It, therefore, acts as a safeguard for the customers' investments if and when a financial crisis arises.
A customer can purchase LIC SamriddhiPlus Plan for up to 3 months from the date of initiation of the plan. A customer has the option to pay the premium either as a fixed, single lump sum, or over a period of 5 years. The level of cover can be selected based upon the age of a customer, the premium payment mode, and the premium level that he is willing to pay.
In case a customer chooses to pay a single lump sum amount in the form of a premium towards the LIC Samriddhi Plus Policy, he may do so, or he may pay yearly, half-yearly, quarterly, or monthly (through ECS mode only) premiums as well. If a customer is paying yearly, half-yearly, or quarterly premiums, he is provided a grace period of 30 days. 15 days is the grace period in case of monthly payments.
Minimum Age At Entry – 8 (age at last birthday)
Maximum Age At Entry – 65 (age nearer birthday)
Policy Term - 10 years
Minimum premium - 5 years premium paying policies
The following are the key benefits of LIC Samriddhi Plus Policy:
LIC Samriddhi Plus policy ensures its holders the benefits of the highest NAV recorded daily during the initial 100 policy months. This indicates that on the completion of the term by the policy, the amount that will be payable to the customer will be calculated, keeping in mind the highest NAV recorded during the first 100 months covered by the policy.
In the event that the highest NAV is recorded on the policy maturity date, that will be payable to the customer. LIC will take into consideration the units that are present in the policyholder's fund before the application of this guarantee. A duration of 100 months from the beginning of the policy is taken as the time to be considered for this guarantee.
In the event of the death of a policyholder during the term of the policy, the nominee of the LIC SamriddhiPlus Plan will receive the higher value of the Sum Assured. However, if, during the last two years from the date of death, a partial withdrawal has been made, the Sum Assured will be reduced accordingly. (This holds for the Basic Plan.)
If a policyholder of LIC SamriddhiPlus Policy survives to the date of maturity of the policy, the payout equals the Policy holder's Fund Value applicable on that date. The fund of the policyholder at the policy term end will be based on the higher of these two:
If a policyholder is between 18 and 60, he may choose to invoke the accident benefit option. This will be the same as the amount of life cover. This will be a minimum of Rs. 25, 000 and a maximum of Rs. 50 lakh. In the event that there is a death of a policyholder due to an accident, the nominee of the LIC SamriddhiPlus Plan can claim an added sum equivalent to Accident Benefit Sum Assured.
The LIC SamriddhiPlus Policy allows a 0% to 100% investment in corporate debt, short–term investments, and liquid equity shares. It is hence classified as a medium-risk type of fund.
A Discontinuance Charge is levied if a policyholder surrenders a policy in a period of 5 years from the date of policy initiation. This charge is deducted from the Fund Value, and the remainder of the fund is then monetized. This amount is then credited to the DBF or the Discontinued Policy Fund. There are no charges levied after this.
The remainder of the Discontinued Policy becomes payable to the nominee immediately, in the event of the death of a policyholder post the surrender date but within the completion of the five years.
Suppose the LIC Samriddhi Plus Plan is surrendered after five years from the date of initiation of the policy. In that case, the entire Fund Value becomes payable to the policyholder as of the date of surrender.
The plan is a unit-linked plan. It offers the highest NAV obtained by the fund associated with it in the first 100 months or the NAV on maturity. It also guarantees a minimum NAV of Rs. 10.
The best part of the plan is that the investor needs to pay the premiums only for a max of 5 years.
Premium can be paid monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or even annually. There are no applicable top-up premiums.
