The Future Generali Bima Gain plan is a non-participating Unit Linked Insurance Plan that offers high returns on investment; the policyholders can opt for a sum assured that is up to ten times of the premium paid by them. This plan provides both high insurance cover as well as an excellent investment opportunity for its customers.
This is a single premium payment policy.
Six varied fund options are on offer to suit the policyholders varying risk appetites.
With such features as switching between funds and partial withdrawals, policyholders can actively control their investment portfolios.
Policyholders can choose to receive the Maturity Benefit as a lump sum or over a period of five years after the maturity date, as under the settlement option.
Details About Premium
Grace Period: The Grace Period is not applicable as it is a single premium policy.
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 if the policy was sold via distance marketing. 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.
The policyholder has an option to receive the maturity benefit in periodical payments for five years after the date of maturity rather than as a lump sum, with the Settlement option.
