    Reduced Paid-up Benefit After the policy reaches surrender value, if the policyholder stops paying premiums, the policy is converted into a Reduced Paid-up plan. The life assured will continue to enjoy the benefits under the policy in this scenario.
    High Sum Assured Rebate The policyholder gets a premium discount if he/she opts for a high sum assured. The discount is Rs.2 per Rs.1000 sum assured, if the total sum assured opted for is Rs.5 lakh and above.
    Simple Reversionary Bonus The insurance company may declare a bonus at the end of each financial year. This bonus is expressed as a percentage of the sum assured. The bonuses accrue from the first year onwards and is paid either at death or policy maturity.
    Interim Bonus If a claim is raised mid-way through a financial year or before the Simple Reversionary Bonus is declared, an Interim Bonus may be paid by the insurer.
    Terminal Bonus The insurance company may pay a Terminal Bonus at the death of the life assured, as long as all premiums have been paid. The bonus is paid along with the Maturity Benefit and will be a percentage of the sum assured. Policies that are Reduced Paid-up or surrendered will not be eligible for the Terminal Bonus.
    Vesting if the life assured is a minor If the policy is taken on the life of a minor, it vests when he/she reaches 18 years of age. The life assured will become the policyholder from that date onwards.
    Grace Period The insurer offers a grace period of 30 days from the premium payment due date for policies with yearly, half-yearly, and quarterly premium payment frequencies. The grace period for policies with monthly frequency is 15 days. The policyholder can pay the due premiums within the grace period and retain the policy benefits.
    Policy lapse The policy will move into lapsed status when the following conditions are met:
    • For a policy term of 16 years, if the premiums for the first 2 policy years are not paid within the grace period.
    • For policy term of 20 and 24 years, if the premiums for the first 3 policy years are not paid within the grace period.
    Once the policy lapses, no benefits will be payable.
    Revival of policy A Reduced Paid-up or lapsed policy can be revived within 2 years from the unpaid premium due date.
    • If the policyholder pays all due premiums and handling charges within 6 months, the revival will take effect without having to produce evidence of good health.
    • If the policyholder pays all due premiums and handling charges after 6 months, the revival will take effect only after the policyholder produces evidence of good health. He/she may also be required to pay extra premiums based on underwriting guidelines.
    • During the period the policy is in lapsed status, it will not accrue any of the declared bonuses. The benefits will, however, be reinstated once the policy is revived.
    • If the lapsed policy is not revived within the revival period, it will be terminated without any payouts.
    • If a policy in Reduced Paid-up status is not revived within the revival period, it will continue in that status till it reaches maturity.
    Surrender of policy
    • If the policy tenure is 16 years, the policy will reach surrender value when all the premiums for 2 consecutive years are paid.
    • For policies with tenure of 20 and 24 years, the surrender value is acquired when the premiums for 3 consecutive years have been paid.
    The surrender value is the highest among the Guaranteed Surrender Value and the Special Surrender Value. The surrender value is paid as a lump sum amount and the policy terminates following this payout.
    Reduced Paid-up Policy After the policy attains surrender value, if the premiums are discontinued, then the policy is moved to Reduced Paid-up status when the grace period ends.
    • The policy will then not be eligible for any future bonuses.
    • The rider benefits may or may not cease. This is based on the rider features.
    • When the policy is in Reduced Paid-up mode, survival benefits are not payable.
    • The sum assured under the plan will be the Reduced Paid-up Sum Assured, and is calculated as follows:
    Reduced Paid-up Sum Assured = Basic sum assured * (Total paid premiums/Total premiums payable throughout the term)
    • A Paid-up policy may be reinstated within 2 years.
    • The maturity benefit payable will be the Reduced Paid-up Sum Assured minus the survival benefits already paid out plus Accrued Reversionary Bonuses.
    • The death benefit payable is the Reduced Paid-up Sum Assured plus the Death Benefit mentioned above in the plan coverage section.
    Free-look Period Once the policyholder receives the policy documentation, he/she can review the terms and conditions within. If the policyholder disagrees to any of these terms, he/she can return the policy back to the insurance company within 15 days. This interval is referred to as the free-look period. The free-look period for policies that were purchased through distance marketing channels is 30 days. The policyholder will also have to state relevant reasons for the return of the policy. Once the insurer receives the returned policy, it will provide a refund to the policyholder. The value of the refund will be the sum of the paid premiums minus the expenses incurred by the policyholder on medical examination and stamp duty.
