HDFC Click 2 Protect Plus – Should you Buy?
HDFC Click 2 Protect plus is very good plan which provide flexibility in terms of coverage with multiple options but as per me you must consider only life option of HDFC Click 2 Protect Plus.
It is not advisable to opt for any additional option like Income or Income plus option. In Income option insurance company will keep 90% of sum assured with them and distribute that in monthly installment without any additional interest. Instead of this simple life option will provide 100% amount which can be invested in Fixed Deposit or MIS to earn better income.
Similarly for Income plus option you have to pay additional premium you can use this additional premium amount for investment in other option to get better return.
So from my end it is YES for HDFC Click 2 Protect Plus but with Traditional LIFE option only.
