Introduction to LIC New Jeevan Shanti

LIC New Jeevan Shanti is the only deferred annuity scheme among all LIC pension plans. What this means is that policyholders start receiving the annuities after a certain duration called the ‘deferment period’.

  1. During the deferment period

    Only the risk cover remains active and no pension is payable. This is particularly helpful for people who are still working and have some years before they choose to retire.

  2. At the end of the deferment period

    Income will start flowing monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, or yearly as per the chosen mode. These will continue throughout the lifetime of the policyholder, effectively creating an income source for themselves and their families after retirement.

Important Features of LIC New Jeevan Shanti

  • The plan requires a one-time investment by way of a single premium amount or purchase price.

  • You can add your spouses, children, or parents under the plan’s joint-life cover option.

  • No annuity payments are made during the deferment period.

  • An additional benefit amount accrues every month during the deferment period. It is payable along with the death benefit.

  • LIC New Jeevan Shanti offers flexibility in the death benefit payout. You can choose either a lump sum amount or installments for 5, 10, or 15 years.

  • LIC Jeevan Shanti can also be bought to benefit a disabled person who is directly dependent on you. If you die, the death benefit can be used to purchase an immediate annuity from LIC, which will create an instant income source for the dependent to fall on.

  • A higher purchase price (above Rs.5 Lakhs) will earn you extra annuity rates.

  • The plan does not offer any maturity benefit.

LIC New Jeevan Shanti Plan Benefits

The plan offers a host of benefits to the buyer. These benefit amounts can be calculated using the LIC New Jeevan Shanti calculator.

  1. Death Benefit

    The life insurance cover with LIC New Jeevan Shanti ensures that the family has enough funds to support themselves, if and when the life assured dies. Some points to note -

    • The coverage continues during as well as after the deferment period.

    • The death benefit will be equal to whichever of the following is the highest -

      1. 105% of the purchase price

      2. Purchase Price + total additional benefit minus total amount of annuity payable till death

    • In the case of a single life cover, once the annuitant dies and the death benefit is paid out by LIC, all annuities will end.

    • In the case of joint-life cover, the death benefit is only paid out after the death of both individuals. If only one death has occurred, annuity payments will continue as is but no death benefit is applicable.

  2. Regular Income / Annuity Payouts

    If you align the end of the deferment period with your retirement age, you can start receiving a regular income out of LIC New Jeevan Shanti as soon as your old income ends. These payments will continue for as long as you live. Even in the case of joint-life cover, this LIC pension plan continues to pay a pension till the last surviving person dies.

    You should use the LIC New Jeevan Shanti calculator to see how much monthly income you will receive in the future based on your investment. This will help you decide if the plan suffices for your future needs or if you need to save/invest more in it.

  3. Annuitisation of Death Benefit

    With LIC New Jeevan Shanti, you can not only create a regular income stream for yourself but also for the family after your demise. If you choose this option, the nominee has to use the death benefit amount to buy an immediate annuity LIC pension plan after your death. Once this investment is done, LIC will start crediting monthly income to the nominee’s account till he/she lives.

Eligibility Criteria of LIC New Jeevan Shanti

You can enjoy all the benefits discussed above only if the following conditions are met.
