    3. Long-Term benefits
      Planning for long-term financial decisions such as your child’s marriage or education or retirement can be very tricky. You need to make sure the value of money saved does not decrease over the period due to inflation. This can be done by taking advantage of the compound interest concept that is used to calculate the interest rate on most savings plans. Here, the value of money gets adjusted to the inflation and other factors that might depreciate the present the sum of money. Furthermore, these schemes also have a lock-in period, which prevents you from withdrawing it, thereby allowing the full effect of compounding.

      The safety and security of your money is always a concern, especially when you hand it over to others for safe-keeping. People usually prefer having liquid money, but it must be understood that having the same does not guarantee safety. Moreover, as already discussed, the market risks are minimised, and this is not just in returns, but also sum invested. This also provides you with financial security as it can prove to be a safety net in case of any unwanted eventuality.
      The saving insurance schemes  serve as life insurance plan for you in order to mitigate the risk of unfortunate life events.

However, before buying a savings plan, you need to check the amount that your family will be provided as it may differ from one insurance company to another.

      Not everyone inherits a saving habit or develops a new one out of the blue. Developing a habit starts with practice and what better way than to pay regular premiums for your saving plans. This regular premium payment compels you to reduce your unwanted expenses and accordingly helps you to make the best use of the money at hand.

    Savings plans can be greatly beneficial and hassle-free. Moreover, there is no need to track the market regularly to check if your investment is making any profits or not.
