With the festive season right around the corner, and the events of the last couple of years still fresh in our minds, it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that a lot of people have had to rethink their priorities in life. Being healthy, secure and living a stress-free life - these are things that are right at the top of the list. So this brings us to the topic of insurance - term plans specifically. Life Insurance used to be just that - a stock of funds that your family is supposed to get, once you pass. But as the life expectancy in India keeps rising, so does the way people experience their lives. It’s safe to say that we no longer want to sit in chairs, sew woolens, and wait for that eventuality.

We want to live the moments that we couldn’t live otherwise. That’s travelling, trying out food, watching sunsets, stargazing, and more. The face of life insurance today, has evolved into more than a basic protection plan. After all, wouldn’t you too want to reap the benefits of your financial legacy?
