    Useful Tips To Buy Life Insurance
    01
    Lower Premium for Early Birds

    Life insurance premiums are calculated based on an individual’s age. The younger you are, the lower the premiums charged. Buy a policy early to avail a long-term, low-cost cover to protect your immediate and extended family

    02
    Calculate Your Needs

    When estimating how much coverage you need, consider all your present as well as future financial obligations, as well as those of your dependents. Life insurance termplans are the most popular protection plans, offering high coverage at low premiums.

    03
    Brace for Inflation

    When buying term insurance plans, account for inflation! A cover of Rs.50 lakh may look sufficient today but may not cut it 20 years from now. When estimating how much you should cover yourself for, consider how rising prices will affect future financial requirements.

    04
    The Net's Your Best Bet

    Online life insurance policies are the most economical and convenient life insurance products you can opt for. By cutting out the middlemen i.e. the agents, these policies are more easily accessible and offer time-saving features like online renewability.

    Your Life insurance premium is determined by

    01
    Your Current Age

    The younger you are, the lower your premiums will be. Premiums increase with age, as does insurer's level of risk. Make use of your youth, apply quick!

    02
    Gender

    The battle of the sexes extends to the life insurance premium battlefield too. Since women on an average live longer than men, their insurance premiums are lower by a tiny margin.

    03
    Smoking Preference

    Cigarettes? Chewing tobacco? Snuff? Insurers calculate premiums based on the risk they undertake while insuring your health, which tobacco destroys. We aren't preaching, just telling you what to expect.

    04
    Tenure of Coverage

    Insurers undertake greater risk the longer they cover you. Premiums on short-term policies are more expensive, but long-term life insurance plans have more payments.

    How much of Life insurance coverage a person should get depends on

    (Multiplying your current annual income by 10 is a useful way to determine coverage.)

    01
    Number of Dependents

    The more dependents you have, the higher the life insurance pay-out will have to be, to take care of them after you're gone.

    02
    Your Current & Future LifeStyle Expenses

    For those you leave behind to maintain a comfortable lifestyle, calculate your expenses and get a life insurance policy with a matching pay-out.

    03
    Your outstanding Liabilities like home loan, car loan, etc

    If you're leaving your house, car and business to your dependants, you may also be leaving them your debt through unpaid house and car loans. Arrange to clear your debts, or to have an insurance pay-out large enough to clear it for you.

    04
    Your Investments /Savings

    If you're confident that you have ample savings and investments to carry your dependents through their lives without you to provide for them, choose a policy with a lower pay-out and consequently lower premiums. If not, do the opposite.

    • Penetration of insurance in India increases to 3.49%

      A report by reinsurer Swiss Re indicated that the insurance penetration in India has seen a growth from 3.40% to 3.49% in the financial year, 2016-17. Insurance penetration is measured as a percentage of premiums to gross domestic product, i.e., GDP.

      General insurance penetration stands at 0.77%, while life insurance penetration is at 2.72%. Insurance density in India is at USD 59.7 for FY17, much lesser than the average for Asia. The global average for insurance density is USD 638.3.

      The report said that the initiatives undertaken by the Indian and Chinese governments to develop specific lines will support liability, credit, and agricultural insurance schemes.

      The report also mentioned that life premiums saw a hike of 8%, owing to the demand for immediate annuity plans post demonetisation. Further, it states that premiums are likely to increase in the coming years, owing to bancassurance systems, digital distribution avenues, and the promotion of protection schemes.

    • New crop insurance scheme sees overall positive response

      The campaign initiated by the Agriculture Department of the Kerala state government to increase the participation of farmers in the revised crop insurance scheme has seen success. The department has revealed that block panchayat level reports from Kozhikode district indicate that the revised scheme has been well-received. The scheme has not seen high popularity in urban areas of the distrcit, owing to lower population of farmers.

      Until recently, 10% farmers had only enrolled into the crop insurance scheme in Kozhikode district. Promotional events pertaining to the revised scheme has gained hundreds of fresh enrolments.

      The Deputy Director of Agriculture said that 50 individuals from each of the 81 Krishi Bhavans in Kozhikode had enrolled into the scheme during the drive. The revised insurance cover is provided for 25 crops, and will financially assist farmers in case of unprecedented events or loss.

      The government expects that the reloaded scheme will improve the participation of farmers in the future. Farmer’s organisations such as We Farm and Indian Farmer’s Movement (Infarm) have applauded the revised crop insurance scheme and its promotion. These bodies state that the increase in insurance coverage would greatly assist the ailing farming community.

    • Under GST, all insurance plans will not attract 18% tax

      The Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime that was implemented on 1 July 2017 has increased the tax rate on certain insurance products from 15% to 18%. Contrary to popular belief, all products will not see a hike of 3% in tax.

      If you are buying a new insurance plan, i.e., motor, term, health, or unit-linked insurance product, the 18% rate of taxation will be applicable. Earlier, the rate of service tax on these products were 14%, and along with cess, the final tax rate would come up to 15%. Now, there is a flat 3% increase in the rate of tax.

      If you are buying an endowment plan or a single premium policy, the tax rate is 4.5%. For renewal premiums, the tax charged is 2.25%. For single premium annuity plans, the rate of taxation is 1.8%.

      Effectively, there is a differential rate of taxation in insurance, based on the premium paying term and the type of product. It is also understood that micro-insurance policies with maximum sum assured of Rs.50,000 and government-sponsored insurance products will be exempted from tax.
