|Maturity Benefit||The Kotak Invest Maxima plan provides the policyholder with maturity benefits, at the end of the policy term. The Maturity benefit is equivalent to the amounts in both the Main account as well as the Top-up Account. The plan will provide the policyholder with survival units once every 5 years, after the policy has completed 10 years. Survival units are basically 1% or 2% of the Single or Annual Premium.|
|Surrender Benefit||There is no surrender benefit offered as such, and the policyholder isn’t allowed to make withdrawals within the first five years of the policy period. This is true in the case of most Unit Linked Insurance Plans. The policyholder will only be able to partially withdraw the amount in his funds after the policy has completed five years. Surrender or discontinuance of the policy will entail benefits after a period of 5 years. Surrender of the policy before the 5-year period will entail benefits after the completion of 5 years of the policy.|

The policyholder can discontinue the policy within the freelook period if he/she isn’t satisfied with the terms of the policy.|
|Grace Period made available to the policyholder||The policyholder will be provided with a Grace Period of 30 days from the premium payment due date. If the premium payment isn’t made before the due date, the policyholder will get the opportunity to revive the policy within a two year period. The policyholder will receive a notice within 15 days from the premium due date (in case the payment has been missed) and will have 30 days to respond.|
