An Introduction to Protection Plans
Securing your family’s well-being is one of the most important goals of life. Insurance Protection plans help you secure your loved one’s future against life’s uncertainties. Your untimely death can cause a major setback to your family - both emotionally as well as financially, especially if you are the sole breadwinner. With a term life insurance policy, you can ensure your family’s financial independence, in case anything untoward happens to you. Besides, term plans are cost-effective too, as they focus on providing only life cover and no returns.
A term life insurance policy, thus, sets you free from the worries of what will happen to your loved ones in your absence, letting your family and you enjoy life with peace of mind.
With protection plans you can give your family:
- Financial security
- Emotional wellbeing
- Freedom from the burden of debt
- Guarantee of a life with dignity and self-respect
Protecting your future against misfortune should be the first step in financial planning. Once you have secured the future well, you can then look at creating an investment portfolio that will let you achieve your financial goals. In a nutshell, you should first take care of your protection needs before you set aside funds for savings, investments or expenditure.
To enjoy an insurance cover wherein you are not under-insured, you need to know your human life value. Simply put, human life value would provide an estimated figure of the financial amount your family would require to meet their expenses and liabilities, in case something unfortunate was to happen to you.

Though the premium payable on term plans is considerably lower vis-à-vis other life insurance plans, the premium differs with age. As the age increases, so does the cost of the policy.
The following table depicts the premium payable by two non-smoking individuals (males) of different ages to avail of a term cover of Rs 25 lakh for 15 years.
|Age||Insurance Cover (in Rs)||Term (Years)||Premium Payable (in Rs)|
|30 years||25 lakh||15||3557|
|40 years||25 lakh||15||6011|
For the same insurance cover, the younger person pays lesser premium. The earlier you start the better.
Through term plans the biggest gift that you and your family receive is freedom from financial worries. A term plan enables you to give your family:
- Financial security
Your untimely death may deprive your dependants of emotional security. But, your timely and wise decision of choosing a term plan will surely not rob them of financial stability, even when you are no longer around.
- Debt-free existence
You wouldn't want to burden your family with the responsibility of repaying your loans, should anything unfortunate happen to you. Don't let misfortune snatch away your family's happiness. In case of your untimely death, the benefits under your loan protection plan would be sufficient enough for repaying your loans, including your home loan. With a home loan protection plan, you can ensure that your family continues to own the house that you so fondly purchased for them.
- Freedom to live your dreams
With term plans in place, you can be assured that your dear ones continue to enjoy financial independence and live their dreams, even if you are not around to support them.
- Enhanced protection through riders
Riders enhance your insurance cover and are optional benefits that you may add to your term plan policy. You can avail the following riders:
