How to Improve your score

Step #1

Purchase adequate term life insurance

  • Term life insurance costs very little and provides high insurance coverage. For a typical, well-insured individual, this cover should be between 10 to 20 times their annual income.
  • Ensure you increase your term life insurance cover anytime your liabilities increase. 

Step #2

Purchase adequate health insurance

  • Having adequate health insurance cover for you and your dependents ensures you don’t empty your savings and investments on hospitalisation expenses. 
  • Health insurance can seem expensive. But not having this costs far more
  • Don’t rely on company insurance alone. Purchase your own health insurance cover and increase it as necessary

Step #3

Understand investing & essential finances better

  • The fear of finances is common. Without an understanding of essential fundamentals, the topic of finances will always seem intimidating and complex. 
  • This lack of financial knowledge will also leave you vulnerable to financial mis-selling which is rampant in India. Millions of well-educated Indians fall prey to bad advise, invest under haste, and commit the same mistakes year after year.
