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.
Premiums paid does not include either taxes or any type of extra charges due to rider premiums.
If the policy has a surrender value based on the terms and conditions by LIC priodically, then the loan will be provided at the time of policy term. The interest rate is decided by the Corporation only.
