Insurances are one of the most under-rated investment plans in the current day scenario. Although we have heard a lot about the life insurances, term plans, endowment plans and all, we still remain clueless about how to go about it. Endless explanations from the agents leave us wanting for more information, and even if it is available, it is just not enough.
After you have managed get that perfect policy for yourself, it is time to pay the premiums and keep a stringent check on the status of the policy. Let’s face it, we all tend to forget about it until the next premium is due. An irresponsible behavior in terms of policy purchase and services can defer several benefits which might have been in your kitty if it was the case otherwise. Life, as we know, is busy and it is only likely that you forget it. But do you ignore it completely?
Even if grace periods are available and that can prevent the policy from a subsequent lapse, you still need to check the policy plan and term so that you do not stretch it so far. Staying updated about premium payments do not require you to run from pillar to post which in this case would be the agents you took the policy from or the LIC office themselves.
