The Jeevan Saathi Plan is an endowment assurance plan that provides financial protection against the lives of both, the husband and the wife. The maturity amount is paid on the completion of the policy term if both or either one of the two survive.
Policyholders are expected to meet the eligibility criteria as set by the insurer. The parameters generally include the minimum and maximum age for entry and minimum and maximum age at maturity of the policyholder.
On the death of the policyholder, the insurer is liable to pay a lump sum amount to the beneficiary called the sum assured. Policyholders should ideally choose plans with a sum assured that would help his/her dependents in times of need.
The policyholder pays a nominal amount to the insurance company at regular intervals, which is known as the premium. The premium for this plan is paid until the completion of the policy term or until the death of one of the policyholders.
