      I had taken two insurance policies from LIC. One is a ULIP and the other was Jeevan Bhima. I took a Rs.50,000 policy in 1995 of 20 year tenure which recently matured and I got Rs.1.20 Lakhs which was double. It has a bonus of 5% and tax exemption benefits. I pay the premiums by ECS quarterly. I did have a tough time claiming one policy at maturity as they made me run from pillar to post.

      I have a moneyback and ULIP policy with LIC. LIC is a very dependable organisation when it comes to taking an insurance policy. The moneyback policy has premiums of Rs.6000 paid half yearly and once in 5 years Rs.10,000 is paid out. The ULIP policy has a premium of Rs.2000 per year, although it was a policy of 10 years, the market shot up high around the third year and I got Rs.50,000 at a shot.
