Policy Details of Canara HSBC Smart Junior Plan

  • Surrender Options: You can surrender the Canara HSBC Smart Junior Plan at any time, but it is best to avoid this unless absolutely necessary.

    • The Surrender Value is the higher of: Guaranteed Surrender Value (GSV) or Special Surrender Value (SSV).

    • The policy must have at least 2 years of consecutive premium payments to qualify for these values.

  • Policy Loan: A loan against your Canara HSBC Smart Junior Policy can be availed, subject to terms and conditions, to meet liquidity needs.

  • Grace Period: You have 30 days for yearly payments and 15 days for monthly payments to make overdue premium payments. If you do not pay within the grace period during the first two years, the policy will lapse, and coverage ends.

  • Revival: You can request revival within 5 years from the first unpaid premium due date. The revival requires paying all overdue premiums with applicable interest. Once revived, all benefits, including bonuses, will be reinstated as if the policy never lapsed.

  • Free Look Period: You have 15 days (30 days if acquired through distance marketing) to review the policy terms after receiving the policy document. If you cancel within this period, you will get a refund minus the proportionate risk premium, stamp duty, and any medical costs.

How Does the Canara HSBC Smart Junior Plan Work?

Step 1: Set Your Coverage Amount

Decide how much you need to cover your child's education costs. This becomes your "sum assured." The payouts and maturity benefits depend on this amount.

Step 2: Choose the Policy Term

Set the policy length to match your child's key education milestones. For example, if your child is currently 6 years old, you might choose a 16-year term to start payouts when they turn 18.

Step 3: Select Premium Payment Details

Choose how long you will make premium payments and how often (e.g., annually or monthly). Consider your income and savings plans.

Note: Your premium amount is determined by factors like your age, sum assured, policy term, and payment frequency.

Suicide Exclusion

The Canara HSBC Smart Junior Plan excludes full death benefit payout in case of suicide within the first year of the policy or its revival. Here is a breakdown of the exclusion:

  • Within 1 year of policy commencement: If the life insured commits suicide during the first year after the policy starts, the nominee will receive either 80% of the total premiums paid till death or the surrender value available on the date of death, whichever is higher.

  • Within 1 year of policy revival: The same exclusion applies if the suicide happens within one year from the date the policy was revived.

There is no exclusion for suicide after one year from the policy commencement or revival date. In such cases, the full death benefit is payable to the nominee.

#The lumpsum benefit is calculated if policyholder invested ₹10000 monthly for 10 years in the fund with a policy term of 20 years. This Point To Point past performance data of last 10 years has been used to illustrate a scenario for the customers benefit. It is assumed that the past 10 years returns would have also been delivered in last 20 years. This is not guaranteed and not in anyway indicative of what the customer may actually get 20 years from now. The investment is subject to market risk and the risk is borne by the policyholder.
