Non-Payment of premium in Bharti AXA Life Monthly Advantage Plan

Premiums have to be paid for at least 2 yearsfor a premium paying term of 6 and 8 years and for at least 3 years for a premium paying term of 12 years. If the required premiums are not paid, the policy would lapse without accruing any benefits if it is not revived within the revival period. If the first 2 or 3 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 least2 or 3 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. Future bonuses would not be declared under the plan and the Paid-up Sum Assured would be calculated as follows:
Paid-up Sum Assured = Sum Assured * (number of premiums paid/ number of premiums payable)
  • Death Benefit or Accidental Total and Permanent Disability Benefit– Paid-up Sum Assured payable as annual installments from the next policy anniversary following death or disability. The benefit would be payable for 6 years for a term of 12 years, 8 years for a term of 16 years and 12 years for a term of 24 years. The vested reversionary bonuses and any Terminal Bonus would be paid immediately on death or accidental disability. 
  • Survival Benefits – If the policy has lapsed and the premium payment term is also completed, the survival benefit is paid annually from the next year. The benefit paid would be reduced in proportion to the premiums paid to the premiums payable and would be as follows:
Policy Term Years for which the benefit is payable The income expressed as a percentage of the annual premium
12 years 6 years 105% * (number of premiums paid/ number of premiums payable)
16 years 8 years 110% * (number of premiums paid/ number of premiums payable)
24 years 12 years 120% * (number of premiums paid/ number of premiums payable)
 


Surrendering the policy

Surrender is allowed only after the policy becomes paid-up, i.e. after 2or 3 years’ premiums have been paid.
