How Does LIC New Jeevan Anand Work?

To understand the working of LIC New Jeevan Anand, let us take the example of Mr Arora. Mr Arora bought LIC New Jeevan Anand Plan and selected the sum assured of INR 10 Lakhs and the policy term of 20 years.

Now, as per the selected sum assured and policy tenure, LIC will determine the premium of the plan. Under this plan, the insured has to pay premiums for the entire duration of the policy term.

If Mr Arora dies during the policy tenure, the company will pay him the Death Benefit which will be equal to the sum assured on Death+Vested Bonus (till the date of death)+Any Final Additional Bonus.

The Sum Assured on Death will be higher than 125% of the Basic Sum Assured or 10 times the annual premiums paid subject to a minimum of 105% of total premiums paid till death.

In case of survival of the insured till the end of the plan, a maturity benefit would be provided to the insured person.

Maturity benefit=Sum assured+bonus (amount received throughout the policy term)+any final addition bonus (if declared).

However, if Mr Arora dies (even after the policy term), the nominee will get an additional sum assured amount as the death benefit.

LIC New Jeevan Anand Riders

The plan offers four different types of riders that will help you to enhance your protection. However, out of four, you may select up to three riders from the following options:

  • Accident Benefit Rider:This rider benefit can be obtained at any time throughout the policy term of the basic term plan, as long as the premium payment and rider terms are both 5 years. If this rider benefit is selected, the sum insured as the accidental benefit will be paid in a lump sum in the event of accidental death.
  • New Term Assurance Rider:Under this rider, an amount equal to the sum assured will be paid if the policyholder dies within the policy period. This rider can only be purchased at the time of inception of the policy.
