Under LIC Jeevan Labh, the sum assured on death is pre-decided by the life assured at the time of purchase depending on the potential needs of the policyholder’s family. Based on the sum assured of LIC Jeevan Labh, you are liable to pay a premium amount for a term of 10, 15, or 16 years. The premium paying term further depends on the policy term that you choose.
Death benefit, a combination of sum assured plus bonuses, is paid to the assigned beneficiaries only if the death of the policyholder occurs while the policy is in force.
The sum assured given is higher of:
7 times the annualized premium or
Basic sum assured
The sum assured on death under LIC’s Jeevan Labh policy cannot be less than 105% of the total premium payments paid till death of the life assured.
The death benefit can be received by the dependents of the life assured as a lump sum or income, depending on the option exercised by the policyholder.
The final amount payable to the assigned beneficiaries is inclusive of the sum assured on death and applicable bonuses in the form of a simple reversionary bonus or final additional bonus.
In case the premiums have not been duly paid for two consecutive years, all the benefits payable shall cease.
If premium payments were made for a minimum of two years, LIC Jeevan Labh shall subsist as a paid-up policy. Under a paid-up policy, the LIC Jeevan Labh sum assured on death reduces to an amount called the ‘Death Paid-Up Sum Assured’.
The sum assured on the maturity of LIC’s Jeevan Labh cover is the maturity benefit that the life assured is entitled to on surviving the entire duration of the policy. The sum assured on maturity is an amount equal to the basic sum assured at the time of policy inception.
The sum assured on maturity under LIC’s Jeevan Labh cover is paid along with additional bonuses as declared by LIC post its financial valuation.
Under the settlement option, LIC is liable to pay the sum assured on maturity in installments over 5 to 15 years.
Should you choose to discontinue premium payments after two years, the maturity benefit reduces to an amount equal to the ‘Maturity Paid-Up Sum Assured’.
However, the reduced sum is only payable to you if the initial two years’ premiums have been paid in full.
LIC offers discounts if you choose a sum assured of Rs. 5 lakhs and above. The rebates are subject to a fixed percentage of the basic sum assured.
