A Life Insurance policy provides you with a financial cover and sense of assurance to you and your family during the time of crisis. Each life insurance type has its own specific type of cover along with other benefits.
These life insurance plans cover your basic financial needs and assets. We will look into each of the types of life insurance policies in detail.
Term Insurance is one of the most basic types of life insurance policies. In term plan, the policyholder gets a life cover for a specified period of time and they pay the premium for the same. In case of premature death, the beneficiary receives the sum assured to the policyholder. On the other hand, if the policyholder survives the term insurance period, there are no savings or profits gained from the policy. Online term insurance plans give pure risk coverage and that is the reason the premiums for such plans are relatively low.

The premium is paid at regular intervals and there is a final payout to the family upon the death of the insured. Naturally, as the insurance cover is for the lifetime, the premium amount is also higher for such whole life plans.
