Benefits on maturity or earlier death:
On surviving till the end of the term of the policy or earlier death, Sum Assured together with the Guaranteed Additions and Loyalty Additions, if any, become payable. 20% of such benefit amount shall be paid in a lump sum and the balance amount shall be utilized to provide an annuity on the life of handicapped dependant. A number of annuity options are available under the plan.
These are the optional benefits that can be added to your basic plan for extra protection/option. An additional premium is required to be paid for these benefits.
Buying a life insurance contract is a long-term commitment. However, surrender value is available under the plan on earlier termination of the contract.
Guaranteed Surrender Value:
The policy may be surrendered after it has been in force for 3 years or more. The guaranteed surrender value is 30% of the basic premiums paid excluding the first year’s premium. In case of a single premium policy the guaranteed surrender value is 90% of the single premium paid excluding any extra premium.
Corporation’s policy on surrenders:
In practice, the Corporation will pay a Special Surrender Value – which is either equal to or more than the Guaranteed Surrender Value. The benefit payable on surrender reflects the discounted value of the reduced claim amount that would be payable on death or at maturity. This value will depend on the duration for which premiums have been paid and the policy duration at the date of surrender. In some circumstances, in case of early termination of the policy, the surrender value payable may be less than the total premium paid.
The Corporation reviews the surrender value payable under its plans from time to time depending on the economic environment, experience and other factors.
