LIC Jeevan Chhaya policy is an endowment plan. This is one of the plans of LIC that protects the policyholder and his nominees against death until the maturity of the plan. One of the special features of the Jeevan Chhaya plan by the Life Insurance Corporation of India is that it not only guarantees the Sum Assured at the time of death of the policyholder but also ensures that one-fourth of that will be payable to the policyholder at the end of each of the last four years regardless of whether the policyholder survives or not.Read more

There are numerous benefits that a policyholder can avail of under this plan, e.g., death/maturity benefits, supplementary/extra benefits, etc.
The premiums are payable yearly, half-yearly, quarterly, or monthly or might also be deducted from the policyholder's salary.
The eligibility to invest under the LIC Jeevan Chhaya Plan is as follows:
The minimum Sum assured is Rs. 50000.
There is no limit to the maximum Sum assured.
The minimum age at entry is 18 years.
The maximum age at entry is 45 years (40 years if the age proof is non-standard.)
The maximum age of maturity is 65 years.
The minimum term is 18 years.
The maximum term is 25 years.
The following are the key benefits offered under the Jeevan Chhaya plan by the Life Insurance Corporation of India:
In each of the last four years of the policy term, the policyholder is guaranteed an amount that will be one-fourth of the Sum assured.
In the event of either survival of the policyholder to the end of the term of the LIC Jeevan Chhaya Policy or his death, all the bonuses accumulated during the policy term will be payable.
As is customary with the Corporation, the Sum Assured will be released immediately on the policyholder's death, provided all the documentation is in order. The policyholders' beneficiaries must keep all policy-related documents handy when they approach the Corporation to claim.
These are the benefits that can be added to the LIC Jeevan Chhaya Plan with an additional premium payment. The supplementary benefits are as follows:
Even though buying a life insurance policy is a long-term commitment, a policyholder may find that he is unsatisfied with the terms and conditions of the LIC Jeevan Chhaya Policy or unable to pay the premiums required to keep the policy in full force. In such circumstances, he has the option to surrender the LIC policy.
Once the policy has completed a period of 3 years, it can be surrendered. The value payable is fixed at 30% of the basic premiums paid apart from the first year's premium and the fixed benefit paid by the policyholder.
The Corporation follows the practice of paying a Special Surrender Value under the LIC Jeevan Chhaya Plan. This might be equal to or more than the guaranteed surrender value. The benefit available to the policyholder under this is the discounted value of the claim amount that has been further reduced, which would have been payable at the death of the policyholder or his survival to maturity of the policy. This value depends on the total number of premiums that have been paid and the duration at which the surrender value is being calculated. If there is a premature policy termination, the value of the total paid premiums may exceed the Surrender Value payable to the policyholder.
LIC Jeevan Chhaya is an endowment plan. The best part about this plan is that it provides double benefits to the policyholder. The Sum Assured is payable to the nominee in the event of the death policyholder, and 25% of the Sum Assured is also returned in the last four years of the policy. This amount is paid back to the policyholder if he survives to the end of the policy term or his nominee in the event of his death. Premiums may be paid on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis.
The following documents are required if a nominee of the policyholder of the LIC Jeevan Chhaya wishes to claim the policy in the event of the death of the policyholder:
Original policy document
Death certificate of the policyholder
The following documents are required if a policyholder survives to the end of the term of the policy.
Original policy document
Address proof of policyholder
Proof of age of the policyholder

If a policyholder commits suicide, he will automatically be excluded from the LIC Jeevan Chhaya Plan. The following conditions must be kept in mind:
80% of the total premiums paid will be payable to the policyholder's nominee if the policyholder (whether stable or unstable) should commit suicide within a year from the risk commencement, under the policy, provided the policy has not lapsed. The Corporation will not adhere to any other claims made under this policy apart from this.
If a policyholder (whether stable or unstable) is to commit suicide within 12 months from the policy revival date, an amount that is higher than 80% of the total premiums paid till the date of death or the surrender value available as of the day of death will be payable, provided the policy has not lapsed. The Corporation will not entertain any other claims made under this policy apart from this.
