Mr. Babu has a wife and child, and is the only earning member of the family. He decides that he needs to secure his family against financial insecurity in the event of his death, and opts for this plan.
Mr. Babu chooses a 30 year policy term with a sum assured of Rs.20,00,000. The fixed policy paying term of 11 years means that Mr. Babu’s annualized premium payable is Rs.24,400.
If Mr. Babu dies during the policy term, his family will be paid the death benefit, which is the higher of:
- 10 times the annualized premium: 10 x Rs.24,400 = Rs.2,44,000.
- 105% of total premiums paid: 105% of (11 x Rs.24,400) = Rs.2,81,820.
- Guaranteed Maturity Sum Assured: 11 x 24,400 = 2,68,400.
- Guaranteed Death Sum Assured (100% of Sum Assured for non-accidental death / 150% of Sum Assured for accidental death): Rs.20,00,000 for non-accidental death / Rs.30,00,000 for accidental death.
But if Mr. Babu survives till the end of the policy term and reaches the maturity date, he will be paid 11 times the annualized premium: 11 x 24,400 = 2,68,400.
