Insurance is a very important word. It is a kind of assurance that losses can be mitigated and if we are ready to make some payment those losses can be covered in the future. Insurance can be primarily divided into two broad categories i.e., Non-life insurance and Life Insurance. Any insurance that is not related to insuring life can be termed as General (non-life insurance). Some examples are Property Insurance, Motor Insurance, Car Insurance, Health Insurance etc. The word life insurance is self explanatory wherein the life of an individual is covered and the family is paid premium on the death of the member.
