LIC Endowment Assurance Policy

LIC Endowment Assurance Policy plan serves a dual purpose as it provides both life coverage and a sum assured endowment upon maturity of the policy.

Key Exclusions of the Plan

Exclusion is when the insurer becomes exempt from providing any or all benefits related to the agreed plan. In the case of endowment assurance policy, the leading cause of exclusion is suicide committed by the policyholder.

Committing suicide by the insured exempts the corporation from providing the agreed death benefits to the beneficiaries.  

  • If the nominee commits suicide within 12 months of the policy commencement date, the corporation will be liable to pay only 80% of the premiums paid till the date of death. One cannot claim anything more than the amount stated above.

  • In case of revival of the policy, if suicide is committed within 12 months of revival, the insurer will pay higher of two values available, one, 80% of the premiums paid till date, and the other being the surrender amount available on the date of death.

The insurer will not pay any bonus or added benefit when the insured has committed suicide. One cannot even claim the death benefit over the suicide of the life assured.
