What does every ordinary citizen today know about the domestic insurance market? He - is, he - the young and working companies on him offer something to their customers. On this knowledge of insurance, unfortunately, ends. But what, besides mandatory insurance on the car, which we buy ourselves and the policy that the responsible and law-abiding employers buy for us, can offer the domestic insurance market?
Conclude life insurance agreements, can only insurance companies that have the appropriate license. There are seven such companies in Kazakhstan, whose financial activities are under strict control of the National Bank of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
The main feature of life insurance is insurance coverage 24 hours a day anywhere in the world. And if you buy a life insurance policy, you get an additional opportunity to save up for an unforeseen event in your life. The agreement can be concluded for a period of 7 years and more. To the policy you can purchase additional options from an accident that entailed:
• leaving from life as a result of an accident, providing an additional insurance payment of 100% of the sum insured;
• temporary disability;
• injury to an additional Insured.
Financial damage from these troubles will be reimbursed.
The products of accumulative life insurance do not just guarantee the receipt of a cash payment in the event of an insured event, but also ensure the increase in compensation.
Why can universal life insurance be used as a financial tool?
The main type of protection covers the occurrence of two insurance events: survival of the insured person before the end of the insurance period and departure from the life of the insured during the period of the insurance coverage. And if the client as a result of an accident was injured or was in hospital, if there are additional options in his agreement, he can fully expect financial help from the company while he adjusts his health.
At the end of the insurance period, the policyholder receives the accumulated amount specified in the agreement, plus dividends accrued from participation in the company's profits, starting from the third year of insurance. In this case, the possible payments for the injuries received and hospitalization, the total amount does not decrease.
If it happened that the insured person did not survive until the end of the insurance period as a result of an accident or illness, the heir is paid an insurance amount with additional investment income, provided that it was formed at the time of the payment.
Thus, the insurance payment occurs in any case.
Universal life insurance is a financial instrument, simultaneously combining the possibility of life insurance and capital accumulation.
What are the advantages of universal life insurance to other financial instruments?
Universal life insurance (ULI) provides insurance protection for the time of accumulation, which no other financial instrument can provide.
NCM programs also provide an opportunity to receive more income than the one that was agreed upon at the conclusion of the agreement, i.e. guaranteed investment income. Based on the results of the financial year, the company distributes part of the profits to customers who have universal life insurance agreements when making profits. This is the difference from the bank deposit, where interest income will not be raised under any conditions.
Another important advantage of the ULI is cheap loans. The fact is that on the security of its policy the client can take a loan in the company.
Thus, the ULI programs combine the benefits of insurance and conventional investment products.
Today, the average able-bodied Kazakh can quite afford to go to the movies several times a month, some harmless purchases for 500-2000 tenge a day. If you sum up such expenses in a year, you can see what really serious money he throws out of his income. We will multiply them by 15 years of insurance. So, these are the means that almost all of us could save and invest in our future or the future of children. Time flies very quickly, at 30, 40 and 50 years we also want to live, not denying ourselves anything. And now there is the opportunity to go to it day after day.
