Non-Payment of premium in TATA AIA Life Insurance Insta Wealth Plan

Premiums have to be paid for at least one full year otherwise the policy lapses and no benefit is payable. After this compulsory period, the policyholder can surrender the policy or make it paid-up if the premiums are not paid. 

Making the policy Paid-up

If at least one full years’ premium has been paid, the policy would become a paid-up policy if future premiums are not paid. The facility of loan cannot be availed in a paid-up policy. The benefits payable under the plan would be reduced and called Paid-up Benefits which are calculated as follows:
  • Death Benefit – The death benefit would be reduced and calculated as follows:
    {Sum Assured on Death *(number of premiums paid/total number of premiums payable)+ vested Guaranteed Additions + vested reversionary bonus + Terminal Bonus, if any} subject to a minimum of 105% of all premiums paid till death
  • Guaranteed Yearly Additions – The accrued additions added till the policy was in-force would be paid at the beginning of the last policy year. 
  • Maturity Benefit – The maturity benefit would  be calculated as follows:
    Minimum Guaranteed Sum Assured on Maturity * (number of premiums paid / number of premiums payable) + vested bonuses+ accrued Guaranteed Additions

Surrendering the policy

Surrender is allowed only after the policy becomes paid-up, i.e. after one full year’s premiums have been paid. On surrendering the policy, higher of the Guaranteed Surrender Value (GSV) or the Special Surrender Value (SSV) would be paid.
  • GSV would depend on the policy year in which the plan is surrendered and is expressed as follows:
    (Total premiums paid* GSV Factor of premiums) + (vested Guaranteed Additions + reversionary bonus * GSV Factor of additions and bonus)
  • The SSV factors would be declared by the company based on its performance and would be calculated as follows:
    SSV Factor * (Reduced Paid-up Sum Assured + vested Guaranteed Additions + vested reversionary bonus + Terminal Bonus, if any)
    Paid-up Sum Assured = Basic Sum Assured * (number of premiums paid/number of premiums payable)


Revival is allowed within 2 years from the date of the first unpaid premium. The policyholder would be required to pay the outstanding premium and any interest charged by the insurer to revive his policy.
