    Buy early, take a long life cover

    Ever wondered why do you buy a term insurance plan? Is it to oblige the neighbour next door of your friend's brother-in-law's wife who is an insurance agent? Is it for tax-savings? Is it for the purposes of pure investment? If you've answered yes to the above questions, you are probably doing the right thing for the wrong reasons. The primary aim of a term insurance plan is to secure the future of your family. You should be buying a term insurance plan so that your family can withstand the financial burden of life after you're no longer with them.

    Why term plan then?

    Because a term plan gives you pure protection. As the name suggests, there is a term attached to the policy, during which, if you were to meet an untimely demise, your beneficiary would receive the complete Sum Assured. With this money, they can meet the expenses of life like home loans, your children's fees, medical expenses etc. It is the cheapest plan in the market that can give your family the maximum security.

    When to buy it?

    The earlier, the better. The younger you are when you buy it, the lower are your premiums. As you get older, the probability of risk to your life due to lifestyle diseases like diabetes etc increases, pushing your life insurance premium higher. Buy a term plan when you are young. Even if you do not have a family, buy it now and then change the beneficiaries later. This way, you can lock-in a cheaper rate for security of your family.

    An example

    A term plan for Rs.1 crore will come at an annual premium of Rs.5693/- p.a.* This plan would cover you up to the age of 55 years. The same policy would cost Rs. 14,788/- if you buy it at age 45*. So, it makes more sense to buy a policy when you are younger

    For how long should you be covered?

    The longer the better. Edelweiss Tokio Life – MyLife  gives you the option to be covered till 80 years of age. Secure yourself for the maximum age so that your family can be prepared for any eventuality during any phase of their lives.
