Working of DHFL Pramerica Rakshak Gold
Let us understand the working of DHFL Pramerica Rakshak Gold through the example of Mr. Joseph, a music teacher. Aged 40 years, Mr. Joseph is married with two kids. He works for a reputed music school and plans on securing the future of his children by investing in this plan. He chooses a policy with a term of 18 years, paying an annual premium for 10 years. The sum assured opted by him is Rs 15 lakh.
Let us consider the following scenarios.
Scenario 1: Mr. Joseph passes away 15 years after purchasing the plan. He paid all premiums on time, keeping the policy active. In this case, his nominee will receive an amount equivalent to the base sum assured plus the guaranteed addition. Apart from this, a monthly benefit equivalent to 2% of the base sum assured will be paid for 3 years. On maturity of the policy, an additional amount equivalent to the product of base sum assured and the guaranteed maturity multiple will also be paid.
Scenario 2: The policy matures at the end of 18 years, with Mr. Joseph staying healthy and active. In this case, he will receive a maturity benefit equivalent to the product of the base sum assured and guaranteed maturity multiple. In addition to this, all accrued annual additions will also be paid to Mr. Joseph.
