So, you need to be little watchful before investing your hard earned money in insurance policies.
Usually, insurance companies offer their policies or products in two categories, i.e. life’ insurance and general insurance.
Life or Health Insurance
Life insurance is one of the most reliable and fruitful policies that not only protects you and your family from the financial consequences of illness and fatality, but also offers healthy returns after maturity.

The general insurance protects the damages or losses of aforementioned assets, in case of an accident or calamity.
