Yes, buying a term plan is the most underrated and often neglected financial planning step. As soon as someone gets his/her first salary or income life insurance must be bought. Yes, before you save, invest or start building assets, life insurance must be taken care of. It took me 10 years to realize the true meaning of life insurance and the importance of getting one’s life insured. Always remember, Sabse Pahle Life Insurance, the slogan by IRDA’s life insurance initiative for public awareness.
You won’t drive a new car without insurance, you don’t start using the mobile phone without a cover then how come you neglect the importance of insuring the most important thing, ‘your life’.
The most basic rule of financial planning or money management is to secure your belongings. Life insurance does that very efficiently and in fact it is the only way to secure your future earning
Another outlook to life insurance is that you plan your legacy (something that you wish to leave for your loved ones) well before you actually earn it. So even if you haven’t earned and saved enough, you can still make provisions for a huge mount to be passed on to your next generation, in case you face untimely death.
To understand why term plan from LIC of India is a good (if not the greatest) financial investment decision, lets look at the risks of not getting ample life insurance. Life is uncertain and full of surprises. You never know what will happen the next moment. That’s life and we cannot cannot everything it does to us. Though we can surely be prepared to face the worst, if not all aspects at least money wise.
A term plan or the pure insurance plan helps us in doing this. A life insurance plan is the replacement of financial earnings in case the policy holder dies. Agreed money cannot buy you everything but surely it does help you buy mos of the things and you need money foremost. Money cannot compensate fully for the loss but will surely give you the financial support to fight the bad days.

Term plans with maturity benefit
There is no such thing as a term plan with maturity benefit. If you are falling for this, bear in mind you are paying (way too much that you actually get back) for the return of maturity benefit. In simple terms if you plan guarantees return of premium you have been tricked into buying a life insurance plus investment plan.
