Topic: LIFE INSURANCE      Submitted on:
Subject: One time payment for Life Insurance

I am 35 years old. I would like to know if there is any LIC policy where i can invest only ONCE (not yearly once/twice/thrice/four times)? If i take policy worth 2 lakhs now, how much i will get after it gets matured and after how many years?

Similarly, can i do the same (one time policy payment) for my 5 year old daughter also? If so, whats the outcome (maturity period? money value?)?

Plan is closing by 22 Jan 09 and is very popular in NRI category. If you are looking for specific advice on this or product for your daughter, you need to provide more details. You can reach me at ********@*****.*** or 09910493350. I would be happy to help you in the matter. As regard, your daughther, it is not worth suggesting, without first setting a financial target of how much you want by what date.

Bima Bachat requires the policy holder to pay only one premium. The amount paid for the premium depends on the duration of the policy taken and life insurance is available till the date of maturity.

THEre are single premium policies which you can take - but from your question its clear you do not want life insurance but want to use this as instrument for saving .

i would suggest you should invest 60% in bond fund choose any , and 40% in equity for 5 year 10 year whatever period you choose.

this owuld be better than single premium policy - policy should be taken only for life cover or life cover+saving - they may not be good option for saving .

In a way life insurance company also invest in bond and scurities for return , giving you average 6 to 7% return with compunding on your investment in traditional plan.

but By directly investing in equity fund you can expect 12 to 16% over a period of 6 to 7 year plus. and bond will yield 6 to 7% a combination of both would be better in terms of liquidity also and return also.

some good bond fund
