How to find the Best Savings Plan?

Savings plans are a great idea to secure the future of your family. Throughout the years in which you earn, preferably at the peak of your career, you try putting aside a certain amount of money and pay premiums for a guaranteed savings plan so that you and your family can enjoy the benefits after the maturity period is reached.

With the rising rates of inflation and increasing costs of healthcare, education and lifestyle, this plan ensures your family receives a fixed amount of allowance after your death. Therefore, a guaranteed savings plan is essential for the breadwinner of any family so that they will be well-off in your absence.

But with the diversification of the demographic that goes for savings plans these days, insurance companies and banks have rolled a variety of options. It may be difficult for an average Indian to discern the differences between all of these savings plans and determine the best for you.

Canara HSBC Oriental Bank of Commerce Life Insurance offers various guaranteed savings plans from which you can pick and choose the best according to your economic circumstances. The ideal savings plan should help you grow your investment through regular investments through disciplined premiums paid throughout a specific period. You will be eligible for certain benefits and allowances until the policy’s termination.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for Term Insurance

Each insurance company has its own term insurance premium calculator. If you want to check out the premium quote, go for the iSelect Star term plan calculator. It gives a premium amount based on your age, gender, habits, education, and annual income.

You can purchase an iSelect Star term plan anytime between 18 to 70 years of age.

It depends on your needs. For example, if you want to cover a child's education or wedding expenses, you have to include them in your coverage. Your premium will be calculated accordingly.

  • Accidental Disability Rider If the policyholder can't pay the premium because of an accident or permanent disability, a sudden disability this pays the premium on behalf of the policyholder till completion of policy term or for a defined duration.
  • Critical Illness Rider If the insured person gets a heart attack, cancer, or any other critical illness, this rider pays a lump sum on valid diagnosis.
  • Premium Waiver Rider If the policyholder is unable to make payments due to income loss or disability, a premium waiver rider waives off all future premium payments. And the term policy remains active until the expiration date.
  • Income Rider: The rider ensures that your family receives regular income + sum insured in case of unfortunate demise of life insured.

Anyone can go for life insurance as it offers some savings after the maturity date, but it doesn't cover the protection of your family . The best term insurance plan is solely designed for taking care of loved ones if something happens to you. Term plans act as a shield between your family and sudden financial fall.
