LIC Jeevan Utkarsh Plan Benefits

It is important to understand the concept of Risk Commencement Date in this plan as the life cover is only applicable after that date. In case, the policyholder is less than 8 years of at the time of buying the plan, it is important to understand that the life cover will start after this date. We have explained the Risk Commencement Date in LIC Jeevan Utkarsh Plan with examples

The Tabulated Single Premium in LIC Jeevan Utkarsh refers to the premium which is applicable without adding any premium increase due to underwriting reasons, riders, rebates for high sum assured or taxes.

Death Benefit

1. If death occurs anytime during the first 5 policy years:
  • If the death of the policyholder happens before the Risk Commencement Date, nominee will receive the Single Premium paid without any interest.
  • In case of death of the Life Insured after the Risk Commencement Date, the Nominee would be paid the higher of the following:
    • 125% of the Single Premium
    • Basic Sum Assured
    • 10 times the Tabulated Single Premium

2. In case of Death of the policyholder after 5 policy years, the nominee will be paid Loyalty Additions also. The nominee would receive the higher of the following:
  • 125% of the Single Premium + Loyalty Additions
  • Basic Sum Assured + Loyalty Additions
  • 10 times the Tabulated Single Premium + Loyalty Additions

Loyalty Additions will be applicable after 5 policy years and will be as decided and declared by LIC. 


Maturity Benefit

On survival till the end of the policy term, the policyholder will get Basic Sum Assured + Loyalty Additions.

Income Tax Benefit - Very Important


As per the current income tax rules, Life Insurance premiums paid up to Rs. 1,50,000 are allowed as a deduction from the taxable income each year under section 80C. However the premium paid has to be lower than or equal to 10% of the Sum Assured for this to be applicable. This does not happen in this Single Premium plan. 

Also the Maturity proceeds will be taxable under the current rules.

Let us understand this plan better with the help of an example.
 
Suppose Diwakar buys this plan with the following parameters:
 
Age - 30 years
Basic Sum Assured - Rs. 3,00,000
Policy Term = 12 years
 
So the Single premium will be Rs. would be Rs. 1,62,405 + Taxes. 
 
 
Scenario 1 - Diwakar dies after 3 years of buying the plan.
 
Since Diwakar died within 5 years of buying the plan, the Death Benefit paid to the nominee would be the higher of the following:
 
  • 125% of the Single Premium = Rs. 2,03,006
  • Basic Sum Assured = Rs. 3,00,000
  • 10 times the Tabulated Single Premium = Rs. 16,24,050

So the nominee will get Rs. 16,24,050 as Death Benefit and the policy terminates.


Scenario 2 - Diwakar dies after 7 years of buying the plan.

Since Diwakar died after 5 years of buying the plan, the Death Benefit paid to the nominee would be the higher of the following:

Death Benefit - Nominee gets higher of the following:

  • Basic Sum Assured = Rs. 3,00,000 + Loyalty Additions

So the nominee will get Rs. 16,24,050 + Loyalty Additions as Death Benefit and the policy terminates. Loyalty Additions will only be known as and when LIC declares the same.


Scenario 3 - Diwakar dies after 11 years of buying the plan.

Since Diwakar died after 5 years of buying the plan, the Death Benefit paid to the nominee would be the higher of the following:
