Term Insurance 8828 views September 20, 2019
The sum assured amount that you determine while buying a term insurance plan may not be enough to secure the future of your loved ones. Moreover, your nominee(s) may not be financially literate to make optimum use of the assured death benefits received in a lump sum. Also, while the lump sum death payouts may be used by the nominee(s) to pay off lingering loans, it is important they have something in hand to meet their monthly operational expenses.
This is where customers may consider Max Life Insurance Company’s Online Term Plan Plus as it ensures an increasing monthly income in addition to the basic life cover.
