However, if you have found out better investment and savings avenues or due to some other reasons you want to terminate your insurance cover, then you can do it without significant consequences, here’s how you can do it.
You can close your LIC Jeevan Labh policy in the following ways:
If you stop paying due premiums to keep your policy in force, the policy lapses. There is, however, a grace period during which you can start making the payment again to revive your policy. If you still decide to make no further payments, the policy shall be terminated without benefits. Please note that that the insurer is not liable to pay any refund or death/maturity amount under such circumstances.
LIC’s Jeevan Labh policy comes with a free-look period of 15 days, during which a policyholder can read through the terms and conditions of the policy. If he/she finds his/herself dissatisfied with any aspect of the policy, can return this policy. LIC will refund the premium amount paid on accepting the request, subject to certain prorated risk deductions.
LIC Jeevan Labh allows policyholders to surrender their life insurance coverage at any point during the policy tenure. The only condition to surrendering a policy is that 2 full years’ premiums have to be duly paid. Once a policyholder decides to surrender LIC’s Jeevan Labh, he/she is eligible to receive an amount equal to the guaranteed surrender value or special surrender value, based on whichever amount is higher.
To surrender a policy, one is required to submit the following documents:
Original policy document
Proof of age
With LIC’s Jeevan Labh, if one has paid two full years' premiums and stopped any subsequent premium payments, it converts to a paid-up policy. Under paid-up policies, one is entitled to death and maturity benefits, however lower than the original sum assured at inception.
Of the four ways discussed above, surrendering the policy or converting it to a paid-up policy offers the maximum benefits. Therefore, you might want to continue to pay the premiums for a while longer and receive some amount instead of losing all benefits.
