      Any premiums due which coincide or fall on a date after the death of the life insured will be waived off. The policy will continue to run. Moneyback and maturity benefit will be payable to the nominee when it is due. The policy will continue to participate in future bonuses.

    Moneyback Benefit:

    In the last four years of the policy, four moneybacks are guaranteed. Each moneyback is equal to 25% of the sum assured. The moneyback will be paid as per the following schedule:

Six months before the first moneyback payment, the company will send a communication to the policyholder which will contain information regarding the schedule of the moneyback payments and the option to defer or discount the payment. The policyholder can then choose from these options, select a time to defer the payment and submit it to the company at least 3 months ahead of the moneyback payment date.

    Bonus Option:

    This plan comes with three bonus options:

    1. Paid in Cash – As and when the company declares a bonus, the cash bonus will be paid out every year to the policyholder.
    2. Premium Offset – When the company declares a bonus, it can be used to offset future premiums that are payable by the policyholder.
    3. Paid Up Additions – The bonus can be used to purchase Paid Up Additions (PUA) which will increase the living and death benefits of the policy. It is payable in full upon maturity. PUAs earn further bonuses which increase the policy value. If you surrender your policy, the surrender value of the PUA is payable.

    Bonus options will be converted to PUA automatically in case of the death of the life insured or assignment of the policy to any institution.

    Withdrawal Option on PUA:

    The policyholder is given the option of withdrawing the surrender value of the PUA. The remainder will continue to participate in bonuses. The policyholder can withdraw a minimum of Rs.5,000. The maximum amount is subject to the maximum cash value of the PUA. The option to withdraw the PUA is not allowed in case of Reduced Paid Up Policies and post the death of the life insured.

    Terminal Bonus:

    This bonus is paid only once upon before the surrender of maturity of the policy, provided that the policy has been in force for a minimum of 5 years.

    Customization of the product:

    Policyholders are free to choose their term between 13 years and 21 years. They can plan for the child’s needs according to the current age of the child. There are also two premium payment options available so that policyholders can make the payments according to their convenience and affordability.
