How does LIC New Jeevan Anand Plan Works?

The policyholder can choose the policy term and sum assured at the time of buying the policy. Premium needs to be paid throughout the policy term. In case the insured dies during the chosen policy period, the death benefit will be paid to the nominee/beneficiary. In case, the insured survives the policy period, maturity benefit will be paid on the date of policy maturity. However, the policy continues to stay in force even after maturity benefits are paid until the date of the insured’s death. Death benefits will be paid on death even after maturity. Let’s understand this with an example.

Mr Mohan, aged 30 years buys LIC New Jeevan Anand plan for 30 years tenure with INR 10 lakhs sum assured. The yearly premium payable would be around INR 39,500 for 30 years. Premium can be easily calculated using the LIC Jeevan Anand Calculator.

Let’s assume, LIC declares a simple reversionary bonus of 50 per 1,000 sum assured and a final additional bonus of 15 per 1,000 sum assured. This means annual simple reversionary bonus will be 50/1,000 (10, 00,000) = 50,000. And, the final bonus would be 15/1,000 (10, 00,000) = 15,000.

(Please note bonuses are dependent on the company’s performance. Above rates are assumed for illustration purposes only.)

Let’s take different scenarios to understand the working of the policy.

Scenario 1: Mohan dies in the 15th year of the plan

As per the policy terms, Mohan’s nominee would get the following death benefits on his death.

Death benefit = sum assured on death + vested simple reversionary bonuses + final additional bonus (if any)

= 12, 50,000 + 15X50, 000 + 15,000 = INR 20, 15,000

Where Sum assured on death is higher of the following

  • 125% X basic sum assured = 125% X 10, 00,000 = INR 12, 50,000
  • 10 X annualised premium = 10 X 39,500 = INR 3, 95,000
  • 105% of all the premiums paid till death = 105% of 15 X 39,500 = INR 6, 22,125

Scenario 2: Mohan survives the policy term of 30 years

Mohan would get the following maturity benefits for surviving the policy term.

Maturity benefit = basic sum assured + vested simple reversionary bonuses + final additional bonuses, if any

= 10, 00,000 + 30X 50, 000 + 15,000 = INR 25, 15,000

After the payment of maturity benefit, the policy will continue to provide risk cover for the whole life. If Mohan dies any time after maturity, his nominee would be entitled to the death benefit of INR 10, 00,000 (basic sum assured).

Surrender or revival of LIC New Jeevan Anand plan

Revival

In case, insured fails to make premium payment within the due date to pay, the policy offers a grace period of 15 days to 30 days (depending on the mode of payment). If the insured fails to make payment within the grace period given, the policy will lapse. However, the policy can be revived within a period of two consecutive years from the date of the first unpaid premium by paying all the premiums due along with interest.

If the policy has completed three years with full premium payments, the policy can be converted to ‘paid-up’ status wherein the policy continues to stay in force without any further payment of premium. However, the sum assured will be reduced to ‘paid-up sum assured’ (basic sum assured X number of premiums paid/number of premiums payable).

Surrender

The policy can be surrendered at any time during the policy term. The surrender value payable would depend on the number of policy years and premiums paid to date. There are two scenarios to this.

  • Surrendering the policy within three years of inception: If the policy is surrendered during the first three years, the surrender value will be nil and nothing is payable to the policyholder.
  • Surrendering the policy after completion of three years: After three years of full premium payment, the policy can be surrendered for cash. Guaranteed surrender value applicable for the particular policy year (percentage of total premiums paid) will be payable to the policyholder after deduction of surrender charges if any. In the case of paid-up policies, the paid-up sum assured will be payable to the policyholder.

Exclusions in LIC New Jeevan Anand

Suicide exclusion: If the life assured commits suicide within 12 months from commencement of the policy or 12 months from date of revival of the policy, insane or insane state, no death benefit will be payable to the beneficiary. However, an amount equivalent to 80% of total premiums paid till the date of death is paid to the beneficiary. After the payment, all the benefits under the policy will be ceased.
