How does the LIC New Endowment Plan work?

The premium paid by you is invested into the 4 Funds of your choice. The details of the Fund Options are mentioned later in this page. You will receive Units of the Funds. The value of funds will be determined by the NAV of funds which keeps changing on a daily basis depending on how they are invested. The Units x NAV of the funds you hold gives you the Fund Value of your investments on a daily basis. There are a list of charges which are applicable in this plan - details will be explained in the “Charges” section later in this article.
