Policy Details

  • Grace Period: The policy gives policyholders thirty days to pay all due premiums The policy will acquire a “Discontinued” status if payment is not made within the applicable timeframe.

  • Policy Termination or Surrender Benefit: If the policy is surrendered before the completion of 5 years, then the insurance cover ceases, and the Fund Value will be transferred to the Discontinued Policy Fund. Proceeds from this will be payable only after the fifth policy anniversary. In case of the death of the Life Assured during this period, only the accumulated fund value will be payable to the nominee. After completing five policy years, if it is surrendered, then there are no Surrender/Discontinuance Charges, the Fund Value is paid to the policyholder, and the policy will terminate immediately. If the policy is not reinstated within the revival period, the policy is terminated. Termination of the policy also occurs on payment of the Death Benefit. The policy will also automatically terminate if at any time the Fund Value falls below or become equal to one year’s regular premium because of poor market performance. In that case, the Fund Value is paid to the policyholder.

If the policyholder does not wish to continue with the policy, then he or she can cancel the policy.
