Benefits of LIC New Anand Plan
Listed below are the top benefits of this plan offered by LIC.
1. Death Benefit:
If the policyholder, however, dies during the period of the policy, then he/she will likely receive the final additional bonus and simple reversionary bonuses along with the sum assured on death.
For those who don’t know, the amount of sum assured on death is either;
125% of basic sum assured or 7X annualized premium
*The maximum of the above will be considered
On the other hand, if the policyholder dies after the end of the period of the policy, the family shall receive the basic sum assured.
Let’s consider an example to properly understand it:
A software engineer, Ajay who is 29 years old purchased “LIC Jeevan Anand” with a policy term of 15 years while the basic sum assured (BSA) is 1000000. In addition, he even included other options like Accidental rider, Term Rider, and Maturity Settlement.
But if he unfortunately dies, then
|Basic Sum Assured:||1000000|
|Death Sum Assured:||1250000|
2. Maturity Benefit:
A policyholder is likely to get a maturity benefit which is given to him/her at the end/maturity of the policy only if they had paid all premiums on time. The major highlight of the policy is that it allows you to receive the so-called “Maturity Benefit” in installments for 5, 10, or 15 years.
|Maturity Benefit = Basic Sum Assured + Final additional & simple reversionary bonuses|
The policyholder, alongside, will likely receive a final additional bonus and a simple reversionary bonus that would be an additional bonus.
Explain the Working of LIC New Jeevan Anand Plan
Let us understand this plan with the help of an example:
Mr. Paul who is 40 years old decided to buy the LIC New Jeevan Anand Plan with a policy term of 20 years alongside the basic sum assured of Rs. 10 Lakhs (excluding any rider benefit).
Here’s the calculated premium for the First & Second Years
|Mode||Premium||Premium for 1st year (4.5% GST)||Premium for 2nd year (2.25% GST)|
If Mr. Paul survives till the maturity date of the policy, then he shall receive the maturity benefit. Let’s discuss the amount of maturity benefit:
|Basic Sum Assured: 1000000||Age: 40||Term: 20|
|Death Sum Assured: 1250000||AD & DB Sum Assured: 0||Term Rider Sum Assured: 0|
Death Sum Assured is higher by 125% of Basic Sum assured (1250000) or 7 times of Annualized Premium (424214). So, Death Sum Assured or Sum Assured on Death, in this case, will be 1250000.
|Sum Assured||Bonus(approx.)||FAB (approx.)||Total (approx.)|
Normal Life Cover is equal to Death Sum Assured + Accumulated Bonus + FAB + Term Rider Sum Assured (If opted).
Accidental Life Cover is equal to Death Sum Assured + Accumulated Bonus + FAB + Basic Sum Assured + Term Rider Sum Assured (If opted).
If we assume death occurs in the year 2033, the total paid premium will be 727224, and the Normal and Accidental Life Covers will be 1701000 and 1701000, accordingly.
Is There Anything Excluded Under LIC New Jeevan Anand?
Each insurance policy comes with its own set of inclusions and exclusions and the same goes with LIC New Jeevan Anand. Although many inclusions have already been covered under the features/benefits section, there’s one exclusion under the policy, i.e., none other than “Suicide”.
But at the same time, it is excluded only if it falls under the following circumstances:
If the policyholder committed suicide within just 1 year (12 months) of buying the policy, then the corporation is entitled to pay the claim. But if he/she has made the premium payment on time, then the company shall pay 80% of the total premiums provided.
Coming to another scenario, if he/she commits suicide within 12 months from the date of revival, then the corporation will not be paying you anything. However, if he/she already had the payment, then the family members will likely get 80% of the premiums paid.
Note: Taxes, extra premiums, and any rider premium(s) other than the Term Assurance rider, if any, are not included in the above-mentioned premiums.
