Break-up of the ICICI PMJJBY Premium

As per the earlier directives issued by the Ministry of Finance, the yearly premium for the Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana was constant at a sum of Rs 330 for a term of one year beginning from 01 June until 31 May regardless of the date of request of the customer into the scheme.

  • The premium of a sum of Rs 86 will be payable for March, April and May.

The premium sum will be on the premise of the requested date of accountholder into this scheme and not as per the debit date from the account. For instance, in the case when the account holder places a request for the Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana in 2018, 31 August the yearly premium of Rs 330 will apply for the complete one year. However, the debit will be completed in 2018, September.

Chandigarh, January 23, 2019
One of my close friends had been using ICICI term insurance since last 8 years. He has married 2 years ago and due to unfortunate circumstances involved, he was severely injured in an accident. Thankfully, ICICI team was really considerate and helpful while helping his wife settling the claim. The claim settlement was fast and timely. Following his steps, I have recently bought ICICI Pru iProtect Smart. It is safe to say that investing in ICICI term insurance is definitely worth every penny experience. It has worked as a great deal for me. The staff was really good and was prompt with their service.

Life insurance plan
I buy life insurance policy with icici, basically i took this plan for the savings purposes. Premium payment is made by cheque and the executive agent is coming to my place to collect this amount. As this policy is endowment policy, I need to pay on yearly basis for 7 years. And the policy holder will get good returns after 13 years.
