The Postal Life insurance service was started in 1884 for the government employees and now provides insurance solutions for defence personnel and semi government employees as well. These policies offer the policyholder not only a lump sum upon the policy reaching maturity to secure their financial future post retirement but also offers death benefits to the nominee or beneficiary in the case of demise of the policyholder thus securing the family’s financial future as well

The Postal Life Insurance offers not only assured sums but also bonuses. These bonuses will accrue and be paid out either at maturity or to the beneficiary upon the demise of the policyholder.

There are a few rules when it comes to bonuses. For those plans that provide lump sum pay-outs on maturity or death, the bonuses accrued will be paid out given the policyholder does not take up a loan before the completion of 5 policy years. Loan facilities are applicable on policies upon the completion of 3 policy years and if any loans are taken out during this period, the policy is void of all bonuses and if loans are taken out after the completion of 5 years, bonuses are reduced accordingly

Postal Life Insurance offers the following policies for central government and semi government employees which are Whole Life Assurance (WLA), Convertible Whole Life Assurance (CWA), Endowment Assurance (EA), Anticipated Endowment Assurance (AEA) and Joint Life Assurance or Yugal Suraksha (YS). All the above policies offer bonuses

Below are the bonus rates for each Postal Life Insurance Policy:

  1. WLA Rates: Bonuses for WLA policy have been declared since the financial year of 1967 and has seen a steady improvement over the years which is testament to the quality and reliability of the policy. The WLA bonus rates started off at a mere 28 in the fiscal year ending March 1968 and since then has shown a steady increase year on year. Major jumps came in the fiscal year ending March 1978 when the bonus rate touched 40 and then again in March 1989 when the bonus rate was 80. The bonus rates for the WLA policy was hovering around the 95 mark from the years 1995 to 2002 and fell back down to 90 in 2006 and further down to 85 in 2010 and as of March 2012, the bonus rate for WLA stood at 85
  2. CWA Rates: These rates have also been published since March of 1968. The Bonus rate then stood at 28 and has seen a steady rise since then. Its peak fluctuations came in 1978 when the bonus rate touched 40 and again in 1986 when the bonus rate touched 67. It touched its highest in 1998 when the bonus rate reached 96 and from then it has dropped a slight amount to 85 in 2010 and has stayed at that rate since. As of 2012 the bonus rate for CWA policy was 85
  3. EA Rates: These rates have also been published since March 1968. Though the bonus rate may not stand as high as the WLA or CWA, it has shown a steady improvement since 1968. In 1968, the EA bonus rate stood at 22. Bonus rates reached the 70’s in 1991 and saw rates touch 77 in 2002. The rates however started declining since then and as of 2012 the rates stood at 58
  4. AEA Rates: The AEA bonus rates have been published by PLI since 1968 and has seen a steady climb over the years. The bonus rate reached its all-time high of 77 in 1999. Since then however, the rates have dropped and as of 2012 the bonus rates for AEA stood at 53
  5. YS Rates: The YS Rates have been published by PLI only since 1995 and is a much younger policy as compared to the others.

As of 2012 the bonus rates for YS stood at 58.

  • HDFC Life Life Insurance
    "Worst Life Insurance Company Ever"
    0.5 0.5/5 "Unacceptable"
    HDFC Life is one of the worst companies you would want to take your life insurance from. I am writing this review with my personal experience + experiences of some other users who purchased the policy. They are running a scam where about 1 yr after issuing your policy, they automatically cancel it, citing "non disclosure of pre-existing illness" as the reason. The same thing happend with me and many others. I have no such reported illness of any kind. And even if I had, why was the policy issued in the first place? Upon my request to provide an explanation or more detail about this 'illness', no respone was given to me, neither by HDFCLife nor by Policybazaar, through which I had purchased this policy. I was cheated of my one-year premium amount and my policy was lapsed. If you are at all serious about preserving your mental and financial well-being, do not go anywhere near any of these two companies. They are the biggest fraud in the life insurance market.

    LIC policy is safe and if you have a long term policy, it will be useful. If i go to their office, the response is fine. They have a good portal to know about the payment premium amount and existing policy details. I make the premium through online. I took the money back policy and it got matured already.
