LIC Jeevan Rakshak Plan is a profit sharing Endowment Plan. It is the simple endowment plan with death and maturity benefit which one can buy even for their 8 years old child. 

The insured needs to pay the premium for the whole term regularly. After reaching the maturity age, the policyholder gets the basic Sum Assured along with Loyalty Additions. In case of unfortunate demise of the policyholder during the term of the policy then the nominee receives the Sum assured and any Loyalty Additions. LIC’s Accident Benefit rider works as a fortifying force.
