The Life Insurance Corporation of India, also called LICI in short, is the oldest Life Insurer in the insurance sector which was formed by passing the Life Insurance Corporation Act by the Parliament of India on 1st September 1956.Since then LICI has been the sole life insurance provider in the market up until the year 2000 when as per the recommendations of the Malhotra Committee, the Government of India allowed private players and foreign players to enter the market. Even today, after more than half a century of experience in insurance industry, LICI enjoys a bulk market share through a huge base of trusted customers. LIC of India offers variety of insurance plans to its customers which are both traditional as well as unit linked insurance plans.

What are ULIPs?

Unit Linked Insurance Plans (ULIPs) are a product of adapting insurance plans to the market trend of high growth which lured customers to invest in capital markets instead of insurance. With ULIP , one can reap the dual benefit of high returns and insurance coverage. The premiums paid for a unit linked plan are collected in a corpus which is then invested in the market in a range of multiple securities each having its own growth. As on any day, the total market value of the invested corpus divided by the number of securities purchased gives per unit price of the fund called the Net Asset Value (NAV). It depicts the cost of one unit of the fund and the premiums paid are divided by the NAV to calculate the units availed.

  • The premium which the policyholder pays is invested in the fund which the policyholder chooses as per his risk appetite. The company usually has various funds each with high, low or medium risk profile
  • The entire amount of premium is not allocated to the fund. There are certain charges which are deducted from the premium paid. Such charges include fund administration charges, mortality charge, administrative charge, etc.
  • The amount of coverage which will be provided is expressed as a multiple of the amount of premium paid under the plan
  • The amount of premium paid is locked-in for a period of 5 years which is called the lock-in period. After 5 years the customer can freely withdraw money from the fund value through partial withdrawals
  • The policyholder may also switch the investments from one fund to other if he wants under the Switching Option.
