If you invest in ULIPs and Term Insurance, you will be eligible for dual tax benefits while earning above-market returns and having a guaranteed sum assured exclusively for your family’s well-being.

  • Unit Linked Insurance Plan (ULIP)

Unit-linked insurance policy combines life insurance and investment products offered by insurance companies. A tiny percentage of the payment goes for insurance, with the rest going into one of many fund alternatives debt, money market, or equity-oriented funds that you choose. The fund’s worth will be used to pay maturity awards. If the insured dies within the policy term, the beneficiary will receive the sum covered or the fund value, whichever one is larger.

  • Term Insurance

Term insurance, which only provides full life insurance, is possibly the most basic and straightforward. Term insurance offers the best protection for the least amount of money. In this case, coverage is provided for a set period. If the insured individual dies within the period, the beneficiary will be paid the sum assured amount but at the end of the policy’s term.
