How does this Plan Work?
The Endowment Plus plan is a unit linked endowment policy by LIC that can be availed by customers who choose to make a single lump sum premium payment or premium payments on regular intervals of time. The premium payment mode and the amount of money the individual decides to pay as premium will determine the level of coverage he / she can avail. Benefits will be paid out either on the death of the policyholder, or upon maturity of the policy. In case of death of the Life Assured, the Fund Value (Basic Sum Assured) of the policyholder will be paid out to the nominee. In case the Life Assured survives until the policy has matured, maturity benefits can be claimed in the form of an amount equivalent to the policyholder's Fund Value.
