The term of the policy is 99 years minus the entry age.

This plan allows you to decide the sum assured on maturity and choose premium payment term basis which is the basis of premium payable by you.

Benefits

Death Benefit: In case of death of the policyholder, other than sum assured the plan also pays out bonus, due to the participating nature of the plan.
Sum assured on death is higher of the two:
  • Sum assured on maturity, or
  • 11 times of annualized premium, or
  • 105 percent of premium paid until death (minus service tax & cess as applicable and rider premium)
Maturity Benefit: When policyholder survives policy term, maturity benefit is sum assured on maturity plus cash bonus (if any) plus paid-up additions bonus (if any) plus terminal bonus (if any).

There are two bonus options available: Cash payout and Paid-up additions.

In cash payout option, bonus accrued during the premium payment term is paid in a lump-sum. Additionally, cash bonus (if any) would be paid annually after the end of every year post the premium-payment period till the end of policy term or death whichever is earlier.

While under paid-up addition, the yearly bonus mentioned above will get accrued which means the annual bonus is used to buy paid-up additions (PUAs)
