The premium of a Life Insurance Corporation of India policy depends on a number of factors, ranging from the age of the individual, the type of plan that he/she has chosen, the sum assured that one wants at the end of the tenure, whether the applicant is a smoker or a non-smoker, gender, and the applicable service tax (GST). The premiums vary between insurance policies, and if the applicant is younger, the lesser the premium that will have to be paid. For example, if one applicant is 18 years old and the other 42 years old, it’s obvious to assume that the 42-year-old applicant will have to pay a higher premium. Also, if the applicant is a smoker, he/she will have to pay higher premiums as the risk of health issues and death is higher. Some policies offer premium discounts for female policyholders or applicants, but that is subject to the terms and conditions of the policy.
