Can you save tax while investing in life insurance?

Life Insurance is one of the most effective tools to ensure that your family is taken care of financially long after you are gone. It works not only in the future but also in the present by taking away your worries and concerns. Another great advantage that life insurance offers in the present day is tax benefit.

Turn your Life Insurance into a tax planning tool

Life insurance policies can be useful tax planning tools, as the policy holder is eligible for tax benefits under the Income Tax Act, 1961. Though there are multiple modes for saving tax, life insurance is one of the most effective tax-planning instruments. You can not only save tax but also look at achieving long-term goals.
