FAQs

What is general insurance?
Life insurance is an agreement that guarantees payment of a stated amount of monetary benefits at the end of a specified term or on the death of the life insured.
Why do I need life insurance?
Life insurance provides for financial security in the event of death or on the inability to earn due to physical disabilities. Besides providing for financial security in the case of one's untimely death, it can be used to accumulate a kitty for your old age, systematically build assets, for funding your child's education and also for saving on taxes.
I know I need insurance, but cannot afford the coverage. Can I do anything to lower the cost?
The cost of life insurance depends on three factors: your age, health and your income. We suggest that you not compromise on the level of protection you require. You could purchase a basic protection policy that gives you the opportunity to pay only the minimum premium. You can choose this affordable policy, without any riders.
