Reliance Nippon Life Education Plan

Reliance Nippon Life Education Plan is a non-participating, non-linked, child insurance plan that ensures that you do not compromise on the goals for your child’s future, and offers you funds as and when you need them. The plan offers guaranteed benefits when the policy matures; this will protect your child even in your absence.

The policyholder can choose from four benefit payout options, to suit his/her insurance requirements:

Plan coverage - What the Reliance Nippon Life Education Plan covers

Based on the child’s future education requirements, the policyholder can choose any one of the four payout options when the policy is in the inception stage. Once this choice is made, it cannot be modified. The payouts vary by the payout option chosen, as shown below:

Payout / Payout Option selected Self Starter Post Graduation Degree Professional Degree Career Starter
At maturity (100% * BSA) + GA + GMA (50% * BSA) + GA (25% * BSA) + GA (20% * BSA) + GA
At the end of the 2nd year   (50% * BSA + GMA) * MDF 25% * BSA 20% * BSA
At the end of the 3rd year     25% * BSA 20% * BSA
At the end of the 4th year     (25% * BSA + GMA) * MDF 20% * BSA
At the end of the 5th year       (20% * BSA + GMA) * MDF

Here, BSA = Base Sum Assured, GA = Guaranteed Additions, GMA = Guaranteed Maturity Additions, MDF = Maturity Deferment Factor

This implies that when the policyholder selects the Self Starter option, he/she receives a single lump sum payout to fund the child’s education. If the Post Graduation Degree option is chosen, he/she receives two annual payouts for the child’s post graduation course. If the Professional Degree option is selected, the policyholder receives four annual payouts for the child’s professional degree course. If the Career Starter option is chosen, he/she will receive five annual payouts that funds the child’s education and offers a career launchpad as well.

The Reliance Nippon Life Education Plan provides the following coverage:

Maturity Benefit When the policy term ends, irrespective of the survival, the plan provides a Guaranteed Maturity Benefit (GMB) based on the payout option selected at the inception of the policy. GMB = BSA + Sum of GAs + Guaranteed Maturity Additions (GMA) where, Base Sum Assured (BSA) - This is the minimum benefit that the policyholder selects at the policy inception stage. Guaranteed Addition (GA) - The policy accrues GA of 2% of the Base Sum Assured at the end of each policy year. This continues till the end of the policy term, as long as the policy is in-force. Guaranteed Maturity Addition (GMA) - GMA is paid when the policy matures, as long as it is in-force. GMA = 2% * BSA * Policy Term
Death Benefit The main purpose of the Reliance Nippon Life Education Plan is to fund the future education of the child. If the policyholder passes away while the policy is in-force, an immediate lump sum benefit will be paid out to the nominee, according to the Death Benefit option selected at policy inception. Payment of the future premiums will stop and all benefits under the plan will continue according to the payout option selected. Death Benefit Payout Options - At the inception of the policy the policyholder selects any one of the Death Benefit Payout options mentioned below:
  • Option 1 - At the death of the life assured, 100% of the Death Benefit amount is paid to the nominee immediately.
  • Option 2 - At the death of the life assured, 50% of the Death Benefit amount is paid as a lump sum amount. The remaining 50% is paid in equal annual installments over the next 10 years. Each installment is equal to 12.94% of 50% of the total Death Benefit amount.

Policy surrender If the policy has reached surrender value and the policyholder opts to discontinue the policy, he/she will be provided the surrender value. This amount will be the higher of the Special Surrender Value (SSV) or the Guaranteed Surrender Value (GSV). Once the policy is surrendered, it is terminated and cannot be reinstated.
