In the same line, Insurance Samadhan recommends three insurance products for health insurance portfolio :

  1. First, buy a whole life insurance which would remain with you for the full life and keep family protected till you live. So whole life is comparable to the breakfast of balanced diet.
  2. The endowment is comparable to the lunch, which you need to buy for your midlife financial responsibilities. It is related to consumption hence can be taken for a shorter term and in different variety like money back, limited payment endowment. These products must be linked to each responsibility. You take lunch for taste, presentation and hunger. So decide for the endowment as per your need.
  3. Term insurance is comparable to Dinner. You take dinner to ensure undisturbed sleep, in the same way, you buy Term Insurance at the rate of pauper so that your family get undisturbed sleep.
