Working of DHFL Pramerica Future Idols Gold +
DHFL Pramerica Future Idols Gold + has been designed keeping the interest of policyholders in mind, offering ease of use and simplicity to investors. Let us consider the example of Mr. Pradeep, a talent scout to understand the working of this DHFL Pramerica Life Policy. Pradeep, aged 35 years is married with one kid, who is 4 years old. In a bid to secure the financial future of his child, Pradeep invests in DHFL Pramerica Future Idols Gold +, choosing a policy with a 15 year term. The sum assured opted by him is Rs 15 lakhs, with the premium amounting to Rs 1 lakh annually (approximate).
He opts to pay an annual premium for 10 years, setting aside a portion of his salary for the same. Let us consider the following scenarios to see how this policy functions.
Scenario 1: Pradeep passes away 12 years after purchasing the policy. In such case, his nominee (wife) will receive a death benefit which is equivalent to the higher of 10 times the annualised premium or 1.25 times the base sum assured.
Scenario 2: The policy matures after 15 years, with Pradeep and his family staying hale and hearty. In this case, he will receive a maturity benefit equivalent to 1.25 times the sum assured plus all bonuses accrued during this period.
