How This Plan Works

Let us elucidate this plan through the following example.

Mr.Ahuja, 55, wishes to provide for his retirement and opts for the . He will be eligible for the policy as the maximum entry age is 65 years. He can choose a policy term of 10 to 20 years. This is because the minimum policy term is 10 years and the maximum age at maturity / vesting / exit is 75 years.

After consulting with his financial advisor, he estimates he can pay premiums comfortably every month. The minimum payable every month is Rs.2,000 i.e. Rs.24,000 per year. He opts for this for a term of 20 years.

Suppose, Mr. Ahuja dies after 5 years. He will receive an assured benefit of 101% of Rs.24,000 * 5 = Rs.1,21,000 + applicable bonuses. At a minimum level of 105%, it works out to Rs.1,26,000 + applicable bonuses.

If Mr. Ahuja survives till policy maturity i.e. for the next 20 years, he will receive 101% of Rs.24,000*20 = Rs.4,84,000 + applicable bonuses or the vesting amount + applicable bonuses. whichever is higher.

Conversely, if the sum assured is fixed or decided upon when taking the policy, then the premium payable is based on this.
