Can i change the nominee?

Sure You can change your nominee any time. Please approach your nearest branch office to do nomination change.

Hi Anish, Sorry that I’am posting my query on one of your replies. I could not find the other way to do it. I have a Jeevan Anand – 149 policy. Bought in 2013 Jan. I have paid premium for 6 yrs totally. I want to surrender this policy now as i do not wish to continue with it. What will be the returns i will get on surrendering it. SA is 700000 & yearly premium is 35895. Table & Prem paying term as mentioned on policy is 149 / 71 / 21. I’m unable to get clarity from the agent who sold me this policy. Please advise.

Premium paying term is 21 years and you have an insurance coverage up to age 100 which is 71 Years from date of commencement. That is what mentioned.

Hi Sir, For Jeevan Anand 149 Policy, the Policy Term is 71 Yrs and Premium Paying Term is 16 Yrs. Can I surrender the policy after 16 yrs ? Will I get full amount or only partial ?

You will get ‘Maturity amount’ on the sixteenth year, which includes Sum Assured + Bonus + Final addition bonus. If you surrender the policy on 16th year you will lose the ‘life long insurance coverage’.

Shall i get money after my premium paying term

You will get Maturity Benefit after the premium paying term. Maturity amount includes Sum Assured + Bonus + Final Additional Bonus. Life long cover continues even after premium paying term.

here the maturity date mentioned is 2072, but paying term is 12 years. So, when i will get the benefits or final settlement. Insurer is healthy.

Hello – I have Jeevan Anand 149 Policy. There is an endorsement that states “Double Accident benefit and extended disability benefit under this policy is restricted to Rs. NIL only. What does this mean?

Double accident benefit and extended permanent disability is available as an inbuilt benefit under this plan and shall be available during the term of the plan and also till age up to 70 years. Maximum DAB & EPDB cover will be Rs. 5 lakhs. So no such endorsement is possible in this plan. Please clarify with your nearest LIC branch office.

i could have worded incorrectly. It is not an endorsement. Those words that i had mentioned was stamped and the word “NIL” has been hand-written. This is my SECOND jeevan anand policy. The branch office said that for Jeevan Anand the maximum DAB is 5 lakhs only. But that is not mentioned in the schedule…i mean there is no statement mentioning like irrespective of the number of Jeevan Anand Policies taken, the max DAB is 5 lakhs. Any thoughts here?

Yes, what you said is right. Maximum DAB allowed under Jeevan Anand policy is 5 Lakh and if you have already covered that 5 lakh in your first policy itself, then no DAB shall be available in your second policy. That is the reason why DAB is given as NIL in your second policy.

But, no where in the schedule i see a statement like “irrespective of the number of Jeevan Anand Policies taken, the max DAB is 5 lakhs”. Is this been mentioned somewhere, that i am overlooking?

I asked the agent for 50Lakhs sum assured policy. He gave it to me in 26 differnet policies with different paying terms for each. He also told that I don’t have to pay any premiums after 17 years even though the payment terms in all but one policy is more than that. I don’t understand why that was done so. Any advice?

I think the agent has given a series of policies maturing every year from the 17 th year. There are some advantages as well as disadvantages while splitting policies in this manner. One advantage is that as each policy mature every year it will work as a pension plan and there will not be any tax burden on the pension received in this manner as the maturity amount of the policy is tax exempted under section 10(10D). On the other hand if you take a regular pension plan, the pension received will be taxable and will be added to your income. You may loose higher Sum Assured rebate if each of the policies are splitted into small policies. You will have to pay premium for entire period but the agent may be presuming that the premium can be paid from the maturity amount paid every year.

Agent should have communicated clearly about the implications of giving multiple policies.

Dear sir, what is the procedure for availing accident benefits under this plan in case of hospitalization ?

Accident coverage available under the plan is for accidental death and permanent disability (which is irreversible) only. No hospitalisation benefit shall be available under accident benefit.

is it possible to change the premium paying term and what is the process?.

You can change the term subject to certain conditions. You can reduce the term of the policy but cannot increase it. As all policies do not allow term change please give the plan details for further information.

LIC do not have any 5 Year policy.

mail me lic have 5 years policy (abhijitmitra111@gmail.com)

The only plan with the 5-year term is Jeevan Nidhi (Single premium)plan from LIC of India.

I am paying a yearly premium of 49,872 and the number of terms is 21 and Sum Assured is 10,00,000. Using the premium calculator, the maturity benefit showed a value of 21,29,000 (SA 10,00,000 Bonus 1029000 & FAB 1,00,000).

So does this mean I will be receiving an amount of 21,29,000 after completion of the 21 terms with additional life long coverage of 10,00,000?

Exactly. This is the indicative maturity amount as per the current bonus rates and you will have a life long coverage of 10 lakh.

Dear Sir, I hope you are doing well. I would like to have a clarification in my policy. Kindly find the below details of my policy and let me know, when i will get the maturity money and how much amount will i get ? What other benifits will i get. Thanks

Age – 31

Sum Assured – 1000000

Premium Paying Term – 11 Years

Policy Term – 69 Years

Date of Maturity – 07/07/2081

Instalment Premium – 54304 (Per Year – 108608)

Premium Mode – Half-Yearly (January & July)

Commencement Date – 07/07/2012

Date of Last Payment – 07/01/2023

The maturity date of your policy is 07/07/2023 and you will get 10 lakh + accrued bonus at that time. Please use calculator provided to get indicative amount.

what amount is recoverable after premium payment term in jeevan anand plan -149?

whether the amount recoverable is maturity amount or less?

and when this amount could be recovered?

After premium payment term, Jeevan Anand matures and Sum Assured + bonus + final addition bonus shall become payable. Life long coverage equal to Sum Assured shall be available there after.

Hello Sir, Thank for the clear information about the maturity and still my confusion remain about the final settlement, try to get the information form many of LIC officers and they have no clear information.

As you clearly illustrate that Return amount from LIC will be 36,35,000 /-, please clarify that physically i will get 36.35 Lack or 25.35 Lack only. because 10 Lack is belongs to life time insurance coverage of 10 lack, if i wish to cancel that coverage, should i eligible to get the 36.35 Lack ?

Regards,

SANDESH

Referring to above my question, i have been informed from agent that i shall get almost 50 lacks during my maturity period ( My policy is 20 Lacks for 16 year, as per your calculation ill eligible to get around 34.5 lack+ 20 lack life time coverage.

This is the calculation based on current bonus rates. Maturity benefit includes 20 lakh sum assured + Accrued bonus + FAB ( approx 34.5 lakh) and life long coverage of 20 lakh. So total benefit is likely to the tune of 54.5 lakhs.

Hi, I have a Jeevan Anand(Plan-149) of sum assured 3 lakhs which will mature in 2034. Expected amount I will get on maturity? as well what does it means as a life coverage, I mean post maturity I believe I won’t get any more amount in future? or is it post maturity only death benefit will be there which will be same as sum assured and which will be given to my nominee.

Dear Sourav,

Please use the calculator provided in the post to get the indicative maturity amount.

At the time of maturity you shall receive Sum Assured + Bonus + Final Additional Bonus as a one time payment. Life long coverage means your nominee is entitled to receive on more sum assured as death benefit even after maturity. Only death benefit is payable after maturity.

Thanks a lot. Its clear to me and the calculator is helpful too. Is there any such plans available in todays date. Also could you please suggest any good policy for children of age 9 years?

Thank you for nice words of appreciation… A similar New Jeevan Anand plan (Plan 815) is available for sale from LIC of India. Read all you need to know about New jeevan Anand Plan 815 from this link. Please read the article New Jeevan Anand – a critical review also for more information.

Hi Mr.Anish, My LIC plan 149; maturity amount 1200000Rs; term 21 years; 5 years completed as of now. Its showing 297000 as vested bonus. I have below questions:-

1. Vested bonus + sum assured only we get after maturity or some other bonus?

2. After maturity policy will cover life time right? – Means for normal death sum assured will pay again??

3. What will be minimum and maximum possible amount at my plan maturity for 12lakh sum assured policy?

Hi Suresh,

1. You will receive the SA + Bouns + FAB fully at the time of maturity only.

2. Sum Assured is paid at the time of death even after maturity.

3. In Jeevan Anand (Plan 149), the maturity amount is the sum total of Sum Assured + Accrued Bonus + Final additional Bonus(if any). Use the calculator provided to get the indicative maturity amount. You can see from the calculator that the bonus amount as per current rates is 1234800 for 12 lakh sum Assured and the final additional bonus amount is 120000. So the indicative maturity amount is Rs. 25,54,800

Hi Mr.Anish, My LIC plan 149; maturity amount 1200000Rs; term 21 years;

In case i want surrender the policy; how much i can get back?

Note: I have paid premium for 5 years – 3lakh so far.

Get the surrender value quotation from your nearest LIC branch office. Surrendering a policy in between is not a good decision as you loose your valuable insurance coverage taken at the rate provided at a lower age. Further, You will not receive the accrued bonus in full also. My recommendation is not to surrender a policy without sufficient reasons to justify it.

Gd morning sir.

I have jivan anand 149 plan of 10 lacs from jun 2011 and i paid premium around 3.20 lac and now i want to surrender this policy. Approx how much surrender value i will get and someone told me that accumulated bonus not given during surrender time.

Hi Ganga Ram,

You are right. The accumulated bonus is payable to you only at the time of maturity. If you Surrender your policy in between you will receive only a percentage of the accrued surrender value. And the percentage is called surrender value factor which generally varies between 30 to 100 % depending on the period elapsed. You can get a detailed surrender value quotation from your nearest LIC branch office.

Hi Yogesh,

I assume that the sum assured of your plan is Rs. 10,00,000 based on the premium mentioned by you. So The maturity returns on the 16 th year will include Sum Assured of 10 Lakh and the bonus for 16 years and Final addition bonus. You can use the calculator provided to get the indicative figures. As per the calculator the indicative return is Rs.17,45,000 based on current bonus rates. You will be eligible for a life long insurance coverage equal to sum assured (10,00,000) So the total amount payable from LIC shall be to the tune of 27,45,000 as per current bonus rates.

The maturity benefit shall be paid to your account on the maturity date.

thank you very much

Can you please explain me should I pay tax for this, if so should I pay 30 % tax for the whole amout or just for my profit? In this case I have more than 3Lakhs and got an amout less than that only. On this why should i pay 30% tax. This is worrying me. Can you please help me out with this.

Hi Aravindh,

Section 10(10D) benefit (Exemption of maturity benefit of Insurance policies from income tax) will not be applicable for the 5-year term, as the premium paid per year will be higher than 20% of Sum Assured in this case. But you will have to pay tax only on the appreciation. ie (Maturity – total Premium) If you are already in the 30% slab you will have to pay 30% of appreciation. If not, you will have to pay tax depending on your tax slab. any more clarifications? You can get more information on tax rules applicable to insurance policies from this article.

HI I am holding Jeevan Anand (Plan-149) policy. But i am not very clear about the returns / benefits of it.

i am paying 5163/- per quarter. which started 12/06/2010.

i have to pay for total 25 yrs. so what is the benefits i am going to get.

can you please ans me in detail…

Please click on the calculator link to open the Jeevan Anand calculator to calculate maturity returns.

Now when I look back, I guess taking Jeevan Anand 149 policy would have been better, my agent sold me Endowment Assurance policy plan 14 policy in April 2003, sum assured 220000 for 18 years. I see that Jeevan anand would have been good. Not sure, did he sold me right policy or fooled me. Thanks MOHAN

Jeevan Anand is a good policy. It provides lifelong coverage. The endowment policy is (Jeevan Anand – Lifelong coverage).

When will I get the Maturity amount ?

Do I have to wait till 26/12/2079?

Please reply…

The maturity shall be available on completion of 25 Years ie 2030.

Hello Anish Je…….

Heartening to see this good work. Thank you so much. The benefits calculator for 149 is so helpful. It really made my day.

I took this policy in 2009 when I was 44 plus at SA of 25 L. My paying term of 12 years will probably end in 2020 and the policy will mature in 2021. My age then will be 56. Except a few delayed premiums and unfortunately taking a loan against this , the rest all went well. For some financial reasons I would like to surrender the policy at maturity in the hope of commuting the SA otherwise available until 100 / death whichever is earlier. From a chart in the comments above I presume that I will get only about 30% of the SA as SV at 56 which seems quite a small amount. I have two issues :-

1. Is commutation easily available at maturity,

2. Is it advisable from the cover perspective to surrender and use the money while still alive. I asked a friend he advised not to surrender. But my understanding is that one can reinvest this judiciously along-with the policy benefits and leave some assets for the nominee which together can prove a good investment with some annual returns. For example an apartment , a shop etc. Yes , it may depend on personal goals and tastes and preferences, but what is preferable from the insurance point of view.

Thank you sir and wishing you all the best

Kindest regards,

Mohammed

Dear Mohammed, All the options are open.. Think well and take a decision. Happy to understand that the calculator was useful to you.

Hello Sir,

I have taken JEEVAN ANAND POLICY 149

Date of commencment of Policy:28.08.2005

Paying Term : 23

Premium Amount per year : 49085/-

Date of last payment :28/02/2028

When will I get the maturity amount & how much ?

The maturity of the plan is after the premium paying term and it will be after the completion of 23 years. Please use this calculator to get likely maturity amount.

Dear Anish,

I have a Jeevan Anand Plan 149 for SA 3,00,000.00 . I have been paying the Premium from 2010 for Rs. 15,341.00. I have paid 9 years. If I surrender the policy now, How much I will get ?

Please contact the nearest branch office to get surrender value. Please read the article and get a clear idea of the plan and then decide on surrendering.

Hi Anish,

I have purchased LIC Jeevan Anand 149 in 2010 when I was 27 year old.I have 21 policies each with SA 1 lakh and premium payment term varying from 23 years to 43 years for 1st to 21st policy.So premium pay amount for all policies vary accordingly. Year of maturity for all is 2083.I pay for all policies combined on a quarterly basis.My Query is, is it possible to surrender all 21 policies by 2033 when 1st policy premium term is over and still get the benefits of Accrued Bonus + FAB + SA together . Also what will happen to life cover in that case?

Surrendering all your policies will bring in huge loss to you. Further, you will not get the ‘LIfelong coverage’ which is the highlight of this plan.

I think Agent’s intention was to provide you a type pension from 23 rd year to 43 rd year. Purchasing policies in this manner have certain advantages as well as disadvantages. The advantage is that you will get a tax free annuity and disadvantage is that you will lose Sum Assured rebate provided for higher sum assured when taken as a single policy.

Thank You for your reply.

Dear sir,

does this plan149 cover a natural or heart attack death even at the age of 80 or so?

Dear Sir,

Hello sir,

I took jeevan anand 149 policy in 2013, I was 27 years old then.

Paying term is 20 years

Policy term is 73 years.

Total 3 lakhs of policy.

Paying around 16k every year.

So when will I get the maturity amount?

What this policy term mean?

Does it mean I will get maturity amount after 73 years?

Please help me out.

Thanks in advance.

Dear Aswini,

Jeevan Anand is a plan having lifelong insurance coverage, which is arbitrarily considered as ‘up to 100 years’ of age. You took the policy when you were 27 and 100-27 gives 73 years. The maturity of the policy is after the premium paying term and in your case, it is after 20 Years. You will be getting a Sum Assured + Bonus + FAB at the time of maturity. Use this calculator to get maturity benefits.

Thank you.

Hi took jeevan Anand when I was 25yrs old in 2012.. sum insured 4,00,000 premium paid is 21500 yearly.. for 20yrs …. policy maturity is 2087

kindly let me know how much I might get after 20yrs ..

Please use this calculator to get expected maturity returns.

Hi Anish

My term says 78 and the calculator is not allowing to put more than 30 yes..my understanding was it’s 39yrs,half yearly I pay premium of 5794,sum assured-5L and doc- Mar/2013. Could you please help me understand the terms, till when I should be paying premiums and when can I get the LIC amount when all the bonus?

You are eligible for an insurance coverage up to age 100. Actual term of the policy is your premium paying term. Maturity shall be available at the end of the premium paying term.

Can I find my premium payment period anywhere on the LIC receipt and as you said 22yrs,so I should be paying the premiums until 2035?

There is an error in my reply. I have edited my reply please check it. I presume that you have taken the policy at the age of 22. The term of the policy is available in the policy bond itself.

Sorry for multiple questions but I feel it’s only you who can help me here to understand and thanks for your quick responses.Yes,when the LIC commenced I was 22yrs old and just one clarification what I want is, till when I should be paying my premiums?bcoz as per my dad I should be paying it untul I am 60, that’s very long period (39yrs).

Dear Sir, I was enrolled in Plan 149 with the commencement date October,2013 with yearly premium for sum assured 5 lack.

Premium was discontinued from 2017 on wards ( last paid in October 2016). I am not interested to continue with the policy. My I know whether I may refund any part of the payment maid so far?

Looking for your reply.

Hi Gireesh,

Jeevan Anand is a good policy and I don’t find any reason to discontinue it. You are getting lifelong insurance coverage in this scheme. Surrendering a policy can bring in a big loss. If you want to know the surrender value please contact the nearest branch office. As the policy is now in paid-up status you can get the paid-up value + accrued bonus at the time of maturity.

Hi Anish,

I have a Jeevan Anand – 149 policy. Bought in 2013 Jan. I have paid premium for 6 yrs totally. I want to surrender this policy now as i do not wish to continue with it. What will be the returns i will get on surrendering it. SA is 700000 & yearly premium is 35895. Table & Prem paying term as mentioned on policy is 149 / 71 / 21. I’m unable to get clarity from the agent who sold me this policy. Please advise.

Please contact the nearest LIC branch office to get the surrender value amount. By the way, Jeevan Anand is a good policy and I don’t find any reason to surrender it. Do you have a better insurance-investment option? You will lose valuable insurance coverage at the premium rate as per your age 7 years back. Think well before deciding.

Sir I joined jivan Anand 149 plan

5year paying term

If I want amount after Finishing of paying term so how much I will get.

You will be receiving Sum Assured + Bonus after the premium paying term. Please refer to the chart given below for the surrender value of lifelong coverage.

hi sir,I have a Jeevan Anand 149 policy bought in sep 2013,,paid premium for 2 years after that due to some reasons didn’t paid premium till now……today I went lic branch office.there I got an information I.e.,total amount of premium 85912,late fee :17333,GST:3119,total revival amount payable:106365…..they said I won’t get even a paisa if I surrender my policy…need ur valuable suggestion …thankyou

You cannot surrender any life insurance policy if it has not acquired paid up value. The minimum period required to acquire paid-up value is 3 years. As you have not paid the premium for three years you cannot surrender the policy. Further, if you don’t revive the policy, you will lose the premium paid.

So the only option available for you is to revive the policy and make it paid for more than three years.Once revived you can either continue the policy or keep it as paid up till maturity and receive proportional maturity benefit.Dear sir

I have taken the policy of LIC149 1st Jan2013 and it’s continue what will be my maturity.my primium 9069/- quarterly. And sum insured 500000/-, policy term is 16year

Use this calculator to get likely maturity amount.

Hello Sir,

I took jeevan anand 149 policy in 2009, I was 18 years.

Paying term is 16 years

Policy term is 82 years.

Total 3 lakhs of policy.

Paying around 20k every year.

So i want to surrender the policy and invest the amount in mutual funds (due to personal commitments).

Can i surrender now? if yes how much loss will i incur? i read 30% loss from total premiums paid till now, i need some valuable information from you.

Thanks in advance.

You can get the surrender value of your policy from the nearest branch office. But I would suggest you to continue the plan and invest some other money in the mutual fund. If you cannot set aside any more money, then keep this policy as paid up and receive the maturity amount after the completion of the term.

Commencement date : 28/10/2013

Premium Paying Term : 21 Yrs

Policy Term : 75 Yrs

Age at the time of commencement : 25 Yrs

Date of Maturity : 28/10/2088

Hi Anish,

I hold policy jevan anand (149).

age at entry : 27

premium paying term : 10 years

sum assured : 1000000

By using the calculator, i get FAB value as 0. what is the criteria to be eligible for FAB ?

As of now, policies with term higher than or equal to 15 years are eligible for Final Addition Bonus. So a 10-year policy is not eligible for FAB.

Hi Vinu,

Thank you for notifying me the error. I have updated the program so that you can enter term up to 35 years. I will be updating it for the term beyond that soon. Please use this calculator.

2. You can reduce the term of the plan if you need. You can approach your branch office to reduce the term. Reduction in term is possible but increase in term is not allowed.

3. You can change the nominee of your policy any time. Approach your branch office. Read more here.

4. The maturity amount is completely exempted from income tax as per section 10 (10D). Read more on income tax rules applicable for LIC policies here.

Thanks for your prompt response and updating online calculator.

Dear Mr. Anish,

I’m holding two policies with same date and features (Details as mentioned above) but agent are different. While calculating total premium need to be paid with the help of your online calculator, realize that I need to paid total premium of Rs.26215/- surplus than a single policy.

Can I merge these two policies with a single one? If so please guide me..

Thanks in advance

You cannot merge two policies after purchase. You will have to continue the plan as such. The difference in premium is due to the loss of high Sum Assured rebate which may not be available while splitting the policies.

Dear Anish,

I am Srinivas, i am paying yearly amount 42334/- for jeevan anand 149 policy. I need to pay 16years and started in 2008 till now i paid 11 premiums and i need to pay 5 more premiums. The sum assured is 6,00,000/-. Kindly provide me the full details after completion of my premiums like how much and when i will get the full amount. Your inputs are very great to me.

Thanks in advance and your supprt.

Best Regards

Srinivas.

Hi Srinivas,

You can use this calculator to get the expected maturity amount of Jeevan Anand Plan. Please supply the details of your policy such as Sum Assured, Term and Age at the time of taking the policy on the calculator. If you still have any doubts, please ask.

Hi Anish,

Thank you for the resourceful website. I am very impressed by you taking the time to respond to individual comments here.

I hope you can help with my query too. I have 5 Jeevan Anand (149) policies with premium terms maturing one after the other (i.e.,16-20 years). I took these policies in 2013 when I was studying/working abroad temporarily (i.e., an Indian citizen, temporarily working abroad; NRI). Since then, I became a permanent resident in the foreign country and will soon be becoming a citizen of that country (i.e., will be losing my Indian citizenship).

Once I lose my Indian citizenship:

1. Will I still be able to collect the benefits (SA+Bonus+FAB) after Maturity period, even if I am not an Indian citizen?

2. Will my nominees in India still be able to get the death benefits, if I pass away in the foreign country?

3. Can I still continue to pay my policy premiums even if I am not an Indian citizen?

4. If I won’t get the benefits of this policy because I Iost my citizenship status before policy maturity, can I cancel the policy on these grounds?

5. If I cancel the policy, how much of my premiums will I get back (premiums have been paid up-to-date so far).

I appreciate your valuable input on these questions and thank you again for maintaining such an excellent resource for the less informed people like me.

Thank you for your nice words of appreciation.

(1) You can collect the maturity benefit of your policies without any problem (even if you are not an Indian citizen) as long as you maintain a savings bank account in India.

(2) Nominees are eligible for death benefits even if the death occurs in a foreign country.

(3) You can continue your policy from your NRI(E), NRI(O) or SB account in India even if you are not an Indian Citizen.

(4) NA

(5) No need to cancel the policy in these grounds.

Further to add, foreign Nationals of Indian origin (FNOIs) can take an Insurance policy from India any time.

Thank you very much for the clear and timely answers, Anish! A few follow-up questions.

1. I beleive NRIs cannot hold a regular SB account in India but only NRE and NRO accounts. If i do not have any of these accounts, are there any restrictions on opening an NRE/NRO account to get the LIC benefit, after renouncing indian citizenship?

2. Assuming I survive the maturity period, can i request LIC to deposit the maturity amount to my nominee (who is Indian citizen with regular SB account) at that time, instead of opening a new NRE/NRO account myself?

Just a suggestion: Would you be kind enough to create a separate blog post on this topic – LIC policies after renouncing Indian Citizenship? I believe many people who have immigrated to other countries will benefit from your expertise from such a post and become aware of any specific regulations they need to comply with.

Hi pkay,

NRI’s and Foreign Nationals of Indian Origine can open following types of accounts in India.

a) Non-Resident (External) Rupee Account Scheme (NRE Account);

b) Foreign Currency (Non-resident) Account (Banks) Scheme (FCNR(B) Account);

c) Non-Resident Ordinary Rupee Account Scheme (NRO Account); and

d) Special Non-resident Rupee Account (SNRR Account).

As per FEMA regulation, an NRI should convert his savings account to NRO or NRE account immediately on his status change to NRI.

If he has not opened an account in India before renouncing Indian Citizenship, he can very well open an NRO account for carrying out bona fide rupee transactions.

Foreign nationals coming to India for employment or as a tourist may open an NRO Account. The account may be opened with funds remitted from outside India or by the sale of foreign exchange brought into India.

It may be a savings, current, fixed or recurring deposit account.

The permitted credits into NRO Account include:

• Inward remittances from outside India;

• Legitimate dues in India

(2) No Insurance company can pay the maturity amount to the nominee. A nominee can receive only death claim proceedings. Read more here.

I shall write an article on this subject as you have suggested. Thank you.

Hi Anish,

Thank you for writing this down so clearly. I was finally able to understand how this policy works.

Here is my question:

I have 25 149 policies each maturing a year after I turn 50 with SA ranging from 1,00,000 to 2,00,000. Can the death benefits availed for each policy? To clarify – if I pass away after 70, will LIC give 25L (assuming 1L SA per policy) or just 1L?

Happy to know that the article has helped you. I assume that your policy was completed as multiple proposals to create a pension plan where each policy get matured every year. While completing such policies a multiple proposal addendum has to be attached to the proposal where details of all the policies taken together have to be mentioned. So your insurance coverage for each proposal will get added up to give you a single coverage. If it has been done like this while completing the policy you will get 25 lakhs + accrued bonus in all the policies as insurance cover. You can check the EDMS image of the proposal submitted at the time of taking the policy at your branch office to confirm this.

If you find that it is not in order, Submit an application mentioning the details to the branch manager to regularise the coverage immediately. In 99% of cases, it would have done properly.
