I was diagnosed with disc prolapse in L4 and L5 recently. Following the diagnosis of my injury, I was on complete bed rest for 6 weeks. The prolapse was so bad that I couldn’t even move for the first three days. Based on the severity of my injury, my orthopedist recommended complete bed rest along with pain medication for 6 weeks. After 6 weeks, I initiated alternative therapies like decompression, ultrasound etc. Because I am athletic, the rehab journey was smooth and pretty fast.

However, this episode made me realise that regardless of how fit I am, I cannot completely avoid injuries. Injuries have a strong psychological as well as financial impact. It can disturb financial goals in the absence of an alternate guaranteed source of income. I also realised how expensive the treatment can be and how important it is to have a strong financial back up for the future.

I started looking out for investment options that would give me financial stability even in critical times. I came across the ICICI Pru Guaranteed Income for Tomorrow plan. This plan is ideal as it provides guaranteed income. I can receive this income as a one-time payment or month-on-month as a regular income. If I choose the regular income option, I can receive the money from the next year of purchasing the policy itself. I can also avail of a loan against this policy in case of a financial emergency. Additionally, the plan also provides financial protection for my loved ones with a life insurance cover. The plan covers COVID-19 life claims and helps me save tax too.

With the right financial preparation, I can win the battle against any uncertain situation coming my way!
