How Reliance Nippon Life Future Income Plan Works?
Shyam is a 30 year old man and is a salaried employee with an organization. His wife, Radha and their 5 year old son Praful stay with him. Shyam wants Praful to receive the best education possible and grow up as a successful man. He also wants to save a lot of money when he is at the zenith of his career.
Shyam chooses to go with Reliance Future Income plan with a base assured sum of Rs.3 lakh and a term of 20 years. He pays a premium amount of Rs.28,302 for a period of 10 years.
Scenario 1 – In case Shyam survives till the maturity of the policy benefits:
- During the term of premium payment, simple reversionary bonus will accrue.
- Estimated 8% return of the simple reversionary bonus will be Rs.1,29,000.
- For a 20 year policy term, the IB factor is 10%. So, IB payable after the policy year ends at an estimated 8% return is going to be Rs.3,00,000 plus Rs.1,29,000 multiplied by 10%. This would amount to Rs.42,900
- When the policy term ends, Shyam will be getting a huge benefit of Rs.1,00,950.
Scenario 2 - In case there is an unfortunate event where Shyam expires at the eighth policy year:
|Assured Sum on death||Rs.3,00,000||Rs.3,00,000|
|Vested Reversionary Bonus||Rs.36,000||Rs.1,03,200|
|Total Death Benefit||Rs.3,41,400||Rs.4,18,680|
