What are the reasons for buying life insurance?

If you are the main breadwinner and are worried about your family’s ability to support themselves financially in case you die unexpectedly, you can buy a life insurance policy and name a family member as a beneficiary. In case of untimely death, a pre-fixed lump sum (the amount that you have been insured for) will be paid out to your beneficiary. You can choose this payment to be paid one time or on a recurring basis. In case of your untimely death and the loss of your earnings, your beneficiary or beneficiaries can use this money for living, education or marriage expenses and will not suffer financially due to the loss of your earnings.

The premium can be paid on a regular basis - monthly, half yearly or annually or even as a one- time payment in some cases.  In the case of endowment insurance plans, if the insured survives the tenure of the policy, he/she is eligible to receive a lump sum of money known as the Maturity Amount.

Buying life insurance not only confers financial security in case of untimely death but it also brings mental peace of mind in knowing that your loved ones will be financially secure even if something were to happen to you.
