LIC Limited Premium Endowment Plan with an Example


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

Sum Assured - Rs. 3,00,000
Term - 12 years
Premium Payment Term = 9 years
Riders - None selected

Based on these parameters, his annual premium is Rs. 29,944 + Taxes = Rs. 31,291. Here we have assumed the current tax rate of 4.5%.


Death Benefit

Scenario 1
: If Raghav dies after 4 policy years.

Now Sum Assured on Death is the highest of the following:
  • 10 times the Annualised Premium = 10 x 29,944 = Rs. 2,99,440
  • 125% of Basic Sum Assured = Rs. 1.25 x 3,00,000 = 3,75,000
  • 105% of all premiums paid = 105% x 4 x 29,944 = Rs. 1,25,765
Hence the Sum Assured on Death = Rs. 3,75,000

His nominee gets the sum of the following:
  • Sum Assured on Death = Rs. 3,75,000
  • Simple Reversionary Bonus = 4 x 12,000 = Rs. 48,000
  • Final Addition Bonus = Nil 
Here we have assumed the Simple Reversionary Bonus Rate of Rs. 40 per 1,000 Sum Assured. So the bonus in a year will be 40 x 3,00,000 / 1,000 = Rs. 12,000. Please keep in mind that is an assumption - the actual bonus rates will only be known when LIC declares it every year.

His nominee will get Rs. 3,75,000 + Rs. 48,000 = Rs. 4,23,000

Scenario 2 : If Raghav dies after 8 policy years

Now Sum Assured on Death is the highest of the following:
  • 10 times the Annualised Premium = 10 x 29,944 = Rs. 2,99,440
  • 125% of Basic Sum Assured = Rs. 1.25 x 3,00,000 = 3,75,000
  • 105% of all premiums paid = 105% x 4 x 29,944 = Rs. 1,25,765

Hence the Sum Assured on Death = Rs. 3,75,000

His nominee gets the sum of the following:
  • Sum Assured on Death = Rs. 3,75,000
  • Simple Reversionary Bonus = 8 x 12,000 = Rs. 96,000
  • Final Addition Bonus = Nil 

Here we have assumed the Simple Reversionary Bonus Rate of Rs. 40 per 1,000 Sum Assured. So the bonus in a year will be 40 x 3,00,000 / 1,000 = Rs. 12,000. Please keep in mind that is an assumption - the actual bonus rates will only be known when LIC declares it every year. The Final Addition Bonus is also an assumption.

His nominee will get Rs. 3,75,000 + Rs. 96,000 = Rs. 4,71,000


Maturity Benefit 

Scenario 3 : If Raghav survives till the end of the policy term of 12 years - He will get the sum of the following:

Basic Sum Assured = Rs. 3,00,000 
Simple Reversionary Bonus = Rs. 1,44,000
Final Addition Bonus = Nil  

Here we have assumed the Simple Reversionary Bonus Rate of Rs. 40 per 1,000 Sum Assured. So the bonus in a year will be 40 x 3,00,000 / 1,000 = Rs. 12,000. Please keep in mind that is an assumption - the actual bonus rates will only be known when LIC declares it every year. The Final Addition Bonus is also an assumption.

On Maturity Raghav will get = Rs. 3,00,000 + Rs. 1,44,000 = Rs. 4,44,000
