Sum Assured on Death’ becomes payable in case of death claims provided the death occurs before the maturity date and the policy is in force at the time of death.

For Regular premium and limited premium policies

Sum Assured on death shall be the highest of

  • 7 times of annualized premium; or
  • 105% of all premiums paid as on date of death; or
  • Absolute amount assured to be paid on death.

For Single premium policy,

Sum assured on death shall be the higher of

  • 125% of the single premium.
  • Absolute amount assured to be paid on death.

(All rider premiums and extra premiums will be excluded for arriving at the premium paid)

Level Sum Assured vs Increasing Sum Assured

Two options are available under this plan to chose ‘Sum Assured at Death.’

Option 1: Level Sum Assured

Absolute amount assured to be paid on death shall be an amount equal to Basic Sum Assured which remains the same throughout the policy term.

Option 2: Increasing sum assured

Absolute amount assured to be paid shall remain equal to Basic Sum Assured till the completion of the fifth policy year. Thereafter it increases by 10% of basic sum assured each year from the sixth policy year till fifteenth policy year, whichever is earlier. From sixteenth policy year onwards the ‘absolute amount assured to be paid on death’ shall remain constant at twice the basic sum assured.

Lets us consider an example of a one crore sum assured policy with a 20-year term and the risk coverage will be as given below.

Accident Benefit Rider

Accident Benefit Rider shall be available under Regular and Limited Premium Payment policies only. You can opt this rider at the time of inception or any time later within the premium paying period.

If this benefit is opted for and if the life assured is involved in an accident, leading to death and such incident occurs within 180 days from the date of the accident, then an additional amount equal to the Accident Benefit Sum Assured shall become payable. Maximum accident benefit sum assured shall be One Crore inclusive of all existing policies (excluding Jeevan Shiromani plan where additional one crore benefit shall be available).

Option to take Death Benefit in Instalments.

The death benefit can be received in installments over the chosen period of 5 or 10 or 15 years, instead of the lump-sum amount if required. This option can be exercised by the life assured during his lifetime also. The amount opted by the life assured can be either in absolute value or as a percentage of the total claim proceeds payable.

The interest rates applicable for arriving at the installment payments under this option shall be as fixed by the corporation from time to time.
