    Why you should buy HDFC Life Unit Linked Insurance Plans?

    Started in 2000, HDFC Life is one of the largest insurance providers in the country. Over the years the company has designed some of the best ULIPs to cater to the interests of a variety of investors. Here are some of the reasons why you should invest in HDFC ULIPs.

    • Plans for everything and everyone: As mentioned earlier, HDFC has a ULIP plan for everyone from a fresher employee to experienced veterans on the verge of retirement. Besides, the company also offers several plans which are designed to serve a purpose. For instance, if an investor’s main aim is simply to invest, they can go with the HDFC Click2Invest online plan, which invests in equities and offers decent returns along with an insurance cover.

    On the other hand, if an individual wants to save up for their retirement, they can go with Single Premium Life plan, which helps them save a corpus for their future. There are also specific plans for children, maximising wealth, etc., which not too many insurance providers offer at present.

    • Easy signing up process: Nearly every ULIP offered by HDFC Life is available to be bought online, meaning people can save their trips to the nearest insurance office branch. Also, HDFC Life allows paying premiums through ECS, credit cards, net banking, which makes owning one of their policies to buy and maintain.
    • Tax benefits: According to the Income Tax Act, premiums paid and death benefits are eligible for tax exemptions based on Section 80C, Section 80CC, and Section 10 (10D). This means that the money you spend and receive through a ULIP, will be available to you and your family without much tax deductions.
    • Good fund management: ULIPs are primarily linked to the equities market, which means the company offering such plans need to have a group of talented trade analysts who can maximise profitability. HDFC Life has a number of talented and highly qualified fund management divisions, which invest money in various types of government and private funds to generate good returns.

    Bottomline, ULIPs are the perfect investment option for people who are financially illiterate but want to invest in stocks and also receive insurance coverage at the same time.
