Key Benefits Offered by LIC Jeevan Amar

LIC Jeevan Amar comes with a set of benefits that make it a top pick among policyholders. Have a look at these advantages before you proceed to buy this plan:

Death Benefit: Death benefit has to be paid when the death claim is made during the policy tenure. In the case of Limited and Regular premium payment, the Sum Assured on Death will be the highest of these three:

  • The absolute amount that has to be paid on the demise of the policyholder.
  • 105% of the total premium paid till the death of the policyholder.
  • A whopping 7 times the annual premium.

Single Premium Policy: In the case of the Single Premium policy, the Sum Assured on Death will be the highest of these two:

  • The total amount to be paid on the demise of the policyholder.
  • A whopping 125% of the total single premium.

Nothing extra will be charged on the aforementioned premiums as per LIC Jeevan Amar.

Death Benefit Option: The policyholder gets to decide the absolute amount assured to be paid on his demise as per the Death Benefit Option that he had selected while purchasing the policy:

  • Increasing Sum Assured: From the fifth policy year onward, the absolute amount assured increases by 10% of the basic sum assured. This continues till the 15th policy year, or the death of the policyholder, or till the end of the term, whichever is earlier. By this time, the absolute assured amount almost doubles up as compared to the basic sum assured. 
  • Level Sum Assured: In this case, the absolute amount assured remains equal to the basic sum assured throughout the policy term.

Mode of Installments: The policyholder can opt for the death benefit to be paid in multiple installments over five/ten/fifteen years to the nominee. He can select this option during his lifetime. The mode of installment payment can be monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, or yearly. 

Grace Period: LIC Jeevan Amar offers a grace period of 30 days from the date of payment. During these 30 days, the insured individual will keep enjoying all the policy benefits, and the policy shall remain valid. 

Revival: Even after the policy gets lapsed, in case the policyholder fails to pay the premium after the grace period, it is possible to revive the policy during the lifetime of the policyholder. But the revival has to be done within the first 5 years from the date of payment of the premium.
