What is the idea of Insurance?
In the most bookish language we could say, Insurance is a financial wheel which is moving and rolling spreading the risk. By taking the risk from an individual and spreading it around the community, the individual is able to go about their business and personal lives without ramming into the financial loss.
In the simplest terms, Lets have a look at these two people. One’s name is Bob and other is Jack. Bob says to Jack that he will give him 10 dollars, but if he looses his cell phone, Jack has to buy him a new one. Here if Jack agrees to the deal, then that’s insurance right there!
Usually Insurance companies evaluate the risk and decide whether it is worth the gamble. That’s how they make money.
Here in the above example, Jack believes that Bob probably won’t loose his cell phone and hence he himself will be 10 dollars richer. Now if Jack finds 100 more such people who are willing to give him 10 dollars each to cover their cell phones, he will have 100 dollars.
If one those 100 people looses his/her cell phone, Jack has to pay 100 dollars as compensation, he will still be with 900 dollars. This insurance idea has been floating around since the ancient Chinese and the Babylonians spreading their shipping risks.
What is premium in insurance?
When there is insurance, there is a specific premium for it. In a nutshell, its a fixed amount which was decided while taking up the insurance policy. Premium is to be paid periodically (monthly/yearly) by the insured individual to maintain and keep their insurance coverage going on.
Premiums comes in different size and shape according to individual’s capacity to pay.
Regular Premium :
Regular Premium is exactly what the definition for the premium is. Its the amount paid to the insurance company periodically. Usually the payment is done monthly or yearly according to insured person’s comfort. Regular premium is what usually majority of people afford.
Single Premium policy :
In single premium policy, lump sum amount of premium is paid all at once, rather than keeping a record and paying it yearly, quarterly or monthly. The minimum and the maximum sum assured is already decided. It usually ranges between 1.1 times the single premium. In a way, single premium might be an easier option for some as all the premium is paid at once without worrying to pay the next one. While it might be a hard option for people who cannot afford a lot money to give on premium as single premium is way too high in comparison to regular premium.
