Loyalty addition is also considered during Special Surrender Value Calculation on surrender of the policy during the term, only if the full premium has been paid for at least for 5 years.
Optional Accidental Benefit Rider
Policyholders who are above 18 years of age have the option of availing LIC’s Accidental Benefit Rider along with this plan, which will provide the policyholder, an additional amount equal to the Basic Sum Assured in case of death caused due to an accident. The Sum Assured avialable in this rider will not exceed the amount of the Basic Sum Assured.
Date of Commencement of Risk
Under this plan, the risk will commence immediately from the date of inception of the policy. The date of commencement of risk also includes minor lives of the family i.e. children. This is an add-on perk offered by the plan that makes it more efficient and beneficial for a secure future of the family.
Payment of Premiums
Premium under this policy can be paid in intervals in the form of yearly, half-yearly, quarterly and monthly, where monthly premium can only be through NACH or salary deduction during the term of the policy. A grace period of one month but not less than 30 days is allowed for payment of yearly or half-yearly or quarterly premiums and 15 days for monthly premiums.
A revival period of 2 years is given to the assured from the date of first unpaid premium but before the date of maturity. This happens when the policy gets lapsed if the premium is not paid by the end of the grace period. The policy can be revived by paying all due premium along with interest at such rate as fixed by the Corporation at the time of the payment, subject to the submission of satisfactory evidence of continued insurability.
All the benefits under the policy will cease after the expiry of the grace period and nothing will be paid if the premiums have not been paid for at least 3 years. In case of premiums fully paid for 3 years and any subsequent premium is not duly paid, then the policy won’t be ceased but continued as a paid-up policy. Although, Auto Cover Period will be applicable under the plan.
Maturity and Risk cover details have been explained below, with the help of following policy details:
|Sum Assured (Rs.)||Rs. 3,00,000|
|Policy Term (Years)||20|
|Yearly Premium (Rs.)||10,472|
So, as per the above example, policyholder needs to pay the premium of Rs. 10,472 per year for 20 years and maturity will happen after completion of 20 years.
If the policyholder completes 20 years and pays all premium successfully, then Maturity will be as under:
|Maturity Year||Age at Maturity||Total Premium Paid||Maturity Amount (Approx.)|
|2037||50||2,08,860||Rs. 3,00,000+Loyalty Addition|
Auto Cover Period
The period from the due date of first unpaid premium (FUP) is “Auto Cover Period” under a paid-up policy. The duration of Auto Cover Period will be as follows:
Auto Cover Period for 6 months will be available, if at least 3 full years but less than 5 full years premiums are already paid and any consecutive premium is not timely paid.
Auto Cover Period for 2 years will be available, if at least 5 full years but less than 5 full years premiums are already paid and any consecutive premium is not timely paid.
If the premiums have been paid for 3 subsequent years continuously then the policyholder can surrender the policy anytime. LIC will pay the Surrender Value equal to higher of Guaranteed Surrender Value and Special Surrender Value after the surrender of the policy.
The Special Surrender Value is fixed by LIC periodically based on the former approval of IRDAI.
The Guaranteed Surrender Value paid at the time of policy term is the total premiums paid multiplied by the Guaranteed Surrender Value factor effective to total premiums paid under the policy.
For Example: For a policy tenure of 10 years and if the policy is surrendered in 9th or 10th of the policy year, the Guaranteed Surrender Value factor expressed in percentage works out to be 80.00%. Similarly, for a policy tenure of 15 years and if the policy is surrendered in 14th or 15th of the policy year surrendered, the Guaranteed Surrender Value factor expressed in percentage works out to be 80.00%.
These Guaranteed Surrender Value factors expressed as percentages are solely depending on the policy term and policy year in which the policy is surrendered.
