Choose Life Insurance to Secure Your Zindagi in 21 Ways
Can you measure your life’s value on a weighing scale? Or with a stopwatch? You can’t, right? That’s why, the concept of life insurance offers to gauge the worth of your own life and put a monetary airbag before it.
In other words, life insurance helps you calculate your Human Life Value (HLV). As per definition, HLV is the present value of all future income that you could expect to earn for your family until retirement. It is a number that tells you the present value of future income expenses, liabilities and investments. It is usually calculated to understand how much money you would require to secure the lives of your dependents with a term life insurance.
No two individuals are alike. Hence, we present life insurance products of customizable features to help you cater to your unique financial needs.
