    The salient features of the Shriram Life Wealth Plus Plan are described below:

    Fund Options The policyholder can choose to invest in any one or a combination of the following funds:
    • Preserver - Very low risk with a steady flow of returns
    • Defender - Low risk with good returns
    • Balancer - Moderate risk with better returns than low risk funds
    • Maximus - High risk with high returns
    • Accelerator - Very high risk with higher returns
    • Tyaseer - Very high risk fund with significantly high returns
    Apart from these, a Discontinued Policy Fund also operates.
    Charges under the plan The Shriram Life Wealth Plus Plan is associated with the following charges:
    • Policy Administration Charge
    • Fund Management Charge
    • Premium Allocation Charge
    • Discontinuance Charge
    • Mortality Charge
    • Service Tax Charge
    Auto Transfer Option (ATO) This option enables the policyholder to reduce the risk associated with investment in a fund with a volatile NAV. Initially, premiums will be invested in a low risk fund, the Preserver. The money will then be gradually transferred into the chosen investment portfolio. The policyholder can choose the 6-month or 12-month Auto Transfer Option for investment of the regular premiums. If the 12-month Auto Transfer Option is selected, 1/12 of the allocated premium is invested in the chosen fund and the rest is invested in the Preserver fund. After a month, 1/11th of the fund in Preserver is moved to the chosen fund. This process continues till all the funds in the Preserver fund are transferred. The process is repeated whenever the premium is received. The policyholder can choose to cancel this option during the policy tenure, if required. When ATO is opted for, the policyholder can withdraw partially and switch between funds. Switching from the existing fund to the Preserver fund, is however, not allowed. ATO facility is available absolutely free of cost with the Shriram Life Wealth Plus Plan.
    Settlement Options When the policyholder survives till the end of the term, instead of receiving the maturity benefit, the policyholder can opt to withdraw either fully or partly any number of units from the fund, within a period of 5 years from the maturity date (settlement period). During this time, the fund management charge will be deducted as usual. The death benefit during this time is only the fund value. The policyholder will bear all investment risks during the settlement period. Fund switching and partial withdrawals are not allowed during the settlement period.
    Alterations The following alterations are allowed under the Shriram Life Wealth Plus Plan:
    • Reduction of the sum assured
    • Addition of riders during the term of the policy
    The sum assured can be reduced up to the following values:
    • For entry age less than 45 years, maximum of:
      • 10 times the annualised premium, or
      • 0.5 * annualised premium * policy term
    • For entry age of 45 years and above, maximum of:
      • 7 times annualised premium, or
      • 0.25 * annualised premium * policy term
    Once the sum assured is reduced, it cannot be increased again. The basic premium can also not be altered. Riders can be added to the plan when a minor life assured attains majority during the term of the policy. An alteration fee of Rs.200 will be charged for the same through cancellation of units from the fund.
    Partial withdrawals Partial withdrawals are possible only after the fifth policy anniversary, if all due premiums have been paid. In the case of a minor life assured, partial withdrawals are allowed when he/she reaches majority. The minimum amount of withdrawal each time is Rs.10,000. A partial withdrawal charge of Rs.100 is levied each time. Partial withdrawals are made first from the unit fund built up from the top-up premiums. Following this, partial withdrawals are made from the unit fund built up from the basic premiums.
    Fund switching The policyholder can choose to switch from one fund to another anytime during the policy term. Fund switching can be done twice a year without attracting any charges. For each subsequent switch, Rs.100 will be charged.
    Top-up premiums The policyholder can choose to pay an additional premium to enhance the fund value. Each lump sum payment should be at least Rs.5,000. A premium allocation charge of 2% of the top-up premium is deducted from the lump sum and the balance amount is allocated for units. Top-up premiums cannot be withdrawn from the unit fund for a period of 5 years after payment, except in the event of policy surrender. Top-up premiums are also not allowed during the last 5 years of the policy. No discontinuance charges are levied on top-up premiums.
    Policy discontinuance Discontinuance during the lock-in period: If the policyholder does not pay due premiums within the grace period, a notice is sent to him/her within 15 days from the expiry of the grace period. He/she is required to choose any one of the following options within 30 days of receipt of the notice:
    • Policy revival
    • Complete withdrawal from the plan, without risk coverage
    During this time, the life coverage under the plan remains unchanged.
    • If the policyholder decides to revive the policy, it will be done according to approved underwriting policy.
    • If the policyholder does not choose any option within 45 days of expiry of the grace period, he/she is deemed to have completely withdrawn from the policy. The life cover ceases to exist in this case. The fund value and the top-up fund value is transferred to the discontinued policy fund after discontinuance charges are deducted. At the end of the lock-in period, the discontinued policy fund value is paid to the policyholder. If the life assured dies before the end of the lock-in period, the discontinued policy fund value is paid to the nominee.
    Discontinuance after the lock-in period: If the policyholder does not pay due premiums within the grace period, a notice is sent to him/her within 15 days. The policyholder is then expected to exercise any one of the following options within 30 days:
    • Revival of policy
    • Complete withdrawal from the plan without any risk cover
    • Convert the policy to paid-up status. The paid-up sum assured in this case is as follows:
    Paid-up sum assured = Sum assured * (Number of premiums paid / Total number of premiums payable)
    Policy revival A discontinued policy can be revived within 2 years from the date of discontinuance. The policyholder will have to pay all the unpaid premiums for the same.
    Non-negative claw-back additions In order to comply with reduction in yield, the insurance company may decide on non-negative claw-back additions to be added to the unit fund value from time to time.
    Free-look period If the policyholder is not in agreement with the terms and conditions within the policy documentation, he/she can return the policy back to the insurer within 15 days of receipt of the documents. The reasons for the return should be clearly mentioned. The insurer will then refund the paid premiums after deducting the charges and expenses incurred for stamp duty and medical examination.
