Term insurance plans help in protecting your family’s financial security. These plans pay a lump sum benefit to the family on the death of the insured and the premiums are very low. As such, they help in replacing the income for the family which is lost on the death of the bread-winner. LIC Amulya Jeevan II is such a protection plan which provides unmatched protection to you and your family.
Overview of LIC Amulya Jeevan II Plan
LIC Amulya Jeevan II is a pure term insurance plan which pays a lump sum death benefit if the insured dies during the term of the policy.
Key features of LIC Amulya Jeevan II Plan
Here are the notable features of the plan which make it advantageous for policyholders –
- The sum assured is paid in a lump sum on the death of the insured within the policy duration
- The premiums are very low and affordable allowing you to opt for high coverage levels for your family’s financial security
- Coverage for up to 35 years is available under the plan
Benefits offered by LIC Amulya Jeevan II Plan
Here are the benefits which the plan offers –
- Death benefit
If the insured dies within the term of the policy, the sum assured is paid in a lump sum and the policy is terminated.
- Maturity benefit
Since this is a pure term insurance plan, the plan has no maturity benefit. If the insured survives the term of the policy, no benefit would be paid.
If the due premiums are not paid within the due date of the policy, the policy would lapse. If the policy lapses the coverage stops and no benefits are payable. However, LIC Amulya Jeevan II allows you a period of two years to revive a lapsed policy. Within these two years, you can pay the outstanding premiums and reinstate a lapsed policy. Once revived, the policy allows you full coverage for the remaining period of insurance.
Tax benefits of LIC Amulya Jeevan II Plan
LIC Amulya Jeevan II Plan offers you two different tax benefits both on the investments that you as well as the benefits which you receive. The tax benefits are as follows –
- Section 80C
The premiums that you pay to buy and renew the policy are allowed as a tax-free deduction from your taxable income. You can reduce your taxable income by INR 1.5 lakhs by claiming a deduction on the premium paid for the policy.
- Section 10 (10D)
The death benefit which is paid under the policy also does not attract any tax. The benefit is completely free from tax. Thus, your family can enjoy a lump sum benefit on which no tax would be payable.
