Details About Premium
Grace Period: There is a limited timeframe of 30 days from the due date of the unpaid premium to pay all dues, without interest. For premium payments through monthly mode, the Grace Period is 15 days. If premiums remain unpaid at the end of the Grace Period, the policy lapses from the due date of the first unpaid premium.
Policy Termination or Surrender Benefit: Surrender Value of the policy is acquired when the policyholder pays all due premiums for the first three policy years. Termination of the policy occurs on payment of the Surrender Value or the Death Benefit or Maturity Benefit.
Free Look Period: Policyholders have a limited free look period of 15 days from the date of receiving policy documents to review the policy. This timeframe is extended to thirty days if the policy was sold via distance marketing. If the policyholder does not wish to continue with the policy, then he or she has to return the policy stating their objections. The customer will receive the policy premium minus a proportionate premium for the risk borne by the company, including as any extra expenses, such as towards a medical examination or stamp duty charges.
The policyholder can opt to receive the Maturity Benefit in monthly installments, in which case he or she will receive 2.5% more than the annual installment. The Maturity Benefit can also be received as a lump sum amount at the Maturity Date.
After paying at least three full years of premiums if the policyholder is unable to pay any more premiums, he or she receives one full year of auto cover. If premiums remain unpaid during the Auto Cover period, the policy will be converted to a Paid-up policy.
