Why do I need Term Insurance?
Before delving into why you need to buy term insurance, let’s look at a few soul-searching questions:
- Do you think you’ve ensured your family’s financial security in your absence?
- Are your investments and/or savings enough to support your family when they cannot rely on your monthly income?
- Will your family members be free of the burden of your liabilities and debt payments in case of your demise?
If you have answered NO to any of these questions, buying a term plan is a necessary investment for you. Here’s why:
Whether you’re the head of your family, a single parent, a business owner, or a salaried employee, buying a term insurance plan that suits your needs is the smartest way to ensure your family’s financial future.
To safeguard your family’s financial stability
The financial impact of losing an earning member of the family can severely reduce the standard of living of dependents, and put an end to their dreams for the future. Continue being the wind beneath your loved one’s wings by ensuring their financial stability, even in your absence.
To be prepared
Plan, not to fail. Fail not, to plan. The only thing certain in life is that everything is uncertain. The best way to deal with life’s uncertainties is to be prepared for all eventualities. A substantial life cover such as a 1 crore term insurance can protect your family against life’s vagaries.
To protect your assets
If you have a car or home loan to pay off, these liabilities transfer to your family members in the case of your untimely demise. A term insurance policy helps secure your family’s future. The lump sum death benefit can be used to pay off any liabilities and debts, and protect your assets without causing your family any stress.
To keep lifestyle changes to a minimum
Your family is used to a certain standard of living. Your dependents have dreams of a brighter future—plans for further education, marriage, and peaceful life. Losing a breadwinner can quickly turn things for the worse and make it difficult for your loved ones to live as comfortably as they did before. A term cover offers benefits that can make their financial future simple and secure.

How much term coverage do I need?
Is a sum assured of Rs. 50,00,000 enough or should you opt for a Rs. 1 crore term plan? A general rule of thumb is that the sum assured in your term plan should be at least 10-20x your current annual income, after taking into consideration any debts you have, and outstanding loans and liabilities to be paid.
So, if your annual income is around Rs. 10 lakhs, you should buy a term plan of Rs. 1 crore or more. Often, people reverse engineer the process and go with a sum assured that has an affordable premium. However, this is not the right way to arrive at how much term coverage you need. With a rational mind, think of your future expenditure, inflation, and dependents.
Your considerations should include:
- Maintenance of standard of living for your family
- Repayment of loans and debts
- Expenses in the future—child’s education, wedding, etc.
- Investments to be made in the future

What are the factors that affect term insurance rates?
The premium amount you will pay depends on:
Buy a term plan as early as possible in life. Young people are at a lower risk of falling ill with life-threatening conditions. Furthermore, younger people typically pay more premiums than older folks. This means that your premium amount is lower the younger you are when you buy the term policy.
Research studies indicate that women generally live longer than men. Typically, there is a higher probability that women will pay more premiums in the long run as compared to men, and so, women pay comparatively lower premium amounts.
Personal and family medical history
Your medical history undoubtedly plays a large role in arriving at your term insurance premium rates. A history of ailments such as cancer or heart conditions in the family is likely to raise your insurance rates. Similarly, if you have any pre-existing high-risk health conditions, it will have a bearing on your premium rates.
One of the primary considerations is whether you are a smoker. If you have not smoked at all in the preceding year, you can self-declare as a non-smoker. Premium rates for non-smokers are lower.

How much term coverage should you buy if you are 30 years old with an annual income of Rs. 5 lakhs?
The term cover sum assured you choose depends on several factor. Typically, the age of retirement is around 60 years. At 30 years old, you have approximately 30 years of earning left. In most jobs, you can expect a raise and a consequent change in standard of living every couple of years. It is recommended to buy term cover that is at least 10-20x your annual income, with consideration given to additional liabilities and inflation.

My company already covers me, why should I buy a term plan separately?
While a company cover might sound great, is it really good enough? Research indicates that most employers offer coverage that is roughly equivalent to an employee’s annual income. This is not enough to meet the needs of your family/dependents in case of untimely demise of life assured. Another limitation of company cover is that it is valid only until you stay employed by the company.
If you quit, are fired, decide to freelance, or the company itself shuts shop, you will end up with no insurance cover at all. Meanwhile, years will have gone by and the cost of term plans will be much higher for you because of your age. Secure your family’s financial future, whether or not you have company cover.
What happens if the policy holder survives the term covered?

Do I need to declare as a tobacco user if I smoke occasionally?
Yes. If you have used nicotine in the last 12 months, you need to clearly declare yourself as a user of tobacco. Withholding this information is likely to hamper the claim settlement process at a later stage.
Why is a smoking habit a factor in determining term life insurance premium amounts?
The use of nicotine is a relevant factor while determining term plan premium amounts as research shows that non-smokers have a longer life-expectancy than smokers across over the world. While covering a smoker, the insurer takes on more risk, and so, the premiums to be paid by smokers are higher than those paid by non-smokers.
