When the word "plans" comes to our minds, what is associated with that word? The term plans are something most talked about nowadays. The best way to back your future is a Savings plan. These plans are considered the best investment methods by experts.
So, what is a savings plan? And what is the best option for a Saving plan?
A savings plan is an insurance plan that helps an individual to gather and set aside a reserve pool for the future. They ensure returns when the policyholders need it the most. It is a systematic and disciplined plan.
Why do we need a Saving plan?
Age and term:
These plans are flexible and can be molded according to the age of the holder. For example, for a young person, the risk-taking factor may be high so that they may be suitable for unit-linked insurance plans (ULIPs) and those who can't afford risks like money back or endowment plans. The long term plan also allows securing a minimum amount during the policy term.
Life covers and provisions:
Some plans like ULIPs offer life insurance and another benefit of savings return. Other provisions provided by ULIPs are the protection of the holder and his family against any loss like accidental death, disability, and illness.
Options of investment:
They offer investment in tools like equities, including fixed interest securities, including corporate bonds, government securities, and money market instruments.
Like most plans, Saving plans also offer tax benefits. According to section 80c of the Indian Tax Act, 1961, a policyholder can save up to 1.5 lakhs. Maturity and death benefits are also eligible for tax exemption under 10D of the Indian Income Tax Act, 1961.
Helps in meeting specific goals:
Some of these plans are designed towards meeting the goals of policyholders, like education goals for children.

How does a savings plan work?
Investors can customize their policies according to their goals and requirements in just three simple steps:
STEP 1: CHOOSING YOUR PERFECT PLAN
According to the investor's financial need, plans can be selected :
- If they want a life cover within the policy term and lump sum after maturity, they can choose the "Guaranteed Savings plan."
- If they want enhanced protection with policy benefits and lump sum after maturity, then we can recommend "Guaranteed Savings plan with Double protection" (with sudden accidental death additional amount is given, but in case of other deaths, no amount is paid)
- And if you are thinking about your child's future, then a "guaranteed savings plan" with "premium protection" is available.
STEP 2: CHOOSING YOUR PREMIUM AMOUNT
You can choose the amount you are comfortable with available at your maturity policy to compromise your financial needs.
STEP 3: CHOOSING YOUR PAYMENT TERM AND PREMIUM PAYMENT
This step will determine how you will choose your payment plan, preference, savings, along with your future goals.
The benefits will change and vary according to the specific plans. Some of the services are given below:
Assured amount of sum on the death, which is a slightly higher amount:
- You will get 11 times of annual premium
- 105% of Total Premiums Paid as on date of death, or
- Guaranteed Sum Assured Maturity, or
- The reassured amount is paid on death
The investors can avail of all the benefits at the end of policy years after completing premium maturity. Your guaranteed income will be equal to annual Income with boosters if applicable.
|Premium payment term||Policy term||Total number of income payouts||Timing of income payouts||Income payment percentage||Basic Guaranteed annual income|
|7||12||5||End of Policy years||140%||(The income payout percentage ) × annualized premium|
|10||15||5||End of Policy years||200%||Income payout percentage× annualized premium|
If you survive through the end of policy ( your dues are fully paid ), then you will receive guaranteed savings at the end of maturity. Then you cannot avail any benefit, and your policy will terminate.
In case of your sudden demise ( within the policy period), your heir will receive all your amount payable, and after that, your policy will terminate. Plus, your survival benefit that is already paid will not be deducted.
In sudden need of cash, you can take the loan amount under the surrender value. The minimum amount of loan is about 20,000 and is the maximum 80% of the surrender value. Loan can only be availed at in-force policy.
