Sahara Umang Plan
Sahara Umang Plan is a Participating Endowment Plan. It is a Traditional Plan with Bonus facility.
How it works – In this plan, premium needs to be paid till the end of the policy tenure of 15 years

If the policy continues for 15 years, then Loyalty Addition would be payable along with the last i.e. the 10th installment (10% of Sum Assured).
However, if the Life Insured dies within the Policy Tenure. The entire Sum Assured would be paid to the nominee as Death Benefit but still the policy continues to pay the Guaranteed Additional Installment irrespective of the fact whether the Life Insured is alive or not.
