Introduction/Overview

With the Star Union Dai-ichi Assured Income Plan, policyholders receive long-term protection as well as financial security. The guaranteed annual income regularly received by the policyholders, or their beneficiaries is tax-free and the overall benefits received contribute to the peace of mind for the policyholders.

Key Features

  • Premium payment is flexible, with a choice to pay via monthly, quarterly, half-yearly or yearly modes, as per the convenience of the policyholder.
  • Survival and Maturity Benefits are available in this plan, contributing to the financial protection and wealth creation for the policyholder.
  • When the person whose life is assured passes away, the Death Benefit is payable immediately to his or her beneficiaries. The beneficiaries continue to receive financial protection in the form of annual payouts until the end of the policy term.
  • The policyholder and his family receive annual income after the premium payment period for the length of the policy term that had been chosen at the inception of the policy.

Benefits

  • The policy offers a Guaranteed Annual Payout.  The annual payout otherwise known as Survival Benefit, as chosen by the policyholder starts from the end of the premium payment term or deferment period, if there is any.
  • Guaranteed Maturity Benefit is paid if the person whose life is insured is alive when the policy matures, provided all premium payment have been made. In case of the 10 year premium payment term, the Guaranteed Maturity Benefit is ten times the annualized premium while it is fifteen times the annualized premium for the 15 year premium payment term.
  • If the person insured passes away, the nominee receives the Death Benefit, which is the Death Sum Assured plus Additional Annual Payouts and the scheduled annual payouts. The beneficiary may opt to receive all future outstanding annual payouts in the form of a lump sum benefit.
  • Tax benefits are available on the premium paid and Death and Maturity Benefits as per sections 80(C) and 10 (10D) of the Income Tax Act.

Policy Details

Grace Period: There is a limited timeframe of 30 days from the due date of the unpaid premium to pay all dues, without interest. This timeframe is reduced to 15 days if payments are being done on a monthly basis.

Lapse: Failure to pay two years of due premiums within the Grace Period will result in the policy lapsing. The life cover will cease and no benefits are payable once the policy has lapsed.

Policy Termination or Surrender Benefit: This policy acquires Surrender Value on the completion of two full policy years with the provision that all premiums were paid. Termination occurs on the earliest of the following: on payment of the Surrender Benefit, or Death Benefit (and payment of the last Annual Payout), or Maturity Benefit. It is also terminated on being lapsed by non-payment of two years of premiums and not being revived within the Revival Period.

Free Look Period: A limited free look period of 15 days from the date of receiving policy documents is allowed to review the policy. This timeframe is extended to thirty days if the policy was sold via distance marketing mode.

Additional Features or Riders

  • The revival of a lapsed policy is possible if the policyholder submits a written request for reinstatement within a timeframe of two years from the date of the first unpaid premium.

Exclusions

  • The term insurance cover is void if the person insured, whether sane or insane at the time, commits suicide within one year from the start of the policy cover. The company will refund only 80% of the premiums received. The same is applicable if the person insured commits suicide within one year from the date of last reinstatement. In this case, if the policy is still in force then the company will refund the higher of the Surrender Value on the date of death or 80% of the premiums paid until the date of death.

Documents Required

The policyholder has to fill up an ‘Application form’ with identity proof, bank account proof, address proof and a recent photograph. Select cases may require income proof.
