Working of DHFL Pramerica Rakshak +
DHFL Pramerica Rakshak + is a plan which is simple to understand and implement, offering ease of use to individuals. Let us take the example of Miss Riya to understand how this plan works. Riya is a 40 year old marketing professional with two children, aged 6 and 8 years respectively. She opts for this DHFL Pramerica Child Plan to ensure that the education of her children isn’t compromised if something happens to her. She chooses a policy with a 15 year term, with the sum assured being Rs 20 lakhs. She pays an annual premium for 10 years towards this policy.
Let us consider the following scenarios to understand this plan.
Scenario 1: Miss Riya passes away 13 years after buying the policy, having paid all premiums due. In this case, her husband (nominee) will receive the death benefit, which is equivalent to the Death Sum Assured plus all annual accrued additions. This money can be used to provide for the education of her children, ensuring they have financial support even after her demise.
Scenario 2: The policy matures after 15 years, with Miss Riya continuing to stay healthy and active. In this case she will receive a maturity benefit which is equivalent to the product of the sum assured and the assured maturity multiple. All accrued annual additions will also be paid to Miss Riya.
Policyholders need to pay premiums only for the premium payment term, with an option to pay either annually, monthly or semi-annually. The minimum premium for this plan is Rs 12,000 per year, with the company providing a grace period of 30 days for delayed payments.
This plan doesn’t come with any riders.
