What is Insurance & its Types

No one’s life is perfect! Whatever may be our background, monetary-wise, health-wise, family-wise et al. And none of us can ever predict the unexpected surprises life has in store, some positive and some negative. And in such situations, insurance prepares you to handle those unpleasant surprises that could arise during our entire lifetime!


What is Insurance - Insurance is a protective net that you take to secure yourself against unpredictable situations, or against unforeseen emergencies.
By and large insurance can be classified into two types- General Insurance and Life Insurance! Lest we say, both are equally important.

What is Life Insurance?

As the name suggests, this insurance covers your life. Literally! It ensures that you and your family are financially stable in the unfortunate case of you becoming disabled due to a mishap, or worse.

While taking a Life Insurance policy you either make a lump-sum payment while purchasing a life insurance policy or make periodic payments to the insurer. These are known as premiums. In exchange, your insurer promises to pay an assured sum to your family in the event of death, disability or at a set time.

Life Insurance has different plans based on the kind of coverage it offers:

  • Term Plans
  • Endowment Plans
  • Moneyback Plans
  • Pension Plans

So, Life insurance can also help you support your family even after retirement.

Life insurance not only ensures the well-being of your family, it also brings tax benefits:

  • The amount you pay as premium can be deducted from your total taxable income.
  • However, this is subject to a maximum of Rs 1.5 lakh, under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act.
  • The premium amount used for tax deduction should not exceed 10% of the sum assured.

Types of Life Insurance

Term Plan

These plans are for pure protection where if the insured survives there is no money back, but only on the death of the insured the family gets a lump sum amount.

Endowment Plan

These plans offer a lump sum after a certain period, even if the insured survives the policy term. In case of death of the insured, the insured’s family gets a lump sum amount.

Money Back Plan

These plans offer a lump sum amounts at regular intervals within the policy term and the left-over amount is offered as a lump sum once the policy term is over, even if the insured survives.

Pension Plan

These are retirement or annuity plans, that offers annuity or money at regular intervals. These plans start immediately from the very next day of the start of the policy.

What is General Insurance?

General insurance offers you Insurance or financial compensation for everything else in life, except life itself!

General insurance compensates with monetary benefits for any mishaps related to your house, car, bike, health, travel et al. The insurance company will pay you an assured sum to cover damages to your vehicle, medical treatments to cure health problems, losses due to theft or fire, or even financial problems during travel and much, much more!

Simply put, general insurance offers financial protection for all your assets against loss, damage, theft, and other liabilities.
