  • A look at premium rates for some insurance policies of a sum assured of 1 crore across three age categories for policy terms of 30, 25 and 20 years

Life insurance is not about investing your money to earn a return on it, it’s about financial protection for your loved ones. The most efficient way to do that is through a term insurance policy.
