While calculating the surrender value of any endowment type plan, following are the formulas that become applicable.

If you are thinking of surrendering the plan,my advise is to consider following point before taking a decision.

  • You are losing valuable insurance coverage and that too taken at a lower premium as the policy was started several years ago.
  • Surrendering of Jeevan Labh plan can bring in a loss as the surrender value can be lower, especially if the premium paid period is for a shorter period.
  • If your policy has lapsed and you are unable to revive your policy, a better option is to keep the policy as paid up and get the maturity amount after the end of the term. You will have insurance cover based on the paid up value and full accrued bonus along with paid-up value of the policy can be availed at the time of maturity.
