    Birla Sun Life Vision LifeIncome Policy in Action

    Shanti, aged 35 years, decides to go for a Vision LifeIncome Policy. Through a limited premium payment term she needs to pay a premium of INR 20,954 for a period of 15 years regularly for a Sum Assured of INR 2,50,000.

    At maturity, Shanti would be entitled to receive INR 3,42,532 (guaranteed Survival Benefit including accrued bonuses), provided she has paid all premiums and not availed any loan on the policy. The Total Survival Benefit could be higher than the same, including other bonuses.

    In case Shanti passes away in post the premium payment term of the policy, her nominee would be liable to receive INR 3,30,032 (guaranteed Death Benefit) provided no loans have been availed on the policy earlier and all the premiums have been duly paid. Again, the total death benefit might be higher taking into consideration the rates that are announced by the Life Insurance Council.

    In this case, the policy ends 65 years from the date of inception, providing a life cover for Shanti till she turns a 100 years old.
