Unit Linked Insurance Plans (ULIPs) For All

 

Your choice of a ULIP depends upon the kinds of goals you have in mind. ULIPs are one of the most versatile investment products to invest in, with the dual advantage of market-linked returns and tax benefits3

ULIP for Wealth Creation

ULIPs are a great way to accumulate wealth for that big plan you have – marriage, new car, or your own house. ULIPs by Edelweiss Tokio Life gives you opportunity to invest for short-term starting from 5 years. So, if you have any short-term goals like a wedding/ buying a car/ family vacation 5 years down the line, ULIPs are a great choice for investment. By investing an amount of just ₹7,500 per month, considering 8% rate of returns, you will get around ₹5 Lakhs*1 at the time of maturity (after 5 years). Isn’t it a good option? Not just this, if you have a long-term goal like buying a house, ULIP can be your best partner. 10 years from now, you might need approximately 45 Lakhs*2 as down payment for your dream house. Big plans ask for big commitments. With 8% rate of return and booster additions, investing ₹27,000 per month in ULIP for next 10 years will help you achieve your dream easily.

ULIP as Child Insurance Plans

As a new parent, the most important piece of advice you get is to start saving for your child’s future! The cost of education is sky high and, with inflation playing a major role, these costs are increasing yearly. A Unit Linked Insurance Plan lets you build a corpus for your child. Edelweiss Tokio Life has ULIPs that have no minimum age limit, that is, you can buy a policy in your child’s name as soon as he/she is born. Your child would pass high school somewhere around the age of 18 years, that is when you need a major sum to pay for his/ her higher education. Suppose your little one is already 3 years of age and considering current education fees of ₹15 Lakhs and an inflation rate of 6%, the expected cost of education after 15 years will be approximately ₹36 Lakhs. If you do not have any other backup, you need to start investing at least 10,000/- per month to not give up on your child’s future. Moreover, a ULIP such as Edelweiss Tokio Life – Wealth Plus  provides you with a ‘Rising Star Benefit’ to help you look out for your kid even in your absence. This option will give your child an additional lumpsum benefit and waive off any future premiums in your absence. This means the financial future of your child is secured even when you are not there to take care of them.

ULIP for Retirement Planning

A ULIP can be a reliable plan for retirement. At the age of 35, you start planning for your retirement and decide on a retirement age of 55. You have 20 years in hand and considering your current liabilities, you are able to contribute 5000/-per month for your plan. Here, considering your plan term as 20 years, at 8% rate of return, you will receive approximately ₹30 Lakhs*3 at the end of the policy period, by which you will be 55. This is a good corpus that you can use for your retirement. You may save it for yearly expenses or use it to buy your dream retirement home.

Since, ULIPs are not guaranteed income products and are linked to market, there is a risk attached.

*1 Assumed at 4% rate of return, return would be ₹ 4,68,340 at the end of your policy term, after 5 years.  (Male, Age: 26 Years, Investment Amount: 7,500, Policy Option: Base, Policy Term: 5 Years, Pay for: 5, Payment: Monthly, Fund Management: Self-Managed)
*2 Assumed at 4%, rate of return would be ₹ 37,48,996 (Male, Age: 26 Years, Investment Amount: 27,000, Policy Option: Base, Policy Term: 10 Years, Pay for: 10, Payment: Monthly, Fund Management: Self-Managed)
*3 Assumed at 4% rate of return, return would be ₹16,16,912 (Male, Age: 35 Years, Investment Amount: 5000, Policy Option: Base, Policy Term: 23 Years, Pay for: 20, Payment: Monthly, Fund Management: Self-Managed)

 

Myths About Investing In ULIPs

 

As ULIPs are complex products, there are numerous myths surrounding them. Some of the myths are:

  • Myth: ULIPs are expensive because of numerous inherent charges.

    Fact: There was observed a massive reduction in the charges that are associated with ULIPs. These reductions have made plans extremely suitable. The charges capping was done to ensure the plan is quite affordable.

  • Myth: They are risky instruments.

    Fact: ULIPs provide the ability to invest in equity, debt, or a mix of debt and equity-based on the policyholder’s suitability. You have the ability to opt for low-risk instruments if you’re risk-averse and vice versa. The risk will entirely depend on the policyholder’s risk profile and instrument chosen.

  • Myth: Market Volatility lowers life cover.
     
    Fact: The insurance coverage will remain unaffected by market volatility. In the event the policyholder meets their untimely demise during the policy’s term, ULIPs provide complete insurance cover or fund value, whichever is higher.
 
 

Why Are ULIPs The Best Investment Option?

 
ULIPs aim at creating long-term wealth by investing money in the market to maximize returns on the investment. Since the money is invested in market, ULIPs are great investment option as they can benefit from market movements and offer healthy returns. A ULIP is an integrated plan that offers investment opportunities as well as insurance protection. A ULIP plan offers the chance to earn market-linked profits, in contrast to a pure life insurance policy that just offers insurance cover. In such a plan, a portion of the premium is invested in market-linked funds.
 
We all know the importance of life cover to protect your family’s financial goals in case of your unfortunate demise or accident. This is where a ULIP stands out, as it provides protection along with market-linked returns in the same plan. Other investment options are purely investment based with no insurance coverage.
 
A little extra for your loyalty is something that you deserve. ULIPs offer loyalty and booster additions for those who stay invested longer in the plan. This feature makes ULIPs better than any other investment product in the market.
 

It all comes down to your needs and liabilities. If you want a long-term wealth accumulation system, and don’t mind a short lock-in period, then ULIP is the go-to for you. The reason for this is that you and your loved ones will also receive life insurance coverage at no additional cost.

 

Tax Incentives3 play a major role in deciding where you invest your money. ULIPs provide double benefits as premiums you pay under a ULIP are eligible for tax deductions u/s 80C and maturity benefit under are exempt if conditions of Section 10(10D), up to Rs 1,50,000 are satisfied# under Income Tax Act, 1961.

And the net premium paid by you is further invested in any of the chosen funds – equity, balanced, debt, etc. Upon ULIP maturity, the fund value of the insurance will be as per the value of the market.

What Is the Difference Between A ULIP And an Endowment Plan?

A ULIP is a market-linked investment cum insurance plan whereas an endowment plan is a life insurance policy which, apart from covering the life of the insured, helps the policyholder save regularly over a specific period of time so that he/she is able to get a lump sum amount on the policy maturity in case he/she survives the policy term. Endowment policies does not provide transparency, as there is no investment portfolio. However, ULIP plan is extremely transparent as you can track your investment portfolio.

What is the Difference Between a Term Plan and A ULIP?

A term plan gives your nominee the life cover amount in case of the policyholder’s demise. But if the policyholder outlives the policy term, he will not receive any benefits. In a ULIP, which is an investment plan, you get a certain amount of maturity benefits based on the funds you have invested in, after the investment period. But if you expire before your policy term, your nominee will get the fund value up to that point. 

Are ULIPs a good investment?

If you're looking for a safe investment that will help you build wealth in the long run, ULIPs are the way to go. This single plan provides you with savings as well as protection. ULIP, or Unit Linked Insurance Plan, is a type of insurance that also serves as an investment. It provides life cover with good returns while also assisting in tax benefits on premiums paid and maturity amount received. Due to these reasons, in today's economy, ULIPs have emerged as one of the greatest investment possibilities.

What is the right time to invest in ULIP?

Anytime is a good time to invest in a ULIP. ULIPs are designed to help you withstand market volatility, so you can invest in them when the markets are down or up. The earlier you begin, the better, since you will be able to take advantage of compounding's power. Compounding is the process of continually reinvesting your earnings in order to expand your wealth. You will be in a better position to realise the benefits if you invest over a longer period of time.

Can we increase the premiums of ULIP?

You have an option to change (increase or decrease) the PPT subject to:

• The PPTs allowed under the plan

• All other conditions in the plan being met

• Provided all the due premiums till the date of such request have been paid.

In case of decrease of PPT, the revised PPT shall not be less than 10 years. This option can be exercised while the policy is in-force and before the expiry of the existing PPT. 

Can ULIPs give higher returns?

In a single plan, unit-linked insurance plans combine the benefits of funds diversification with the benefits of life insurance. Both market-linked awards and life insurance are included in a ULIP. They are extremely adaptable and reliable and can help you get better returns with the power of compounding. You can review each fund's performance and alter the fund(s) you want to invest in based on your preferences and risk tolerance.

What is the NAV in ULIP?

NAV stands for Net Asset Value. The net asset value (NAV) of an investment fund is the asset value per unit minus the liability value. This figure aids in the monitoring of your fund's performance. Understanding NAV necessitates a fundamental understanding of how ULIPs operate.
