Honestly speaking, investing in the SBI ULIP plan was one of the best decisions of my life. After investing for 20 years, I received the maturity benefit. With that amount, I will be able to send my daughter abroad for her higher studies and save something for her marriage. In this time of inflation, saving for your future expenses is a must. and SBI will help you.
