LIC’s Premium Waiver Benefit Rider (UIN: 512B204V01), on the life of proposer may be opted for by payment of additional premium.
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 by paying all the arrears of premium together with interest (compounding half-yearly) at such rate as fixed by the Corporation from time to time, subject to submission of satisfactory evidence of continued insurability.
The Corporation reserves the right to accept at original terms, accept at revised terms or decline the revival of a discontinued policy. The revival of discontinued policy shall take effect only after the same is approved by the Corporation and is specifically communicated to the Policyholder.
Revival of rider, if opted for, will be considered along with revival of the Basic Policy and not in isolation and shall be subject to underwriting.
For policies with premium paying term less than 10 years if after at least two full years' premiums have been paid and for policies with premium paying term 10 years or more if after 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 Sum Assured on Death under paid–up policy shall be reduced to such a sum called “Death Paid-up Sum Assured” and shall be equal to [(Number of premiums paid/Total Number of premiums payable) x Sum Assured on Death]
The Sum Assured on Maturity under paid-up policy called as “Maturity Paid-up Sum Assured” shall be equal to [(Number of premiums paid/Total Number of premiums payable) x (Sum Assured on Maturity plus Total Survival Benefits payable under the policy)] less Total amount of Survival Benefits already paid under the policy.
The policy so reduced shall thereafter be free from all liabilities for payment of the premiums, but shall not be entitled to participate in future profits. However, the vested Simple Reversionary Bonuses shall remain attached to the reduced paid up policy.
In the case of a paid up policy, no future survival benefits shall be payable and the applicable paid up value along with the vested Simple Reversionary Bonuses, if any, shall be payable only in lump-sum on the expiry of policy term or on death of life assured, if earlier.
Rider shall not acquire any paid-up value and the rider benefit ceases to apply, if policy is in lapsed condition.
Loan can be availed under the policy provided the policy has acquired 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.
Free Look period:
If the Policyholder is not satisfied with the “Terms and Conditions”, the policy may be returned to us within 15 days from the date of receipt of the policy bond stating the reasons of objections. 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 rider, if any) for the period on cover, expenses incurred on medical examination and special reports (for basic plan), if any, and stamp duty charges.
