While we work towards our long term financial goals, there are other events in life when some cash inflow can be of great help. It could be for making the down payment for your first car, for a much needed family holiday, to pay for college applications, etc. Therefore, to help you take care of such requirements, Star Union Dai-ichi has introduced the Guaranteed Money Back Plan which rewards you with regular payouts at fixed periods. This is a traditional money back plan which helps provide financial protection and stability for the future by way of guaranteed lump sum payments while also providing for your short term financial goals. The benefits aren’t just limited to you, but also extend to your family. In the unfortunate event of your untimely demise, this plan assures financial security to your family members so they can not only maintain but also improve their lifestyle with enhanced savings.
