  1. Dear Upendra, What’s your source of income? Purchasing a term plan indicates that the buyer of the plan has an income & to protect his/her family’s financial future, S/he wants to protect the loss of income in case the term plan purchaser is no more.

    In your case, how you are going to prove that you do have a valid, reliable & continuous income source ‘ll determine the availability of online term plan to you.

    Normally a person can expect 10-15 times multiple of his/her annual income as term cover.



  2. Upendra – Life Insurance is to ensure that the income continues for dependents even after the insured is no more. Thus if you do not have a salary slip/IT return filed recently it may be difficult to get a life insurance especially since it means you have no ‘current income stream’ to really protect.

    You may possibly be running a business. If a return exists for the business that should be used.

    If you are attempting an entreprenurial venture with no current income stream you can show the recent personal IT return (even 2 -3 years old) and an outside valuation and projected incomes of your firm [I personally know a friend who took Religare insurance this way] – but since there is no ‘direct’ income stream to protect the premium is indeed higher.

    If you are chilling out or just on a sabbatical I am afraid there is no much luck with online plans as far as I know. LIC offline plans can be taken (I mean pure term plans) – And …dont fall for the insurance+investment crap as Life insurance someone will really pitch at this point.
