Let’s say, you’re investing in Jeevan Shikhar Policy (837). Suppose:
The Maturity Sum Assured you select is Rs. 5,00,000
The Policy Term is 15 Years
The Policy Purchase Year is 2016
Your present age is 28 Years.
Basis the information provided above, your Single Premium turns out to be Rs. 2,07,405 (with Statutory Taxes).
With the above details, there are two possibilities. In the first case, the policyholder survives for 15 years and receives the maturity amount. Alternatively, in the second case, the policyholder dies before 15 years, and the nominee gets death claim amounts.
Here, we’ve explained both the cases below:
Case 1: Maturity
If the policyholder survives 15 years, then the Maturity amount (i.e., the combined total of Maturity Sum Assured plus the Loyalty Additions) will be provided as mentioned below:
|Maturity Year||Age at Maturity||Maturity Sum Assured (Guaranteed)||Loyalty Addition (Variable)||Total Maturity|
Case 2 (Death before 15 Years)
10 times of single premium paid (excluding Service Tax) + Loyalty Addition is payable as death claim amount in case of death of the policyholder before completing 15 years or the maturity date of the policy. Loyalty Addition is provided on the policy only after 5 years from date of purchase.
Table: Suppose if Death happened in Year 2022 then nominee will get death claim amount as 2017500.
|Year of Death||Age at Death||10 Times of Single Premium
(Excluding Service Tax)
|Loyalty Addition (Variable)||Total Death Claim|
Suicide Clause: If the Life Assured, whether sane or insane, commits suicide within 12 months from the policy's risk commencement date, the policy will be considered void. In such cases, an amount higher than either 90% of the Single Premium paid or the Surrender Value will be payable. The policyholder's nominee or beneficiaries will not be eligible for any other claims under this policy. However, this clause will not be applicable if the Life Assured's age at the time of policy entry is below 8 years. In such instances, a refund of the Single Premium paid without interest will be provided.
