COMPARE THIS PLAN WITH OTHER ENDOWMENT PLANS


 

LIC Aadhaar Shila Plan with an Example


We have Priya Dixit, age 30 who wishes to buy this plan. He goes in for the plan with the following:

Sum Assured - Rs. 1,00,000
Term - 20 years
Premium Payment Term = 20 years

Based on these parameters, his annual premium is Rs. 3,641 + Taxes = Rs. 3,805. Here we have assumed the current tax rate of 4.5%.


Death Benefit

Scenario 1 : If Priya dies after 4 policy years.

Her nominee gets the highest of the following:
  • Basic Sum Assured - Rs. 1,00,000
  • 10 times the Annualised Premium = 10 x 3,641 = Rs. 36,410
  • 105% of all premiums paid till date of death = 105% x 4 x 3,641 = Rs. 15,292 

The highest of the above is Rs. 1,00,000 - which is what the nominee will receive. Since the policy has not completed 5 years, no Loyalty Additions will be payable.


Scenario 2 : If Priya dies after 15 policy years

Her nominee gets the highest of the following:
  • Basic Sum Assured - Rs. 1,00,000
  • 10 times the Annualised Premium = 10 x 3,641 = Rs. 36,410
  • 105% of all premiums paid till date of death = 105% x 15 x 3,641 = Rs. 57,346 

The highest of the above is Rs. 1,00,000. Since the plan has completed 5 policy years, it is eligible to receive Loyalty Additions. So nominee will receive Rs. 1,00,000 + Loyalty Additions. The value of Loyalty Additions can only be known when it is declared.


Maturity Benefit

Scenario 3 : If Priya survives till the end of the policy term of 20 years - Anurag will get the  Basic Sum Assured + Loyalty Addition as declared. 

Total Premiums Paid = Rs. 76,097 (including taxes)

Basic Sum Assured = Rs. 1,00,000

Loyalty Additions - As declared.
