*Please note that the quotes shown will be from our partners

LIC is the largest insurance company in India, and one of the most trusted insurance providers in the country. Providing a wide array of insurance plans to citizens, the LIC Premium Endowment Plan 830 is one of their most popular insurance products. Here is a review of the overall features of this plan, for the objective of gaining an insight as to what its main benefits are:

The LIC Limited Premium Endowment Plan 830

The LIC Endowment Plan 830 provides a combined benefit of savings and protection. Having such a plan helps both, in financially safeguarding the family in the event of the policyholder’s untimely demise before maturity of the plan, as also providing a lump sum amount on maturity of the plan if the policyholder survives. In addition to this, it also provides a bonus, which is declared on this policy on a yearly basis.

This plan is a limited period plan, as the name itself indicates. What this means is that in comparison to the policy term, the payment of premiums is limited to a particular time frame. This is one of the main features of this plan.

So if it is a 12-year policy, the policyholder would have to pay premiums for either 8 or 9 years at the most, as this timeline is the limited period within which, premiums payments have to be made.

The maturity amount of this policy is payable either on the demise of the policyholder or at the end of the term of the policy – whichever is earlier.

Entry Age

An individual would have to have completed 18 years of age to be eligible for this plan. The maximum entry age however, is affixed as per the term of the policy as well as the premium payment term, as explained in the table below:

Benefits

This plan provides two primary benefits – a death benefit and maturity benefit.

  • In the case of the death benefit, if the policyholder should meet an unexpected demise within the policy term, then their nominee will receive the ‘Sum assured on death’, a simple reversionary bonus and a final additional bonus if any. The sum assured on death equals 125% of the basic sum assured, or 10 times the annualised premium or 105% of all premiums. The death benefit would not be less than 105% of all the premiums paid as on the date of the policyholder’s death. 
  • As far as the maturity benefit is concerned, if the policyholder should survive the term of the policy, then they will receive a sum assured on maturity, a bonus and a final additional bonus, if any. The sum assured on the maturity of the plan is equal to the basic sum assured. 
  • In addition to these 2 main benefits, loan facilities are also available to policyholders, after the payment of premiums for at least 2 years. The maximum loan amount which is granted will be 80% for paid-up policies and 90% for policies in force.

Examples of Benefits of this policy:

Akash, aged 30 years has taken up the Limited Premium Endowment Plan 830 for a premium paying term of 9 years and a policy term of 21 years. He selects a basic sum assured of Rs.3,00,000. He would have to therefore pay a premium of Rs.24,320  per year, for a period of 9 years which is the premium paying term.

  • Scenario 1: Death during the policy 

If Akash dies during the term of the policy, his nominee will receive the death sum assured, which is 125% of the basic sum assured (i.e. 125% of Rs.3,00,000) as well as the accrued bonus. After the nominee receives this amount, the policy will be terminated. 

  • Scenario 2: Accidental Death during the policy 

Should Akash die due to an accident during the policy term, the nominee will receive the death sum assured (which is 125% of Rs.3,00,000), the additional accident sum assured (Rs.3,00,000) as well as the accrued bonus. The policy will be terminated after this.

  • Scenario 3: Survival of Policyholder till maturity 

If Akash survives till the end of the term of the policy, he will receive the basic sum assured, which is Rs.3,00,000 as well as the accrued bonuses and the policy will be terminated thereafter.
