This policy not only makes provisions for the family of the Life Assured in event of his early death but also assures a lump sum at a desired age. The lump sum can be reinvested to provide an annuity during the remainder of his life or in any other way considered suitable at that time.
Premiums are usually payable for the selected term of years or until death if it occurs during the term period.
Being an endowment assurance policy, this plan is apt for people of of all ages and social groups who wish to protect their families from a financial setback that may occur owing to their demise.
The amount assured if not paid by reason of his death earlier will payable at the end of the endowment term where it can be invested in an annuity provision for the rest of the policyholder’s life or in any other way he may think most suitable at that time.

By paying a small extra premium of Rs.1 per Rs.1000/- sum assured per year he or his family are entitled to the following benefits on death or permanent disability caused by accident. Even students above the age of 18 years can avail of this benefit.
If payment of premiums ceases after at least THREE years’ premiums have been paid , a free paid-up policy for a reduced sum assured will be automatically secured provided the reduced sum assured, exclusive of any attached bonus, is not less than Rs. 250/-. The reduced sum assured will become payable on the event as stipulated in the policy.
Is there anything extra payable besides the sum assured at the time of claim settlement? Yes, but only if it is a ‘with profits’ policy. Every year the Life Insurance Corporation distributes its surplus among policyholder to ‘with profits’ polices in the form of bonuses. Substantial bonuses have been declared in the past after each valuation of policy liabilities.
