Benefits of LIC New Janaraksha Policy

  3. Maturity Benefit

    The sum assured, along with all the bonuses accumulated up to the maturity date of the LIC New Janaraksha Policy, is paid to the insured or his nominee as a lump sum amount on survival to the policy term-end.

  4. Supplementary/Extra Benefit

    These are extra benefits that a policyholder can add to his basic plan upon payment of an additional amount as a premium.

  7. Corporation's Surrender Policy 

    LIC usually pays a special surrender value to the holders of the LIC New Janaraksha Policy.  This value is either equal to or more than the GSV or the Guaranteed Surrender Value.  The benefit paid to a policyholder reflects the discounted value of the claim amount that is reduced. This is supposed to be paid on the policyholder’s death or at maturity.  

    This value depends upon two factors, the policy duration and the time period for which the premiums have been paid, at the date of the surrender.
