Hi Sir,
i am planning to take a Jeevan Anand policy, but i have few doubts before i take this plan, basically this policy is popular for risk extended after maturity period as well till 100 years.
but few agents are telling that, there is an other option also, this plan, which, once we get our maturity ammount, the risk will continue till the death or 100year, in case we donot want to take risk cover after our maturity, we can cancel our risk till death and surrender our plan get some ammount. is it true. why any company will second surrender option. once we get our maturity ammount.. ?
could you please reply.

i would like to take a retirement policy, and LIC agent is recommending, LIC Magic Retair-2, which is a combination of 15 to 20 Jeevan Anand policies. looks bit confusing and this Magic Retire-2 is not exactly a LIC policy. if i take this policy. is there any risk occurred in future ?

kindly reply,

By Vishwanath on Sep 06, 2013 Reply

Dear Vishwanath, this is not a plan but a bunch of plans which the agents have renamed as Repair 2. There are different names which are given to such options. So it is not an LIC plan but a number of LIC plans which they stitch together. There are pros and cons to it. On the pros, they tend to provide you an annual payout with the maturity year being one after the other. On the cons, you now have to manage a really large number of plans which is not an ideal scenario.

There is no risk as such as they are LIC plans.

The easier and better option for LIC is to go for LIC New Jeevan Nidhi Plan which is actually a pension plan and then go in for an Immediate Annuity Plan like LIC Jeevan Akshay 6. Thatg way you get regular income post retirment. The agent may advise you otherwise as he gets to do lesser number of plans and his income will be less.

Do write back in case any further clarification is required.

Hi Deepak,
Thank you for your advice, i have few more doubts, my age is 43 years, i can afford to pay maximum 70 thousand to 1 lack for my annual retirement plan as a yearly premium. i would like to get my returns or retirement income from either 58 or 60 years onwards,
as you said above, if i go for both LIC new jeevan nidhi plan and LIC jeevan akshay 6, how can i split my 70 to 1 lack annual amount into these two plans ? and how much monthly or annual income i will get after my 58 or 60 years of age. (am 43 years old now).
i greatly appreciate your time and suggestions.

Hi Vishwanath, let me first explain how this works. Let us assume you retire at age "60". So from age 43 to age 60 you pay annual premiums to build a "corpus" of funds to use for retirement. Read more on New Jeevan Nidhi. You get nothing back in this period. This is how a Pension Plan or Deferred Annuity Plan works. On reaching the age of 60, this plan matures and the amount which accumulated (your corpus) will be used to buy and Immediate Annuity Plan from the same company. The immediate annuity plan will give you a regular monthly/annual payment till you are alive (there are multiple options you can opt). Read more on Jeevan Akshay 6. When New Jeevan Nidhi matures, you will have an option of withdrawing upto a maximum of 1/3 of the accumulated amount for your immediate needs. The balance will have to be used to purchase the annuity.

So you don't have to invest in both the above mentioned plans. Just New Jeevan Nidhi is required for now.

I would not recommend putting your entire (70k to 1 lakh) in pension plans through insurers to build your corpus. Use some part of it here, use some part for buying mutual funds, try the NPS route also for sure. This of course depends on how comfortable you are with various investmetn avenues.

Do write back in case you still have any questions. Pls feel free.

i have a jeevan shree-1 policy for 5 lacks, and payed all my premiums from the last 16 years, now there is a waiting period for 9 years to get my matured amount back. now my question is..
since i have paid all the 16 years, in the 17th year if i want to surrender my policy. how much ammount i will get back. i dont want risk cover from this policy. since i have another polilcy is running for next 20 years.

kindly give me your advice.

By Vishwanath on Sep 06, 2013 Reply

Dear Vishwanath, surrendering a plan gives you a very small component of the premiums you have paid till date. I would not recommend it at all.

The Guaranteed Surrender Value 30% of all premiums paid minus the 1st year's premium. You may get a little more in your case. Surely not something you want to get into after having paid all the premiums.

I would recommend waiting out the time.

I have taken jeevan-shree policy in the year 2003. Ihave paid all the 16 premiums. Sum assured is Rs.500000/- Policy will mature in the year 2028. If I want to surrender it now how much returns will I get

By 03.09. 2013

By Manmatha Bingu on Sep 03, 2013 Reply

Dear Manmatha, surrendering a policy will result in a huge financial loss as you will get back less than 30% of all premiums paid. So it does not make any sense to surrender the policy. 

We recommend that you wait out and get complete benefits of bonus and additions if any.

Dear Harish, if you are looking at maximizing returns I would recommend going in for ULIPs. With a 15 to 20 year horizon, chances are that you will be able to get good results.

With traditional plans it would be difficult to get any great returns as they are very conservatively managed.

I have taken jeevan-shree policy in the year 1995. Ihave paid all the 16 premiums. Sum assured is Rs.500000/- Policy will mature in the year 2020. If I want to surrender it now how much returns will I get?

By Riya Bedekar on Apr 10, 2013 Reply

Hi Riya, in case of surrender you would not get a lot of benefits. The guaranteed surrender value is 30% of the basic premiums paid excluding the first year’s premium. There is a component which you might get over and above this. But that can only be found out by contacting the local lic office.
