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 three 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 three 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 or Maturity Benefit. It is also terminated on being lapsed by non-payment of three 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.

Inclusions

  • A policy loan is available on the condition that the policy has attained Surrender Value. The loan amount is subject to an amount of not more than 80% of the Surrender Value.

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.
