Things That Define Your Life's Maturity Cycle
Have you ever looked at human life with a telescope? No? There’s actually no need to. This is because the themes and patterns that make it up are so painstakingly obvious and common for everyone that a mere glance will reveal all secrets.
Despite this, people often fail to look and others and learn the lesson that protection is always better than cure. Yes, we are talking about insurance. A large percentage of the population (roughly 75%) still lives without being insured. *Source
The ramifications become more serious when we bring near and dear ones in the equation. Any loss to us is a loss to them and vice versa. Why then do we gamble our well-being so easily?
Today, let’s change this. Let’s reclaim our power to create a bright and happy future for ourselves and our family.
The crucial stages of life that you need to prepare for
When looked through the lens of insurance, there are 5 crucial stages/ areas of life that one needs to be prepared for. Any tension in any one of them is capable of creating a domino effect and destabilizing the others, too. Often, the consequences aren’t felt very strongly until it is too late.
With this precautionary snippet in mind, let’s delve into the stages and what each of them needs to thrive.
This is the building block for any good life. A good education equals good opportunities and the ability to create wealth and stability for oneself.
At this stage, one needs to plan for the overall educational needs of the child including primary, secondary, and tertiary education. Cumulatively, all of these expenses rack up to more than 1 crore.
Even if one were to compromise a little on the quality of primary and secondary education (since those can be aced even without tuitions or hefty expenses), a good college/ university is crucial for opening up shining employment opportunities.

Savings and wealth
Ideally, as soon as one leaves college, one needs to start saving up. In reality, though, life and career can take a while to settle. This is why young adults often times start saving up late, dreaming of the ‘big’ amounts they’ll be putting into their saving account.
However, saving plans don’t have to be grand. They just need to be consistent. This is what Aviva’s three saving plans ensure. As you work and save up, Aviva will be working with you to build your wealth.

Retirement is a crucial milestone that marks a big change in a person’s life. We heard a grandfather saying once ‘budaapa to kharche par hi niklta hai’ (‘old age is spent by spending money). We couldn’t agree more.
One doesn’t have the energy or the physical vitality to work and earn. Health problems can further complicate things. If one is able to conduct business and earn even after retiring from employment, then kudos! But, still, one needs to have a safety fund that one can dip in when retirement and old age get too hard.
Retirement plans come to the rescue then. They ensure that as you worked hard all your life, you will be compensated generously during this new phase of your life and can spend it relaxing and enjoying the finer things.
