    LIC plan 162 S. A. 10,00,000 G..A. Shown Rs. 1,250,000 should be Rs. 2,50,000

      I have checked and every thing is showing properly. Can you explain me where it is mentioned. Illustration on guaranteed addition is shown for a sum assured of 5,00,000 so the guaranteed addition will be 25000 * 5 = 125000.
      Please check..

    Can I withdraw my policy after 16 years paying term completed. Then how much amount will I get.

    • January 6, 2020 at 4:36 pm

      Surrender value can be obtained from the nearest branch office. But remember that surrendering a Jeevan Shree policy will bring huge loss.

    Hi Anish – I will be completing the 16 years payment for LIC’s Jeevan Shree – 1 (Plan 162) in 2020, Sum Assured was 5,00,000 and the maturity amount shown in above calculator is 11,55,000 at the end of 25 years. My question is how much would be the surrender value (approx) if I withdraw now ….. If I am getting the bonus till year 16 then my rough calculation says I will get about 8.5 lakhs now, is the correct (approximately)

    • August 25, 2020 at 1:13 pm

      Surrendering a policy before the term is a loss to the policyholder. It results in monitory loss as well as a loss of valuable coverage taken at a lower age and naturally with a lower premium. As surrender has to be discouraged we do not provide surrender values of policies. If you need it you can get it from your nearest branch office.

    Hi Anish,
    I started my LIC policy – Jeevan Shree – 1 (Plan-162) in March 2012.
    I was 35 years old when I started this policy in 2012.
    Today I’m 43 years old.
    The Policy Term is 25 years, and the Policy Paying Term is 16 years.
    The Maturity of the policy is in the year 2037.
    I also have Accident Benefit coverage.
    My assured amount is Rs.25,00,000 (twenty five lakh rupees).
    The installment Premium is Rs.1,35,180.00 paid once a year.
    The Bonus, Guaranteed Addition shown today in my account when checked online on the LIC customer portal is Rs.10,22,500 (rupees ten lakhs twenty two thousand five hundred)

    1. On you portal, when I enter my age as 35 years, and enter the policy term as 25 years, policy payment term as 16 years, Sum assured as 25,00,000, Accident benefit-Yes, then I get the following:
    Yearly Premium as Rs.1,14,645. This is lower than the installment Premium that I’m paying currently which Rs.1,35,180.00 paid once a year. Could you explain why is this difference?
    2. Considering my policy details that I have shared with you, could you provide me a break up of my Maturity amount, which I think may include Total Guaranteed Addition, and Total Bonus ?
    3. What will be my GUARANTEED MATURITY Amount?
    4. What will be the minimum guaranteed Bonus amount that I will get at maturity?
