Buying life insurance with wrong benefits: If you are not aware of the benefits and advantages of the policy you should not buy it.

If it is not offering you the desired benefits and advantages it is not the wise decision to buy the policy.
Buying insurance when you don't need it: Buying the insurance when you don't need is like blocking your money and investing without purpose. If you are in your late 50's at that time if you are buying a policy for 20 years or 30 years, it will be of no use as you will have no dependents at the age of 70 years or 80 years when you get your maturity amount. So make the right decision of buying the policy with your future projection and financial goals.
Buying policy with complex format: Many people buy the policy without understanding the complexities of the product and benefits. You invested in a product where your returns are linked with market trends, but actually you want a product which will give you assured returns. In that case, the policy is not going to help you to achieve your future goals. Buying policy with complex plans such as child policy, ULIP, endowment plan etc., are such plans offering you optimal benefits. These financial firms make more money by selling such complex products, which are based on optimal usage and understanding of the product to get the higher returns.
Buying expensive policies: At the time of buying a policy you trust the policy advisor most and even don't bother to compare the price and other benefits of the product with other available policies. You generally end up buying a policy an expensive policy offering you limited benefits. Therefore, it is important that you should buy a policy after comparing it with other similar kind of products available in the market.
Buying a new life insurance policy is not a rocket science or need a formula to get the higher returns on your investment, rather you need to play tactful while buying it. There are various policy products available in the market and it is a bit complex to make the choice.

You should always check the benefits and premium amount you going to invest. Also, check the policy on risk cover, other benefits, coverage in policy, medical and health benefits, policy premium and tenure and assured sum, etc. So to keep it simple it is necessary to understand the product better for higher coverage.
