How the Plan Works
Miss Reena took LIC Marriage Endowment or Educational Annuity Plan when she was 35 years old. The policy term she opted for was 25 years and premium payment term she chose was 25 years. The sum assured that she opted for was Rs.1 lakh. She chose to pay the premium annually. She will have to pay Rs.3,727 annually towards the premium payment. She will get survival benefit and if she dies during the term, the death benefit will be offered and the premium will be waived off.
By the end of 25 years, she would've paid Rs.93,175, but she will get guaranteed benefit of Rs.1 lakh. Non-guaranteed benefit at 6% is Rs.69,500 and at 10% is Rs.1,82,500. Therefore at the end of the policy term, if the non-guaranteed benefit is offered at 6% she will get Rs.1, 69,500 and if it is 10% she will get Rs.2,82,500.
The premium can be paid yearly, half-yearly, quarterly or monthly or through salary deductions. The monthly payments are to be made through ECS or Direct Debit.
There are no riders available with this policy.
