Birla Sun Life Dream Life Plan
 
The Dream Life Plan from Birla Sun Life Insurance is a Unit Linked Non-Participating Endowment Plan. Thus it is a Non-Traditional Plan without Bonus Facility.
 
How it works – In this plan, the Premium Amount and the Savings Date are chosen and the Basic Sum Assured and the Guaranteed Savings Amount is calculated automatically. The premium can be paid for a period of 5, 10, 15 or 20 years as chosen while the policy continues till Whole Life. There is a Life Coverage of the Basic Sum Assured throughout the policy term. The Life Coverage can also be increased by choosing an Enhanced Sum Assured.
 
Thus, on the chosen Guaranteed Savings Date, higher of the Fund Value and the Guaranteed Savings Fund is paid as Maturity Benefit. The entire amount is invested in the only Fund in this plan, Enhancer Fund.
 
However, if the Life Insured dies before the Guaranteed Savings Date, the Sum Assured + the Fund Value + Enhanced Sum Assured, if any is paid as Death Benefit to the nominee and policy terminates.
 
This Plan has 5 additional riders and 1 Investment Fund available in this plan. This plan also has Guaranteed Additions.
