COMPARE THIS PLAN WITH OTHER ENDOWMENT PLANS

 

LIC Jeevan Lakshya Plan with an Example

We have Nitesh Dubey, age 35 who wishes to buy this plan. He goes in for the plan with the following:

Sum Assured - Rs. 2,00,000
Term - 25 years
Premium Payment Term = 25 - 3 = 22 years

Based on these parameters, his annual premium is Rs. 8,645 + Taxes = Rs. 9,034. Here we have assumed the current tax rate of 4.5%.


Death Benefit

Scenario 1 : If Nitesh dies after 4 policy years.

In 4 years, he would have paid Rs. 36,136 as premiums. The Sum Assured of his plan is Rs. 2,00,000.  

His nominee will get the following benefits:
  • Annual Income Benefit of 10% of Sum Assured - Rs. 20,000. At the end of the 4th year, the nominee will get Rs. 20,000. This amount would be paid every year till the end of the 24th year.
  • 110% of Sum Assured - Rs. 2,20,000. At the end of the 25th year the nominee will get Rs. 2,20,000 
  • Along with the Rs. 2,20,000 the Simple Reversionary Bonus which has accrued in the plan along with any Final Addition Bonus will also be paid to the nominee.

Scenario 2 : If Nitesh dies after 15 policy years

In 15 years, he would have paid Rs. 1,35,510 as premiums. The Sum Assured of his plan is Rs. 2,00,000.  

His nominee will get the following benefits:
  • Annual Income Benefit of 10% of Sum Assured - Rs. 20,000. At the end of the 15th year, the nominee will get Rs. 20,000. This amount would be paid every year till the end of the 24th year.
  • 110% of Sum Assured - Rs. 2,20,000. At the end of the 25th year the nominee will get Rs. 2,20,000.
  • Along with the Rs. 2,20,000 the Simple Reversionary Bonus which has accrued in the plan along with any Final Addition Bonus will also be paid to the nominee.

Maturity Benefit

Scenario 3 : If Nitesh survives till the end of the policy term of 25 years - Nitesh will get the  Sum Assured + Simple Reversionary Bonus + Final Addition Bonus as declared. 

Total Premiums Paid = Rs. 1,98,748

Sum Assured = Rs. 2,00,000

Let us assume that a Simple Reversionary Bonus of Rs. 49 per 1,000 Sum Assured. There is no guarantee that this will be the bonus rate for all years.

Simple Reversionary Bonus = 49 x 2,00,000 / 1,000 for 25 years = Rs. 2,45,000 

Again, let us assume a Final Addition Bonus of Rs.  

So Sumit will get Rs. 2,00,000 + Rs. 2,00,000 + Rs. 1,00,000 = Rs. 3,00,000
