What is Life Insurance?

Life Insurance is a contract between the person who takes an insurance policy and an insurance company. The contract provides for payment of a sum of money to the life assured or to his nominee on the happening of an event. The event may be either death or the person surviving a specified age.
A family is generally dependent for all its economic needs on the regular income brought by the breadwinner of the family. The uncertainty of deaths inherent in human life. As long as the breadwinner lives and the income is received steadily, that family is secure; but his sudden death leaves the family in a very difficult situation and sometimes in stark poverty. It is this uncertainty i.e. the risk, which gives rise to the necessity for some form of financial protection-loss arising from death. Insurance substitutes this uncertainty by certainty and also that of living to old age without visible means of support.
