, a time may come when humanity will survive and thrive without any illness or epidemic. But until then, term insurance can be our best bet to prepare ourselves and our families for the uncertainties we may face.
