Benefits Of LIC New Jeevan Amar

Death Benefits: In case the policyholder suffers an unfortunate death within the policy term, the nominee will receive the Sum assured on Death. This Sum Assured on Death depends on the premium payment option selected by the policyholder:

  • For Regular and Limited Premium Payment Options, the ‘Sum Assured on Death’ will be the highest of the following 

    • 7 times the Annualised premiums

    • 105 percent of the ‘Total premiums amount paid’ until the demise of the assured

    • Absolute assured amount to be paid on death

  • For Single Premium Payment, the ‘Sum Assured on Death’ will be the higher of the following

    • 125% of Single Premium

    • Absolute assured amount to be paid on death

Here is a list of sum assured options available under the plan

    • Option 1: Level Sum Assured

In this option, the Absolute sum assured payable on death will be the basic sum assured amount which will remain the same all over the policy term.

    • Option 2: Increasing Sum Assured

In this, the Absolute sum assured payable on death becomes twice the basic sum assured amount by the end of the policy tenure.

Maturity Benefits: The policyholder shall receive no maturity value in case they outlive the policy term since this is a pure-risk LIC term insurance plan.

Tax Benefits: The assured will be eligible to receive tax benefits under Section 80C and Section 10(10D) of the Income Tax Act.
