Many people are still not much familiar with the term Insurance and how it works. The first thing to know when you are buying any type of insurance is that you understand all the terms and how the insurance is going to work when you will seek a claim.
Insurance is a way of protecting oneself from a financial crisis. It is basically an agreement between two entities where one entity, called the insurer, guarantees to provide compensation to the other entity, called the insured, in case of any financial need. And to be able to gain the guarantee, the insured has to pay a small charge, called a premium. After the agreement has been signed if there is any problem that falls under the terms and conditions of the agreement then the insurer pays the insured claimed money as per the agreement.
To understand this in a better way, think of an insurance company as a third party which takes some money as a premium from all the insured people, and fortunately, most insured people do not use the coverage from health and life insurance and give the money paid by these people as a claim to those insured people who meet any crisis and need money.
