  • In this plan, the premium needs to be paid till the child is 20 years old, but the policy continues till he is 25 years old. Thus the last 5 years, when the payout can be taken, the premium does not need to be paid, but the policy continues till its maturity, i.e. the child is 25 years old. Thus, this plan is a Limited Payment Policy.
  • The remaining Sum Assured along with vested Bonus, if any would be payable to him on the maturity of the policy as Maturity Benefit and the policy would terminate
  • The Sum Assured on Death has been defined as the higher of 10 times the Annualized Premium or 125% of the Sum Assured, whichever is higher, subject to a minimum of 105% of total premium paid till date.
