Which Family Insurance Policy To Choose?

Have you also thought about taking out a family insurance policy?
Because I too was wondering in recent days what could be the most correct insurance policy for my family. I asked myself a series of questions that I would like to share with you. This is to see if I am thinking well as the choice is also closely related to age. Also relates to what risk you are most interested in protecting.

What insurance products exist

Not everyone knows what the main insurance products are. Most of them only know the Death policy (my heirs pay when I will not be there or an heir designated by me) and the life policy (you give me an annuity if I resist up to a certain age). In the following, I propose the major ones that provide for a particular premium deduction regime. It varies according to the composition of the risk covered and that you can learn more by reading the article dedicated to the deduction of insurance.

  1. Insurance in case of death

    A policy that guarantees a capital or an annuity in the event of death and which can be made (sometimes imposed) in order not to leave a house with a mortgage for children for example.

  2. Life insurance policy

    This is instead indicated to protect one’s economic standard of life once you have reached retirement and which allows you to access an income supplement after a minimum period of time established with the insurance company.

  3. Mixed policies

    This is a mixture of those seen above and on the one hand they can guarantee the future income flow, i.e. an annuity, and on the other a certain capital upon the occurrence of the insured event.

  4. Capitalization policies

    In this case we try to give greater dynamism to your investment which takes the form of a pre-established accumulation plan which corresponds to a pre-established period of periodic obligatory payments against a capital revalued according to a minimum interest rate guaranteed by the campaign insurance.

  5. Index-Linked policies

    We could always define them as an insurance policy but in reality, they represent a real financial instrument that guarantees after n years and the immediate payment of a sum of money of the minimum performance, ie a guaranteed minimum interest rate (usually rather low, depending on the historical moment that is occurring on the financial markets) plus an additional interest rate linked to the periodic performances on the markets (generally annual).

  6. Unit linked policies

    The purpose is that refer to in the previous point but yes the difference consists in the fact that in this case the sum pay initially is destine for multiple investments (generally in the purchase of different shares of list investment funds).

  7. Home and condominium policies

    New tax deduction on policies relating to coverage for risks deriving from natural disasters.

The risks to keep under control

The main risks from which we want to protect ourselves and whose aversion generally depends on age are mainly constitute by illness or disability, inability up to the case of death. The more we get on with age, the more the risk of one of these cases increases.

It can be done with the help of a supplementary pension fund that offers a subsidized tax treatment.

The products I can recommend in this case are life insurance policies or policies against the onset of serious illnesses and which offer social security coverage even for surgical interventions whose cost is often enormous.

Tax advantages on insurance policies

Fiscally then also in this case we find a tax treatment that is substantially in the tax deduction. It is to the extent of 19% of the insurance premiums paid up to a maximum of 1,291 euros per year. It means already having a net gain of 19% on the sums at the time of payment.
