By continuously saving from now on, it will be very easy for you to create a big fund in the future so that you can fulfill your responsibilities and needs. Here we discuss some such saving schemes that are great for women also (Best saving schemes for women).

If you are an aggressive investor and are willing to invest your money, you can also consider investing in Equity Linked Savings Scheme (ELSS). This saving scheme helps in wealth creation as well as saving tax under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act. Let us tell you here, that ELSS has a lock-in period of 3 years. If you are expecting good returns, it is best to invest in this scheme for a maximum of 5 to 7 years.

5. Life and health insurance

Everyone thinks that it is more important to keep their loved ones safe in their absence. This is why you should not shy away from buying a life insurance policy, especially when you have children or dependent members in the family. The earlier you buy the policy, the less you will have to pay in terms of premium rate. You can also get help from a financial advisor for a better insurance policy. You can also get tax exemption on life insurance premiums.

Similarly, health insurance is also important for you and your family members. Health insurance is very useful in any medical emergency. You do not have to worry about the financial cost of treatment. A health insurance policy will take care of your medical expenses, keeping your savings intact. If you invest in it, you also save tax.
