As it is a Participating plan, you will receive Simple Reversionary Bonus and Final Additions as and when declared by LIC.
Accidental Death and Disability Benefit Rider can be added by the policyholder as an option. For this, the policyholder has to pay the extra cost along with the usual premium.
Death Benefit: Upon the death of the policyholder, this benefit is provided.
If all the regular premiums for the decided term are paid with no balance premium, the Death benefit is calculated by adding following amounts: Death Benefit=Sum Assured on death + Vested simple Reversionary Bonus + Final
Additional Bonus: The Sum Assured on death is relative to the Life Risk rates provided above. The final Death Benefit will never be less than 105% of all the premiums paid if the tenure of the policy is higher than 10 years. The premium paid during the decided tenure does not include any extra tax. The only extra amount needs to be paid is for Rider Premium, if applicable.
Maturity Benefit: Upon completing the tenure of the policy, maturity benefit is provided to the survivor. The key here is all the premiums should be paid for the entire term. The Maturity benefit is calculated as follows:
Maturity Benefit=Sum Assured on maturity + Vested simple Reversionary Bonus + Final Additional Bonus. Here the Sum Assured on maturity is nothing but the amount deducted after calculating money back amount. This lump sum amount is paid on the maturity of the policy.
Tax Benefit: Similar to other policy schemes, the LIC Jeevan Tarun Policy (Plan No: 934) provides benefits in tax. The premiums are tax exempted Under the Section 80 C of Income Tax Act. The maturity amount provided at the end of Policy tenure is also tax-free. So you need not pay any tax on that amount. The maturity sum decided at the end will be given as it is. It is assured under the section 10 D.
Loan Facility: You can take a loan against the Jeevan Tarun policy in need. But for this, the policy should be more than 3 months old or over the free look period. The amount of the loan is decided based on the age of the policyholder when the policy was started.
Policy Surrender: There is provision to surrender the policy in need. If the policy is surrendered within one year of policy opening, then the policyholder will get up to 70% of single premium paid. After completing one year, if the holder surrenders the policy, then he will get up to 90% returns on the single premium paid. There are many calculators available online to calculate the estimate of surrender policy. If the policy is surrendered after completing five years, the holder is also eligible for Loyalty Bonus along with the premium returns. This can be calculated using online calculators.
This policy can be brought by the parents or grandparents of the child. It will be beneficial for your child for their education or you can also take the benefit for their marriages.
