LIC's Jeevan Rakshak Plan is a participating non-linked plan which offers a combination of protection and savings. This plan provides financial support for the family in case of unfortunate death of the policyholder any time before maturity and a lump sum amount at the time of maturity for the surviving policyholder. This plan also takes care of liquidity needs through its loan facility.
For Basic plan
(This plan is only available for standard healthy lives without undergoing any medical examination)
*The total Basic Sum Assured under all policies issued to an individual under this plan shall not exceed Rs. 2 lakh.
For LIC’s Accident Benefit Rider
The Accident Benefit Sum Assured shall be in multiples of Rs. 5,000.
Payment of Premiums:
Premiums can be paid regularly at yearly, half-yearly, quarterly or monthly mode (through ECS only) or through salary deductions over the term of policy.
However, a grace period of one month but not less than 30 days will be allowed for payment of yearly or half-yearly or quarterly premiums and 15 days for monthly premiums.
In case of death of the policyholder during the policy term provided all due premiums have been paid, “Sum Assured on Death” shall be payable, which is the highest of
The premiums defined above exclude service tax, extra premium and Accident Benefit rider premium, if any.
In addition to the above, Loyalty Addition, if any shall also be payable if death occurs after completion of 5th policy year.
Maturity Benefit: Basic Sum Assured, along with Loyalty Addition, if any, shall be payable in lump sum on Survival to the end of the policy term provided all due premiums have been paid.
Participation in Profits: Provided the policy is in full force, then depending upon the Corporation’s experience the policies under this plan will be eligible for Loyalty Addition. The Loyalty Addition, if any, is payable at such rate and on such terms as may be declared by the Corporation, on death after completion of 5th policy year or on Policyholder surviving to the maturity.
Optional Benefit: LIC’s Accident Benefit Rider: Accident Benefit Rider is available as an optional rider by payment of additional premium. In case of accidental death, the Accident Benefit Sum Assured will be payable as lumpsum along with the death benefit under the basic plan
If premiums are not paid within the grace period then the policy will lapse. A lapsed policy can be revived within a period of 2 consecutive years from the date of first unpaid premium and before the date of maturity, as the case may be by paying all the arrears of premium together with interest (compounding half-yearly) at such rate as fixed by the Corporation at the time of the payment, subject to submission of satisfactory evidence of continued insurability.
Revival of Accident Benefit rider, if opted for, will be considered along with revival of the Basic Policy, and not in isolation.
If at least three full years’ premiums have been paid and any subsequent premiums be not duly paid, this policy shall not be wholly void, but shall continue as a paid-up policy. The Basic Sum Assured under the policy shall be reduced to such a sum, called Paid-up Sum Assured and shall bear the same ratio to the Basic Sum Assured as the no. of premiums paid bears to the total number of premiums i.e. Basic Sum Assured *(no. of premiums paid / no. of premiums payable).
This Paid-Up Sum Assured is payable on expiry of the policy term or on Life Assured’s prior death.
Accident Benefit Rider does not acquire any paid-up value and the rider benefits cease to apply, if policy is in lapsed condition.
Loan can be availed under the policy provided the policy has acquired a surrender value and subject to the terms and conditions as the Corporation may specify from time to time.
Taxes including Service Tax, if any, shall be as per the Tax laws and the rate of tax shall be as applicable from time to time.
The amount of tax as per the prevailing rates shall be payable by the Policyholder on premiums including extra premiums, if any. The amount of tax paid shall not be considered for the calculation of benefits payable under the plan.
If the Policyholder is not satisfied with the “Terms and Conditions” of the policy, the policy may be returned to the Corporation within 15 days from the date of receipt of the policy bond stating the reasons of objection. On receipt of the same the Corporation shall cancel the policy and return the amount of premium deposited after deducting the proportionate risk premium (for basic plan and Accident Benefit rider, if any) for the period on cover and stamp duty charges.
Suicide: - This policy shall be void
If the Life Assured (whether sane or insane) commits suicide at any time within 12 months from the date of commencement of risk and the Corporation will not entertain any claim under this policy except to the extent of 80% of the premiums paid excluding any taxes, extra premium and Accident Benefit rider premium, if any, provided the policy is inforce. If the Life Assured (whether sane or insane) commits suicide within 12 months from date of revival, an amount which is higher of 80% of the premiums paid till the date of death (excluding any taxes, extra premium and Accident Benefit rider premium, if any,) or the surrender value, shall be payable. The Corporation will not entertain any other claim under this policy.
