What happens if?

 

 

You stop paying the premium – If you stop paying the premiums after 3 policy years, the policy acquires a Paid Up Value for a Reduced Sum Assured but the policy would be eligible for any future regular additions.

 

Reduced Sum Assured Value= Guaranteed Maturity Benefit X (Total Number of Premiums Paid/Total Number of Premiums Payable)

However, the policy can be revived within 2 years from the first unpaid premium by paying up the due premiums along with interest as calculated.

 

You want to surrender the policy – On discontinuing the policy you will be entitled to a surrender value which is the higher of the Guaranteed Surrender Value (GSV) and Non Guaranteed Surrender Value (NGSV).

 

The GSV=35% of Premiums paid - First Year’s Premium.

 

The NGSV= Present Value of Paid Up Sum Assured, discounted at the Gross Redemption Yield at the Review Date immediately preceding the date of surrender, plus 2% per annum.

 

You want a loan against your policy – Loan facility is available under this policy upto 80% of Surrender Value.
