Policy Termination or Surrender Benefit:

The customer may terminate his or her investment before maturity at any time during the plan year. If the policy is surrendered within the first five years from the start of the plan, then the fund value is transferred to what is called as the Discontinued Fund.

The fund value is payable on the first working day of the sixth policy year. If the policy is surrendered after completing five years from the start of the policy, the fund value is then payable immediately to the policyholder. This fund value is subject to deductions based on any partial withdrawals that may have been made.
