LIC's New Money Back Plan-20 years is a participating non-linked plan which offers an attractive combination of protection against death throughout the term of the plan along with the periodic payment on survival at specified durations during the term. This unique combination provides financial support for the family of the deceased policyholder any time before maturity and lump sum amount at the time of maturity for the surviving policyholders. This plan also takes care of liquidity needs through its loan facility.
For Basic plan
For LIC’s Accidental Death and Disability Benefit Rider
(The Accident Benefit Sum Assured shall be in multiples of Rs. 5000/-)
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 yearly, half-yearly, quarterly modes and 15 days for monthly mode of premium payment.
On death during the policy term provided the policy is in full force, death benefit, defined as sum of “Sum Assured on Death” and vested Simple Reversionary Bonuses and Final Additional Bonus, if any, shall be payable. Where, “Sum Assured on Death” is defined as higher of 125% of the Basic Sum Assured or 10 times of annualized premium. This death benefit shall not be less than 105% of the total premiums paid as on date of death.
The premiums mentioned above exclude tax, extra premium and rider premium, if any.
Survival Benefits: In case of Life Assured surviving to the end of the specified durations 20% of the Basic Sum Assured at the end of each of 5th, 10th & 15th policy year.
Maturity Benefit: In case of Life Assured surviving the stipulated date of maturity, 40% of the Basic Sum Assured along with vested Simple Reversionary Bonuses and Final Additional Bonus, if any, shall be payable.
Participation in Profits: The policy shall participate in profits of the Corporation and shall be entitled to receive Simple Reversionary Bonuses declared as per the experience of the Corporation, provided the policy is in full force.
Additional Bonus may also be declared under the policy in the year when the policy results into a claim either by death or maturity, provided the policy has run for certain minimum term.
LIC’s Accidental Death and Disability Benefit Rider: LIC’s Accidental Death and Disability Benefit Rider can be opted for under an inforce policy at any time within the premium paying term by payment of additional premium and the cover will be available throughout the policy term provided the Policy is inforce for the full Sum Assured as on date of accident. In case of accidental death, the Accident Benefit Sum Assured will be payable as lumpsum along with the death benefit under the basic plan. In case of accidental permanent disability arising due to accident (within 180 days from the date of accident), an amount equal to the Accident Benefit Sum Assured will be paid in equal monthly instalments spread over 10 years and future premiums for Accident Benefit Sum Assured as well as premiums for the portion of Basic Sum Assured which is equal to Accident Benefit Sum Assured under the policy, shall be waived.
However, on surrender of an inforce basic policy (which has acquired Surrender Value) to which this rider is attached, a proportion of additional premium charged in respect of cover after premium paying term shall be refunded.
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 but before the date of maturity 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(s), 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 be equal to [(Number of premiums paid / Total Number of premiums payable) x Basic Sum Assured] 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.
Notwithstanding the benefits available under a fully inforce policy, in the case of a reduced paid up policy, no survival benefits shall be payable and the 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 death of life assured, if earlier.
Rider(s) shall 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”, 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 proportionate risk premium (for basic plan and rider(s), if any) for the period on cover, expenses incurred on medical examination, special reports, if any and stamp duty charges.
Suicide: - This policy shall be void
