When you insure your life, in effect what you are doing is insuring your earning capacity. This guarantees that your dependents will be able to continue living without financial hardships even in case of your demise.

Most insurance plans available today come with a savings element built into it. These policies help you plan not only for protection against death but also for a financially independent future, which would enable you to have a comfortable retirement

As a tool of financial planning

Most insurance plans available today have a built in savings element

As a tool of financial planning

You may avail of a loan from the insurance company against certain plans. Your policy could also be pledged as a collateral to raise funds from banks and other financial institutions. In case of your unfortunate death the loans may be repaid from the proceeds of the life insurance policy.

Savings Insurance promotes compulsory savings with regular premium payments and helps build up a corpus of funds along with financial security for the dependents in case of premature death. For your medical needs and that of your family

Hospitalization costs and quality healthcare is becoming increasingly expensive. Without insurance, you can actually face a situation where you have withdrawn all your money and borrowed to pay the medical bills. This can be provided with our Critical Illness Benefit. Insurance provides you the option of covering yourself towards any critical illnesses that can become extremely costly. Choosing this facility pays you a lump sum upon diagnosis of certain diseases like cancer, kidney failure, heart attack, stroke, coronary bypass, vital organ transplants, Alzheimer's disease, paralysis, etc.

How much do I insure myself for?

One of the simplest rules is to assume that insurance is a replacement for your lost earning capacity. Calculate your total income for the years that you expect to work.

Assuming that the prevailing interest rate is 8%, you need to insure your life for at least 12 times your current annual income. Assuming that a family needs Rs.100 annually for household expenditure and the rate of interest would be at 8%, then the breadwinner needs to have a life insurance policy of approximately Rs.1200. If the insurance amount were to be put in the bank by the family, the family would get a comfortable Rs.96 p.a., which would at least let the family maintain the current life style.

However to calculate your insurance need more precisely, use the following steps:

•             Calculate Monthly Livable Income required (Post tax). This is the monthly amount that the survivors of the policyholder will need in the event of his death. This is taken at 70% of the current total family expenses. Denote this as "M".

•             Calculate Monthly Income required (Pre tax) as M/ (100-t)%. Denote this as "M1". Here t = Tax rate.

•             Calculate Annual Income (A) = M1*12.

•             Assume Estimated-earning rate on capital as 8%. Denote this as "r".

•             Calculate Capital livable income required (C ) as A/ r%.

•             Subtract Existing Insurance Cover amount (if any) from "C".

•             The final amount you arrive at is the amount for which you should buy insurance.
