Sahara Samriddhi is a money back plan where the funds are provided back to the holder at definite times so that he or she can satisfy the various financial requirements at different points in his or her life.
In case of Sahara Sampann, the policyholder receives an additional benefit after a 5 year period whereby his or her risk cover is increased. This plan also offers tax exemptions and safety returns.
With Sahara Nidhi, the policyholders are able to save sufficient funds that can be used in the future for investment purposes or repaying loans. With Sahara Umang, the policyholders can be sure of being provided fiscal protection in case of death as long as the plan is in operation. In case the policyholder is alive when the policy ends he or she is paid a lump sum.
The Sahara Umang plan is for proposers with sufficient funds for investment but a greater need to protect the family. Sahara Ankur is primarily a child plan that is unit linked and invests in different funds to provide the policyholder good value for his or her money. The policyholders can themselves choose where they would want to put their money based on their risk profile.
Sahara Utkarsh is a unit linked plan as well but includes risk coverage facilities too. The plan covers all the basic requirements of a life insurance policy and enables the customers to earn more as and when the policy becomes older.
With Sahara Shikhar, the insured can see the worth of their savings going up over a specified period of time - they can also choose their investment plans as per their risk profile and investment aims and policies. The choices are allowed to vary at different points in the policy's term period.
Sahara Sugam, a unit linked plan, offers an unprecedented combination of returns that are linked to the market as well as coverage against risks. Sahara Amar Jeevan is a pension plan that follows the principle of deferred annuity. It enables the policyholder to save smaller sums that can be used for meeting requirements later on in life.
