Core Benefits of the Plan 

The following benefits can be availed under the LIC Varishtha Pension Bima Yojana:

  1. Pension Benefits

    The pension installment is payable to the pensioner during his lifetime.  The pensioner himself can choose the mode of payment. The minimum and maximum pension values are fixed, and a pensioner will receive a pension as per the category.

  2. Death Benefits

    The Policy Purchase Price is to be reimbursed to the beneficiary in the event of the death of the pensioner. This makes it a reliable product with a guaranteed return.

  3. Policy Loan

    The pensioner is eligible to apply for a loan under this policy provided the duration of three years has been completed from the date of policy initiation.  The maximum amount of loan that the pensioner can receive under this plan is 75% of the purchase price. The Corporation will then hold the policy in the form of security in order to facilitate the return of the loan and the interest levied upon it.

    Interest on the loan will accumulate according to the frequency of payment of pension under the policy.  The interest is taken from the pension installment at a predetermined rate.  The Corporation will decide the rate when issuing the loan.  The loan recovery will begin from the installment of the pension released by the Corporation immediately after the loan has been issued.

    In the event that the policyholder decides to surrender the policy or the LIC Varishtha Pension Bima Yojana Policybeing converted into a death policy, the Corporation has the right to claim the amount of the outstanding loan and any other interest from the policy monies.  

  4. Surrender Benefits

    The planis eligible for surrender after the duration of 15 years from the date of policy initiation.  The Surrender Value will be equivalent to the Purchase Price of the plan.  

    A special clause has been inserted into the policy. If the pensioner or his spouse needs financial assistance for treating a critical or a terminal disease, he is allowed to surrender the policy before completing 15 years of tenure.  In such an event, the Surrender Value of the plan becomes equivalent to 98% of the Purchase Price.
