This term plan gives policyholders significant financial protection and distributes additional advantages, making Mera Jeevan Suraksha Plan an all-in-one term insurance plan. 

Some advantages of the policy are:

  • If policyholders decide to opt for higher sum assured, the insurer will offer special premium rates based on the Sum Assured slabs. The existing Sum Assured slabs are Rs. 25 lakhs, Rs. 49.99 lakhs, Rs. 50 lakhs, Rs. 99.99 lakhs, Rs.1 crore, Rs. 1.99 crores, Rs.2 crores, and above.
  • Special premiums rates are available for females 
  • Insurer offers flexible premium payment modes. Policyholders can select to pay premiums by annual, semi-annual, or monthly mode. 
  • At the time of term plan purchase, the policyholders will be given a choice to opt for lump sum benefit in case of death or diagnosis of terminal illness of the person insured under the plan during the policy tenure. The lump-sum benefit will be equal to the sum assured on death.
  • Policyholders can choose single or multiple nominees to receive the term plan benefits. They can also decide which nominee will get what percentage of the sum assured.
  • Policyholders have to decide the amount for the monthly income at the time of policy inception. When the person covered under the plan dies or is diagnosed with a terminal illness, the insurer will pay monthly income over 10 years, equal to the sum assured amount.
  • The insurer also offers increasing monthly income with an increased rate of 10% per annum on a simple interest basis. 
  • Tax benefits under section 80C are also available.

 “Tax benefit is subject to changes in tax laws. Standard T&C apply.”

Premium Illustration

Now we will see the case of Mahi, who is 40 years old, a non-smoker, and opted for the policy for the tenure of 30 years. She also chooses the additional benefit of the return of premium paid. She nominated three people for sum assured distribution. As per her instructions, 40% of the sum assured will go to her mother, 30% to her daughter, and the rest 30% to her husband.

Annual Premium – 30,580

Monthly income decided at the time of policy purchase – 50,000

Death/Terminal illness cover – equal to 100 times of monthly income 50000x100 = 5000,000

Lump sum – 5000,000

Total income – 6000,000

Total benefit – 1,10,000,00


If she decided not to go for "return of premium paid," then the annual premium will be 16,080.

The Premium amount mentioned above does not include the taxes. 

The term plan will be terminated once the last tranche of a monthly instalment is paid.

If Mahi survived until the end of the maturity period, she would receive the premium paid, excluding extra premiums and taxes.

Additional Riders

Mera Jeevan Suraksha Plan allows its customers to opt for the additional rider as per their requirement to make the term plan even more convenient. With this rider, policyholders can add more value to their plan by paying some extra premium.

Return of Premiums

Under this rider on the survival of the policyholder till the maturity period, the insurer will pay the maturity amount, which will be equal to the sum assured on maturity. 

Three scenarios under " Return of Premiums" maturity benefit:

Survival of both policyholder and spouse 

Sum assured will be paid, which will be equal to 100% of the total premium paid to both policyholder and spouse up till maturity.

In case of death or diagnosis of terminal illness of the Policyholder, and survival of Spouse 

Sum assured will be paid, which will be equal to the total additional premium paid for the spouse. 

In case of death or diagnosis of terminal illness of the Spouse, and survival of the Policyholder till maturity.

Sum assured will be paid, which will be equal to the total additional premium paid for the Policyholder.
