Policy Surrender

  • Guaranteed Surrender Value: The guaranteed surrender value is equal to the percentage of the total premium payments. The percentage of total premium is calculated excluding the net of taxes, extra premiums paid and any extra rider premiums paid. This percentage depends upon the policy term selected by the policyholder and the policy year when the plan is being surrendered. 

Guaranteed surrender value also includes the surrender value of the simple revisionary bonuses, if any. Here the surrender value is equal to the vested bonuses multiplied by the related surrender value factors.  

  • Special Surrender Value: Special surrender value is paid out to the life insured upon surrender of the policy, only if the special surrender value is more than the guaranteed surrender value. It is calculated as the discounted value of the sum of the vested bonuses and the maturity paid-up sum assured. 

Paid-up Value

In case the life assured fails to pay the premium for at least 2 years of the policy and the plan is not revived then all the benefits offered by the policy are ceased after the completion of the grace period and no benefits will be offered to the policyholder.

If, two full-year policy premiums are dully paid and subsequent premiums are not dully paid then the policy will continue as a paid-up policy. Under the paid-up policy the sum assured offered as the death benefit is known as Death Paid-up Sum Assured.  The paid-up sum assured is equal to:
