Reason 1-

Term insurance plans are always cheap, and they fit easily within the budget. This is also a basic life insurance plan where the policyholder needs to pay a small premium amount and the company fixes a death benefit based on the premium paid. In lieu of just a nominal premium, it offers a huge death coverage.

Reason 2-

Term insurance plans include tax-free death benefit where the sum received by the nominee of the policy-holder is tax-free. The government does not levy tax on the assured sum as the taxes are already given while the premiums are paid. Though some instances may make the amount counted as taxable.

Reason 3-

Term insurance plans give you even higher benefits if you buy the insurance at an early age. The earlier you buy the insurance, the lower the premium you have pay.

Reason 4-

Term insurance helps you choose between short term life insurance and insurance for a longer term. Though some insurance companies offer term insurance till the age of 70-75, iProtect has the provision to opt for a cover till the age of 99.

Reason 5-

The premium amount paid for term life insurance are fixed and do not vary with time unless there are any changes in the tax laws.

Reason 8-

Few insurance covers like iProtect Smart allow you to protect the assured amount from creditors and fraudsters through false claims. It ensures that the assured sum will be paid out to your nominee only, which can be your wife or children.

Reason 9-

You can very easily buy term insurance online by choosing between different types of term life insurance. You can always visit the company website of your choice and follow simple steps to opt for the best term life insurance that suits your requirements. Term plans that are bought online are comparatively cheaper than getting it from the agents.

Reason 10-

Once you agree to the terms and conditions of the insurance, you get into an agreement with the company where the company is liable to pay you the assured amount. But you can always change the policy type or drop the policy completely without being accountable for any penalty.

To conclude-
