What are ULIPs?

Unit Linked Insurance Plans (ULIPs) are insurance plans combined with the features of a mutual fund. The premiums paid by the policyholder are held in a corpus which is then invested in stocks and shares of different companies operating in the capital market. The total market value of the corpus invested divided by the number of securities purchased give the Net Asset Value (NAV) which is the price of one unit of the fund. The premium paid is invested at the prevailing NAV which changes every moment with the market trend. ULIPs promise good returns linked to the market and also insurance coverage. The basic features of ULIPs are as follows:

  • The premium paid is invested in a choice of funds offered by the company. Each fund represents different risk criteria. The basic funds offered are Equity Fund which has a high risk, Debt Fund which has low risk and Balanced Fund a mix of Equity and Debt Fund with a moderate risk. The returns are directly related to the risk profile of the fund.
  • Applicable charges are deducted from the premium paid for insurance coverage, administration charge, fund management charge, etc.
  • Insurance coverage depends on the amount of premium paid
  • The premiums are to be locked-in for 5 years after which partial withdrawals are allowed from the fund value
  • Switching option is available which enables the policyholder to switch his investment between funds
