Working of Future Generali Assured Money Back Plan
Future Generali Assured Money Back Plan works on multiple levels to provide financial security and life cover to individuals. Let us look at the example of Mr. Joe, a radio producer to see how it works. Joe purchases this plan on his 35th birthday, opting for a sum assured of Rs 10 lakhs and a policy term of 20 years. He is now expected to pay premiums for 10 years. He pays an annual premium towards maintaining this policy, expecting financial security for himself and his family.
Consider the following scenarios to understand the benefits involved.
Scenario 1: Joe pays all his premiums for 10 years, post which he will receive 10% of the sum assured, or Rs 1 lakh every year. This payment will be made to him for the next 9 years. On maturity of the policy, i.e. 10 years after all premiums are paid, he will receive an additional 110% of the sum assured, i.e. Rs 11 lakhs, thereby earning a total of Rs 20 lakhs over this period.
Scenario 2: Joe pays an annual premium for 9 years, but passes away in the 10th year. In this case, his nominee (wife) will receive a death benefit which is equivalent to the highest of the following:
- 1.1 times the sum assured
- 105% of total premiums paid by Joe
- 10 times the annualised premium paid by Joe before his death
The policy will terminate once this amount is paid.
The table below highlights the different options when it comes to paying the premium for Future Generali Assured Money Back Plan.
|Policy Term||Premium Payment Term||Minimum Annualised Premium||Premium Payment Frequency|
