To celebrate the "Diamond Jubilee Year", the LIC of India launched a brand new life insurance product- Bima Diamond Plan. The plan was available for purchase only from 19th September 2016 to 31st August 2017.

LIC Bima Diamond is a Money Back life insurance policy that offers a combination of protection and savings. This plan comes with the triple benefits of enhanced protection, money-back, and auto cover features. The plan best suits those individuals who are looking for a short-term investment that provides guaranteed returns in periodic installments.

LIC Bima Diamond is a withdrawn plan which means the plan is no longer available for sale. However, those individuals who have bought it earlier will enjoy its benefits.

Key Features of LIC Bima Diamond

  • Enhanced Protection: The life insurance plan offers an extended cover period for half of the policy tenure after the completion of the policy tenure.

  • Money-Back: A certain amount of sum is paid out as the survival benefits on the completion of every 4th policy year.

  • Auto Cover Feature:  If a premium is not duly paid for 5 full policy years, an auto cover period of 2 years is available.

What are the Benefits of LIC Bima Diamond

Below mentioned are the benefits offered by LIC Bima Diamond:

  • Death Benefit

    If the policyholder dies during the first 5 years of the policy, a sum assured amount as a death benefit is payable to the nominee. 

    If the death occurs after the completion of 5 policy years, but before the completion of policy tenure or before the maturity date of the policy, then the sum assured amount along with the loyalty addition is payable to the nominee of the policy.

  • Survival Benefit

    If the policyholder survives till the end of the specific time period and pays all due premiums, then a fixed percentage of the basic sum assured is paid out which is known as survival benefits. The fixed percentage for various policy terms is as below:

    Policy tenure % of survival benefit
    For the policy tenure of 16 years 15 % of the basic sum assured is paid at the end of the 4th, 8th, and 12th policy year.
    For the policy tenure of 20 years 15 % of the basic sum assured at the end of the 4th, 8th, 12th, and 16th policy year.
    For the policy tenure of 24 years 12% of the basic sum-assured after the 4th, 8th, 12th, 16th, and 20th policy year.
  • Maturity Benefit

    In case the policyholder survives till the end of the policy tenure, then a sum assured on maturity along with the loyalty addition is payable to the policyholder. The sum assured on maturity is 55% of the basic sum assured for a policy tenure of 16 years and 40% of the basic sum assured for a policy tenure of 20 and 24 years.

  • Loyalty Addition

    The policy provides profit in form of loyalty addition if the insured person has duly paid all the premiums till the date of demise or maturity. Loyalty addition is either paid on the demise of the policyholder after the completion of the 5th policy year or on the maturity of the policy.

    • LIC Accidental Death Benefit and Disability Rider
