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.
Policy Termination or Surrender Benefit: The policy may be surrendered any time during the policy period. The Surrender Value is the Fund Value minus the Discontinuance Charge, if any. If the policy is surrendered before the completion of five policy years then the insurance cover ceases and the Surrender Value equal to Fund Value minus Discontinuation Charge will be kept in the Discontinued Fund of the policy. If surrender of the policy happens after completing five policy years, the insurance cover ceases, the Surrender Value is paid immediately and the policy is terminated. Termination occurs on payment of 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 in case 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 fund value as on the date of cancellation plus non-allocated premium plus charges levied by cancellation of units 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.
With the Settlement option, the policyholder can opt to receive the maturity benefit in periodical payments for five years after the date of maturity rather than as a lump sum.
