Birla Sun Life Vision Star Policy in Action

Sunil, aged 40 years, decides to go for a Vision Star Policy. Through a limited premium payment term he needs to pay a premium of INR 22,392 for a period of 10 years regularly for a Sum Assured of INR 2,50,000.

Opting for a biannual payout, Sunil would be receiving INR 50,000 in the 15th year (5 years post the premium payment term), with the same amount again in the 17th year and in the 19th and 20th year, he would be receiving a payment of INR 75,000 each. The accrued bonuses and terminal bonus (if any) would be payable in the 21st year and could be anywhere from INR 40,000 to INR 2,40,000 depending on the prevailing rates.

In case Sunil passes away at any time during the term of the policy, his nominee would be liable to receive INR 2,50,000 (guaranteed Death Benefit) provided no loans have been availed on the policy earlier and all the premiums till the date of his demise have been duly paid. The assured payouts still continue and accrued bonuses are paid at maturity of the policy.

The policy tenure here is 21 years.
