Here’s why investing your first salary in insurance policies is a good idea.

Combat contingencies

Life is unpredictable. Unforeseen events catch us off-guard, leaving our loved ones in a flux and us. We can't predict or avoid such circumstances, but all we can do is build financial security that becomes a buffer against such untimely events. Therefore, don't wait for a higher pay cheque or a more senior position at your job, get life insurance right from the first month of your job and combat contingencies.

Time to invest

When it comes to investing your money, the earlier you start, the better it is. Life insurance policies give you higher returns or more extensive cover at low premiums. Endowment and money back policies are your best bet when it comes to investing in insurance policies. Not only investments but they also double up as your tax saving instruments. Therefore, invest your first salary in insurance policies that will give you highly lucrative returns.

A strong base for financial planning

Laying a strong base for anything helps you to build a sturdy structure. The same goes for investments. With insurance, you will lay a strong base for financial planning as you will have a lifelong security right from the beginning of your career. The best part of investing insurance right from the day of your first salary is that you don’t have to set aside a large part of your salary for premiums. Insurers usually offer you a higher coverage for very low premiums.

Earning the first pay cheque is an exciting feeling. It’s your hard-earned money, and you would want to splurge it on many things. While it is okay to do so try to also inculcate one important habit right from the beginning – financial planning. Start paying for your insurance from your first salary and continue it till your last pay cheque.
