HDFC Life Sampoorn Nivesh Classic Life is a unit linked insurance plan which provides dual benefits. One, the plan yields attractive returns linked to the capital market. Two, the plan also provides life insurance coverage for protection against premature death. The policyholder has the choice to choose from three premium payment options. The premiums can be paid for the entire term, for a limited term or at once during plan commencement.
