Risk life insurance
The main reason for buying a life insurance policy is the risk associated with work and business, outdoor activities, or travel. The main current life insurance programs will provide coverage in following cases:
- citizens traveling abroad, traveling around the country;
- persons whose profession is associated with increased risk (compulsory insurance);
- mortgage lending.
Risk life insurance can be individual (personal, for family members - one or more), group (corporate). The indemnity period is from one day to a year. The policy cost is influenced by the set of insurance risks, duration of insurance and other factors.
Life insurance is a bank’s prerequisite for mortgage lending, which often puts the borrower before a choice, whether to get insured or be refused a loan. The mortgage is issued for a long period, during which various events can occur. If the borrower is unable to repay the loan due to illness or death, the bank will have to arrange a forced eviction of the family from the mortgage apartment or house. However, if the borrower’s life is insured, the loan amount will be repaid by the insurance company.
Insurance annuity is an umbrella term for all types of retirement and annuity insurance. It means that the policyholder pays a certain amount of money to the life insurance company at once or in installments, and then receives regular return for several years or for life. In simple words, insurance annuity is an insurance value paid in equal installments over a certain period or while a person is alive, that is, the insurance company undertakes to support the person who bought the annuity for his entire life.

Equity life insurance is a cumulative life insurance program for clients who want to take advantage of the rise in the stock market.
