Let us take a look at the benefits of this ICICI Pru Protect and Gain Plan:
On the death of the policyholder during the policy term, the plan provides protection by paying an amount that is higher of the following:
Sum assured + Top-up (if any)
Fund value + top-up fund value (if any)
Minimum Death Benefit (105% of the total premiums paid)
On survival of the policy term, the plan will provide the Fund value + Top-up fund value (if any), given that the policy has not been claimed and the premiums have been duly paid.
You can choose to invest your premium amount into any of the 18 available fund options across balanced, equity, and debt funds as per your risk appetite.
You can choose from the following 4 portfolio strategies as per your suitability. You can also change the portfolio strategy a maximum of 4 times a policy year.
Fixed Portfolio Strategy: Under this, you can choose the funds you want your premiums to be invested in and switch money among the fund options. You can also select Automatic Transfer Strategy (ATS) under this strategy.
Target Asset Allocation Strategy: Under this strategy, you can distribute your money under any two funds and choose asset allocation as per your risk appetite. Your portfolio will be rebalanced every quarter to balance asset allocation.
Trigger Portfolio Strategy 2: Under this, the premiums will be distributed in a 75:25 ratio in the Multi Cap Growth Fund and Income Fund. The fund distribution will be altered as per market performance.
Lifestyle Based Portfolio Strategy 2: This portfolio strategy distributes your fund in Multi Cap Growth Fund and Income Fund and allows you to adapt the fund allocation as per your changing needs with age.
With this option, you can choose to receive the maturity amount as regular income paid over a span of 5 years. The available income options are monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, and yearly modes. However, under this option, the return of mortality and premium allocation charges, switching facility, and partial withdrawals are not applicable.
You can increase your sum assured by adding an additional amount as top-up premiums on top of the base premiums before the last five years of the policy term. The minimum top-up premium allowed is Rs. 2000, and once the top-up premium is paid, it cannot be withdrawn for 5 years from the date of payment. You can make a maximum of 99 top-ups during the policy term.
You can make partial withdrawals after the end of the lock-in period (i.e. 5 years from the policy inception date). The partial withdrawals are free of cost, and the maximum value of the total withdrawal amount cannot exceed 20% of the fund value in a policy year. You can withdraw a minimum amount of Rs. 2000 for each withdrawal.
Under this protection plan’s partial withdrawal facility, you can opt for the systematic withdrawal plan to receive regular income for fulfilling your financial needs. You can withdraw a predetermined percentage of your fund value. You can use this amount to pay for your child’s education or meet other financial expenses.
The following are the available riders that you can add to the base plan for enhanced coverage:
Accidental Death Benefit Rider
This rider provides an additional benefit amount to the nominee on the accidental death of the life assured.
Accidental Total Permanent Disability Rider
This rider offers the rider sum assured to the nominee of the policy in case of the policyholder’s accidental total permanent disability during the policy term.
You can change the premium payment frequency only at policy anniversaries during the premium payment term as per the policy T&Cs.
With ICICI Pru Protect and Gain, you can make unlimited free switches between funds as per your preference.
