If you are a parent, it is extremely important for you to get a term insurance policy as you have the responsibility of providing for your child. Term covers provide coverage for financial securities arising out of the death of the primary earner.
The birth of a child, though a very joyous occasion, ushers a new set of duties and responsibilities for the new parents. Besides their moral responsibility towards proper upbringing, parents are also vested with the financial responsibility of providing for their child. When it comes to children, raising them can be an expensive affair, especially given the cost of tuition fees in schools, their lifestyle expenses, wedding expenses, etc. Regardless of whether one or both parents are income earners, having a term insurance plan is an absolute must to ensure the best future for the child, especially if one or both parents happen to suddenly pass away.
Speaking of term insurance, it is undoubtedly the most popular type of life insurance available in the market. Its popularity rests on a number of reasons, such as easy affordability, and the high degree of cover it provides. A term plan typically provides cover for a fixed amount of sum assured for a fixed time period, at nominal premiums. In case of the death of the policyholder, the nominee gets the sum assured benefit amount, which can help them take care of future needs, which includes children’s upbringing expenses.
