LIC New Jeevan Suraksha -I

LIC New Jeevan Suraksha-1 Plan is a non-unit linked pension plan with bonus deferred annuity plan. The collection is created to provide pension for old age after Vesting Date. In this plan, the premium is paid through the entire policy term, i.e. till the pension starts from the Vesting Date. At the beginning of the plan, the policy holder gets to select a Notional Cash Option which along with accrued bonuses forms the maturity proceeds.

25 per cent of the entire maturity proceeds including the bonus can be withdrawn by the policy holder, and receive a lump sum amount on Vesting. The remaining 75 per cent needs to be converted into annuity. A policy holder can choose from 5 annuity plans. An additional 3 % rebate would be provided on the purchase price of the annuity at the Vesting Date. At the time of Vesting, the annuity rates of LIC Jeevan Akshay VI Plan would be considered.

All premiums paid plus interest on the same is returned, if the policy holder dies before the start of pension. If the demise of policy holder occurs after the Vesting Date, then it entirely depends upon the pension option whether any Death Benefit would be payable or not.
