The most critical step in buying insurance is calculating the amount of coverage you require. You should avoid the mistake of under-insuring yourself as it will not serve the idea behind investing in an insurance plan. As you grow older and your lifestyle requirements evolve, it would be wiser to protect and safeguard your family by getting adequate life cover.

Consider your life-stage
Your life insurance requirements and priorities differ at every stage of life, therefore, it is important to understand what life stage you are at before buying a plan. Take into consideration the dependent members of your family, as this will ascertain the amount of money you need to invest. The financial responsibilities of a married person would naturally vary from that of someone who is single. Similarly, your financial responsibility would be greater if you have children or if your parents are dependent on you.
Understand Policy Benefits
Once you have zeroed in on the policy based on your needs and the track record of the company, take time to understand the features of the policy. Make sure to check and evaluate the features related to the policy term, premium-paying term, sum assured and benefits. Policy brochures/ offer documents should not merely be browsed through but actually read in detail.

- How much life cover should I buy in an insurance plan?
Your life cover should be enough to pay off all your debts including loans and replace your income, especially if you are the sole earning member of your family. Adding your annual income to your policy might serve as an effective guard against inflation. Keep in mind your future obligations – such as the education of your child and the health of your spouse.
- At what age should I buy insurance?
While there is no “right age” to buy insurance, you need to be at least 18 years old. Starting early is a wise decision. If you have a steady income that allows you to pay your premiums on time, you’re ready to invest in your family’s future. If you are married, have children or parents who are dependent on you, you should definitely consider an insurance policy. As you age, the premiums to be paid increases.
- What should the tenure of my plan be?
You should opt for maximum term available under the plan in order to ensure financial security of your loved ones.
- Will I get maturity benefit if I survive the tenure of the plan?
The main aspect of a protection plan is to ensure the security of your loved ones in your absence. However, there is no lump-sum pay-out on the survival of the policyholder.
- Will my premium amount change during the tenure of the policy?
Your premium amount remains the same during the entire tenure of the plan. The only change your premium is subject to is change in service tax regulations, as declared by the Government of India.
- I am an occasional smoker. Do I still need to declare myself as a tobacco user?
Yes, even if you are an occasional smoker, you would need to declare yourself as a tobacco-user. This is important as all medical history is imperative in determining the right premium for the policy.
