    Dear Raj, imagine a situation, you purchased an umbrella for a rainy day. The rain never happend. Did you demand your money back against the price of umbrella from the shopkeeper?

    Just replace the umbrella in the above question with insurance and what ‘ll be your reply again?

    Hi Ashish, Thanks for your prompt reply.

    I did read somewhere that I will get tax deduction even for the premiums that I pay for my parents. Kindly clarify.

    Secondly, regarding insurance, kindly help me with possible options as to what shall I do? Also which products in the market are good/reliable?

    Hi Raj,

    Just because your parents does not have a life cover, you should not look at buying plans for them. In a few years they may not be earning (read retired) and would be dependent on their savings / you for financial support.

    If you pay their premiums you will not get tax benefit and also premium would be high. I suggest you should insure your self sufficiently (in case they are going to be dependent on you in future).

    Also, instead of life insurance, go for their mediclaim insurance. This will take care of their medical expenses in case of any medical problem in future.

    My parents do not have any life cover. So I thought it would be good if they have one. I am thinking of going for LIC Jeevan Saral for my mother at present, as the premium for this policy is fixed, irrespective of the age.
    Any other suggestions ? or advises ?
