The New Saral Jeevan Bima policy will be sold by all the life insurance providers compulsorily from 1st January 2021. Further in this article, we have discussed the features and benefits of the Saral Jeevan Bima Yojana plan in detail. 

Pure Risk Plan- Benefits of Saral Jeevan Bima Yojana 

The Saral Jeevan Bima plan is a pure risk cover non-participating, non-linked term life insurance policy, which will provide insurance coverage as a sum assured amount to the beneficiary of the policy in the case of the unfortunate death of the life assured during the tenure of the policy. As a pure term policy, there will be no surrender value or maturity benefit offered under this plan. The policy will be accessible to people without any restriction on the place of residence, travel, educational qualifications, gender, or occupation.  

As there is a wide range of term insurance policies available in the market, choosing the right plan can be difficult for customers. To cater to the various requirements of the customers and to make Saral Jeevan Bima Yojana available by all life insurance companies, these guidelines are released by the IRDAI. 

In the past few years, the demand for pure life insurance plans has increased significantly. To meet the increasing demand for policy buyers, life insurance providers have introduced advanced insurance products with different features, options, riders, etc. 

Same as the standard health insurance product ‘Arogya Sanjeevani’, the Saral Jeevan Bima term life insurance plan will also be the same across all life insurers. It will have the same benefits, inclusion, exclusion, and features.  However, the claim settlement rate, prices, service level may vary from insurer to insurer.

Death Benefit & Waiting Period

In the event of the death of the life assured during policy tenure:

  • For limited premium payment policy or regular premium payment, the death benefit paid to the beneficiary of the plan will be higher of either 10 times of the annualized premium or 105% of the total premium paid as on the date of death or absolute amount of sum assured to be paid on death.

  • The waiting period of the plan will be of 45 days from the date of commencement of risk. The waiting period will not be applicable in case of policy revival. The policy will provide death coverage due to accidents only during the 45 days waiting period from the date of commencement of risk. If the life assured dies due to an accident during the waiting period, then an amount equal to 100% of the premium paid excluding the taxes will be paid to the beneficiary and no sum assured amount will be paid.  The policy will be canceled in case the life assured commits suicide within 12 months from the date of policy initiation. 

Rider Options 

Add-on accidental and disability benefit riders can also be availed under the policy. The riders are additional benefits offered by the policy to increase the coverage of the policy. The policyholder can add rider options to the base plan by paying an extra premium along with the basic premium of the policy. The rider sum assured will be the assured amount payable in case any specific event covered under the rider happens and opted by the policyholder.
