Exclusions in Aviva Dhan Samruddhi Plan

  • If the policyholder commits suicide within a year of policy issuance 80% of the premiums paid would be returned and no death benefit would be payable.

Non-Payment of premium in Aviva Dhan Samruddhi Plan

Premiums have to be paid for at least 1 year otherwise the policy would lapse without accruing any benefits. If the first year’s premium has been paid and the second year’s premium is not paid, the policy would lapse. If the policy is not revived, 30% of the premiums paid would be returned and the plan would be terminated. The death benefit during the revival period would also be limited to 30% of the premiums paid. After the first 2 years’ premiums and have been paid and later premiums are not paid, the policyholder can surrender the policy or make it paid-up.

Making the policy Paid-up

If at least 2 full years’ premium has been paid, the policy would become a paid-up policy if future premiums are not paid. The Sum Assured under the plan would be reduced and would be called Paid-up Sum Assured. Guaranteed Additions would not accrue under the policy and the following benefits would be paid as and when they occur. Survival benefits would also not accrue on a paid-up policy.

Paid-up Sum Assured = Sum Assured * (number of premiums paid/ number of premiums payable)
  • Death Benefit – Paid-up Sum Assured + accrued Guaranteed Additions
  • Maturity benefit – Paid-up Sum Assured + accrued Guaranteed Additions) – survival benefits already paid

Surrendering the policy

Surrender is allowed only after the policy becomes paid-up, i.e. after 2years’ premiums have been paid. On surrendering the policy, higher of the Guaranteed Surrender Value (GSV) or the Special Surrender Value (SSV) would be paid.
  • GSV = (Basic Premium paid excluding taxes * GSV Factor) – survival benefits already paid
  • The SSV factors would be declared by the company based on its performance and would be calculated as follows:
    SSV = {(Paid-up Sum Assured + accrued Guaranteed Additions) * SSV Factor} - survival benefits already paid


Revival is allowed within 2 years from the date of the first unpaid premium. The policyholder would be required to pay the outstanding premium and any interest charged by the insurer to revive his policy.
