LIC Jeevan Nidhi Plan

 

This plan has been withdrawan. Refer to the New Annuity Plan launched by LIC - LIC New Jeevan Nidhi.
___________________________________________________________________________________ 


LIC Jeevan Nidhi is with bonus deferred annuity plan. This is a non unit-linked insurance pension plan. This plan is purchased to cover the risk of living too long and hence has multiple pension options to cover that risk. The corpus that is created to provide pension for old age is the Sum Assured + accrued Guaranteed Additions + simple Reversionary Bonus + Terminal Bonus. The age where pension is payable is called Vesting Age and the date when pension starts is called Vesting Date.

 

Thus, if the Life Insured survives the entire term, then he would get the option to withdraw 1/3rd of the entire corpus that has been accumulated tax free and start receiving pension from the remaining 2/3rd of it. He would also get multiple pension options to choose from.

However, if the Life Insured dies within the policy tenure, i.e. before the pension starts then his nominee would receive the Sum Assured + accrued Guaranteed Additions + simple Reversionary Bonus + Terminal Bonus, if any.
