Maturity Benefit

On Life Assured surviving the stipulated Date of Maturity provided the policy is in force, “Sum Assured on Maturity” along with accrued Guaranteed Additions, shall be payable. Where “Sum Assured on Maturity” is equal to 50% of Basic Sum Assured.

Death Benefit

Death Benefit payable on the death of Life Assured during the policy term after the date of commencement of risk shall be “Sum Assured on Death” along with Accrued Guaranteed Additions. Where “Sum Assured on Death” is defined as the higher of 125% of Basic Sum Assured or 7 times of annualized premium. This Death Benefit payment shall not be less than 105% of total premiums paid (excluding any extra premium, any rider premium (s), and taxes) up to the date of death. However, in the case of minor Life Assured, whose age at entry is below 8 years, on death before the commencement of Risk, the Death Benefit payable shall be a refund of premium(s) paid (excluding taxes, any extra premium, and rider premium(s), if any), without interest.

Survival Benefit

On the life assured surviving till each of the specified duration during the policy term, a fixed percentage of Basic Sum Assured shall be payable. The fixed percentage for various policy terms is as below:

Policy Term Payment of Survival Benefit
15 25% of the Basic Sum Assured at the end of each 13th and 14th policy year
20 25% of the Basic Sum Assured at the end of each of the 18th and 19th policy year
25 25% of the Basic Sum Assured at the end of each 23rd and 24th policy year

Guaranteed Additions (GA) shall accrue at the end of the each Policy Year at the rate as specified below:

Policy Year Guaranteed Additions
From 1st to 5th Rs. 50
From 6th to 10th Rs. 55
From 11th to 25th Rs. 60

Guaranteed Additions are per Rs. 1000 Basic Sum Assured.

So if you have a cover of Rs. 20,00,000 the GA would be as follows:

  • 1st to 5th year: 50 x 20 lakhs / 1,000 = Rs. 1 lakh each year = Rs. 5 lakhs
  • 6th to 10th year: 55 x 20 lakhs / 1,000 = Rs. 1.1 lakh each year = Rs. 5.5 lakhs
  • 11th to 25th year: 60 x 20 lakhs / 1,000 = Rs. 1.2 lakh each year = 18 lakhs
  • So you get Guaranteed Addition of Rs. 5 + 5.5 + 18 lakhs = 28.5 lakhs

How it works


The policyholder chooses the Sum Assured and the Term of the plan when buying the policy. Based on the Age of the insured, the Sum Assured and the Policy Term selected, the Premium is determined.

If the insured survives till the end of the policy term and all premiums have been paid, a Maturity Benefit would be paid to the policyholder. Maturity benefit would be equal to the Sum Assured + Bonus Amounts which have been received throughout the policy term + any Final Addition Bonus if declared. Now if the death of the insured occurs during the policy tenure, the nominee will get ‘Sum assured on death’ with Accrued Guaranteed Additions. Where “Sum Assured on Death” is defined as the higher of 125% of Basic Sum Assured or 7 times of annualized premium.

We will explain the plan with the help of an example.

Example – Yash, aged 30 years, buys LIC Bima Ratna Plan.
Sum Assured = Rs. 20 lakhs
Policy term = 25 years
Premium Paying Term = 21 years
Year of Purchase = 2022
Annual Premium = Rs. 1,16,178 + 4.5% GST

The premium would be payable for a duration of 21 years.

Scenario 1 – Yash survives till the end of the policy tenure.

Total Premium Paid in 21 years = Rs. 1,16,178 x 21 = Rs. 24,39,738

The Guaranteed Additions which he will receive:

Policy Year Guaranteed Addition
1 - 5 5 lakhs
6 - 10 5.5 lakhs
11 - 25 18 lakhs
Total 28.5 lakhs


The Survival Benefits he will receive:

Policy Year Money-Back
23 5 lakhs
24 5 lakhs
Total 10 lakhs

So Total Benefits in the policy = Rs. 28.5 + 10 lakhs = 38.5 lakhs


Scenario 2 – Yash dies during the policy term.

If Yash dies in the year 2035 (at age 43), then by that time,
Total premium paid = 13 x Annual Premium = Rs. 15,10,314

The nominee will get 125% of Sum Assured + Guaranteed Addition Bonus which is added every year.
Death Benefit = 125% of 20 Lakhs + (1 Lakh for 5 years) + (1.1 Lakh for 5 years) + (1.2 Lakhs for 3 years) = Rs. 39,10,000

Surrender Value

Paid-up Value

If the policyholder has paid the first two years’ premiums and future premiums have not been paid, the policy becomes a paid-up policy. The Basic Sum Assured under the plan is reduced in proportion to the number of premiums paid against the total number of premiums payable. Future bonuses are not added and on death or maturity, the reduced Sum Assured along with the vested bonuses is paid.

Surrender Value

If the policyholder wants, he can surrender his policy and avail the Surrender Value. The policy acquires a Surrender Value only if the first two years’ premiums have been paid. Higher of the Guaranteed Surrender Value (GSV) or the Special Surrender Value (SSV) is paid on surrendering the plan. GSV and SSV are calculated as follows:
GSV = (Total Premiums Paid * GSV Factor) + (Accrued Guaranteed Additions * GSV factor of Bonus)
SSV is declared by the company based on its performance.
