On Insurance Awareness Day, a call to action to keep financial stress at bay

The pandemic has heightened the need for long-term financial planning.


Mumbai: The world has been through some of the most unprecedented times over the last one year. Most of us have encountered life-altering disruptions in our day-to-day lives and many have had to suffer loss of jobs, income and even loved ones. In such unpredictable times if there’s anything that can guarantee some form of assured security, then policy insurance will definitely be one of them.

And what better day than the Insurance Awareness Day (28 June) to remind us about the critical role of insurance in protecting oneself and our families from the uncertainties of life. The pandemic has only heightened the need for long-term financial planning.

On this day, some of India's leading life insurers endeavour to create greater awareness about policy insurance amongst consumers with a slew of campaigns and creatives that prompt one to take the time out to reflect on our priorities and get a policy on our life, home and/ or vehicle to secure one’s and one’s family from the tough times the may future hold.
