Reliance Life Pay Five Plan


Reliance Life Pay Five Plan is a unit linked insurance plan (ULIP) where the Premium needs to be paid only for 5 years. This is a Non-Traditional Plan without Bonus Facility.

In this plan, annual premium is paid only for a period of 5 years but the policy continues till the end of the Policy Term. There are 8 funds in which the Policyholder may choose to invest his money such that he gets returns according to his risk appetite. In this plan, the Life Insured will receive the entire Fund Value on the Policy maturity. However, if the Life Insured dies within the policy tenure, the nominee would receive Double Death Benefit, i.e. the Sum Assured + the Fund Value as Death Benefit. This is paid to combat the immediate expenses on the premature death of the Life Insured and then the policy terminates.
