Are you going to buy a policy, know what you have to keep in mind

Insurance: Taking a life insurance policy is not as easy as it sounds. Actually taking insurance is an important decision which should be taken carefully.

However, if this happens to you, then do not panic, you still have one option left. Before this, it has to be known that why people choose the wrong policy.

Why do people choose the wrong policy?

Get all the information yourself

  • Before taking a policy, first get every information from yourself.
  • Choose the policy according to the needs of you and the family.
  • Compare thoroughly between multiple policies.
  • A comparison should be made between the premium, claim settlement ratio, total cover amount and features offered by different policies.

What to do during the ‘free look period’

  • Check all the highlights of the policy.
  • Get information about Sum Assured, Policy Term, Premium Amount, all.
  • After obtaining all the necessary information, if you are satisfied with the policy, then continue with the policy, otherwise the policy may be terminated during the ‘free look period’.
