ULIP stands for Unit Linked Insurance Plan. A United Linked Investment Plan (ULIP) is an instrument which combines the security provided by an insurance plan with the opportunities provided by an investment plan. It is a unique product which aims to integrate insurance as well as investment requirements. Its structure is similar to that of a mutual fund. This is how it works :

  • You pay a periodic premium to the insurance company
  • A part of the premium is used to provide you with an insurance cover
  • The remaining amount goes to equity or debt market
  • In the event of death, nominees are paid the sum assured
  • In case of maturity of the policy total value of the fund will be paid to the policy holder
