Working of the Bajaj Allianz Young Assure Plan

  • The policyholder chooses the policy term, premium payment term, premium paying frequency and the Guaranteed Maturity Benefit. Based on these criteria and the age of the insured, the amount of annual premium would be calculated. 
  • The Sum Assured would be fixed at 10 times the annual premium paid.
  • The policyholder would then have to choose from one of the available three cash installment options of receiving the maturity benefit.
  • Guaranteed Additions would be added to the plan at the end of the plan tenure.
  • On death during the period, the death benefit is paid and the policy is converted into a fully paid-up policy where premiums are not required. When the term ends, the maturity benefit is again paid.
  • On maturity, the maturity benefit is paid depending on the cash installment option chosen by the policyholder.

When the policy matures, the maturity benefit would be paid under the policy and the plan would terminate.

He chose a Guaranteed Maturity Benefit (GMB) of Rs.3,00,000, for which he will have to pay a premium of Rs.24,363 p.a. He chose Cash Installment option of 5 years for Arnav and on maturity 5 Cash Installments over 5 years starting from the policy term end will be paid. Gautam's Sum Assured will be = 10 times of Annualised Premium = 10 X Rs.24,363 = Rs.2,43,630.
On maturity, Gautam will receive Cash Installments as shown in the table below:



In case of unfortunate death of Gautam during the 5 policy year, his son Arnav, who is the nominee, will receive
Rs.3,00,000 (Guaranteed Maturity Benefit).
The policy will continue till maturity as a fully paid-up policy and on maturity, Arnav will receive the Cash Installments as

Non-Payment of premium in Bajaj Allianz Young Assure Plan

Premiums have to be paid for at least 1 year if the premium paying term is less than 10 years or 2 years if the premium paying term is more than 10 years. After this compulsory period, the policyholder can surrender the policy or make it paid-up.

Making the policy Paid-up

If at least1 or 2 full years’ premium has been paid, the policy would become a paid-up policy if future premiums are not paid. The benefits under the plan would be reduced and would be called Paid-up benefits. Bonuses would not be declared under the policy and the following benefits would be paid as and when they occur:
  • Death Benefit –Paid-up Sum Assured on death is payable and the policy would continue till the end of the tenure when the maturity benefit would be paid.
  • Maturity benefit – Paid-up Guaranteed Maturity Benefit + vested bonus + pad-up guaranteed additions would be paid as per the cash installment option selected.


Surrendering the policy

Surrender is allowed only after the policy becomes paid-up, i.e. after 1 or 2 full years’ 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 = (total premiums paid till the date of surrender * GSV1 Factor)+ (Vested bonuses * GSV2factor of bonus)
  • The SSV factors would be declared by the company based on its performance and would be computed as follows:
    SSV = (paid-up Sum Assured on death*SSV1 Factor) + {(paid-up Guaranteed Maturity Benefit + paid-up Guaranteed Additions)* SSV2 Factor} + (vested bonus * SSV3 Factor)
Revival 

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. 

Foreclosure 

If a loan is availed under a policy, the loan and the interest therein should not exceed the Surrender Value in the policy. If the policy is in-force, this does not happen. If the policy is made paid-up, the policyholder would be notified and the policy would be foreclosed.
