My parents are aged 52 and 55, Recently during their bank visit they bought the max life smart wealth income plan wherein they have to pay annual premiums for 6 years for guaranteed income for the nominee until the maturity also with an additional life cover of 11L,

Is this better than a term insurance or not considering they have one dependent ?

Dear OM

It is a personal choice but do not consider insurance as investment product so your parents can not create smart wealth because returns will not be able to beat inflation.

Ideally , they do not need insurance at age 55 because financial responsibilities are over .

However , for all general public insurance , I always recommended insurance as saving tool because of reasons below ;

1. It is a compulsory saving each year .

2. It gives tax rebate and returns are tax free .

3. It also offers life cover .

So if your parents are not disciplined and not money savvy then it is a prudent decision .

They can supplement It with term if they have liability of loan , child or any other liability .

Hope this clarifies
