Life insurance policies help provide coverage in the unfortunate event of the demise of the insured person. There are policies like term life insurance and life insurance with maturity returns. Term life insurances don’t provide any returns upon maturity but in the case insured person dies during the period policy is effective then the benefits are huge with respect to the premium paid. Maturity return policies provide lesser coverage upon death during policy period but provide returns on the premium paid at the maturity of the policy.

Health insurance provides coverage against medical expenses in case of any ailment during the policy period. With the increased cost of medical treatment a person without a proper health insurance can even suffer from bankruptcy in case of any severe ailment.
