What is the Difference between the Two Plans?

As compared to any other traditional plan, LIC Jeevan Adhar offers very high return. However, the 65 years of age restriction to receive guaranteed bonus lower the return of the plan as the person can live beyond this age. On the other hand in Jeevan Vishwas the bonus rates are higher as compared to any traditional plan but lower than Jeevan Anand. 

 Initially Jeevan Adhar was introduced keeping in mind to provide benefits to the physically challenged people, but the rules were very stringent. The norms for disability were under rule of 11A of Income Tax Act. Which ultimately did not cater the needs of physically challenged dependents, whose degree of handicap was lower. To bridge this gap, LIC came up with Jeevan Vishwas plan that empowers the guardian to provide benefits to their disabled dependents whose degree of disability does not match the norms in Jeevan Adhar.
