Working of the Bajaj Allianz Life Secure Plan

  • The policyholder chooses the coverage required, the Death Benefit option and the Premium Paying Tenure based on which the premium amount is calculated.
  • If the insured dies any time before reaching 100 years of age, the death benefit is paid according to the chosen death benefit option.
  • If the policyholder survives till maturity, i.e. after attaining 100 years of age, the maturity benefit would be paid depending on the death benefit option chosen.


Benefits and Features of Bajaj Allianz Life Secure Plan

  • Maturity Benefit – If the insured attains 100 years and the plan matures, the Sum Assured is paid if any Critical Illness benefit is not paid under Death Benefit option III. If the Critical Illness benefit is paid, then the Sum Assured net of the benefit paid would be paid on maturity and the plan would terminate. 
  • Death Benefit – If the insured dies before reaching 100 years of age, the death benefit payable would be dictated by the Death Benefit option selected which is:
    • Death Benefit Option I – Only Death Benefit:
      Sum Assured on Death
    • Death Benefit Option II – Death Benefit plus Accidental death Benefit:
      Sum Assured on Death is payable if the death occurs due to any causes other than accident. In case of accidental death before reaching 65 years, Sum Assured on Death + Accidental Sum Assured (equal to Sum Assured to a maximum of Rs.2 crores) is paid
    • Death Benefit Option II – Death Benefit or Accelerated Critical Illness plus waiver ofPremium Benefit:
      If the insured suffers a Critical Illness before attaining 65 years of age and within the first 30 years of the policy tenure, 50% of the Sum Assured on death to a maximum of Rs.50 lakhs would be paid. Future premiums would be waived off and the plan would continue. If the policyholder dies subsequently, the remaining Sum Assured on Death would be paid and the policy would end. If any Critical illness has not occurred and the insured dies then full Sum Assured on death would be paid.

In case of unfortunate death, say, at age 50 (no critical illness benefit was paid before), the nominee/claimant will
receive Rs.30,00,000 immediately.

Non-Payment of premium in Bajaj Allianz Life Secure Plan

Premiums have to be paid for at least 2 years if the Premium Paying Term is lower than 10 years or 3 years if it is higher than 10 years after which the policyholder can surrender the policy or make it paid-up.

Making the policy Paid-up

If at least 2 or 3 full years’ premium has been paid depending on the premium paying term, the policy would become a paid-up policy if future premiums are not paid. The Sum Assured and the Sum Assured on Death would be reduced and would be called the Paid-up Sum Assured and Paid-up Sum Assured on death respectively. The death and maturity benefits under all the three options would be replaced by the Paid-up Sum Assured or the Paid-up Sum Assured on death wherever applicable
  • Paid-up Sum Assured - The Paid-up Sum Assured would be calculated as:
    Sum Assured * (number of Premiums Paid / total number of premiums payable)
  • Paid-up Sum Assured on Death–The Paid-up Sum Assured on death would be calculated as:
    Sum Assured on death* (number of Premiums Paid / total number of premiums payable)

Surrendering the policy

Surrender is allowed only after the policy becomes paid-up. 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 
  • The SSV would be declared by the company based on its performance and would be calculated as:
    (Paid-up Sum Assured – Critical Benefit Paid) * SSV factors

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.
