Key Features of LIC Jeevan Amar

This policy comes with a lot of great features and flexibility options. One of the best benefits of LIC Jeevan Amar that it offers flexibility to choose the sum assured option. All the LIC Term Insurance plans have great features & benefits.

1. There are two options available to choose the sum assured. One is the ‘level sum assured’ and the second one is ‘increasing sum assured’. You can choose one of the options at the time of purchasing the policy. What is it, I have explained it below in detailed.

  • Level Sum Assured: Here in Level Sum Assured, the coverage sum assured will the same throughout the policy term that you selected. It means, if your sum assured amount is 50 Lac for a policy term of 40 years then it will remain the same throughout 40 years.
  • Increasing Sum Assured: This is the best thing about the policy. Here in this option, the sum assured amount will increase with the policy term after the first 5 years. It means for the first 5 years there will be no change in sum assured, is called BSA (Basic Sum Assured). But after 5 years the sum assured will increase by 10% of the BSA every year for the coming next 10 years. After the 15th policy year, the sum assured will not increase. The sum assured amount becomes twice of the BSA in the 15th policy year. This increase will continue under an enforce policy till the end of policy term; or till the Date of Death; or till the fifteenth policy year, whichever is earlier.

2. Flexibility to choose premium payment options, Choose according to your comfort. There are 3 payment options available to choose, have a look to them below:

  • Single-Premium: Here in this option you just need to pay a single premium at once and, get worry-free for future payment. According to my opinion, this option is good for those who have good cash in hand and don’t have a regular source of income.
  • Regular Premium: Herein this option you have to make a payment every year until the policy term. It means if you buy the policy term 30 years, you have to pay premium till to that term. This option is very good for those who have a regular income and able to make yearly payments.
  • Limited Premium Payment: There are two options available in limited premium payment. 1) Policy Term minus 5 years for Policy Term [10 to 40] years. 2) Policy Term minus 10 years for Policy Term [15 to 40] years.

3. Special rates for women. It means LIC is offering great rates to the women.

4. Very attractive high sum assured rebate.

5. There are two types of premium rates in the LIC Jeevan Amar policy. For smoker and non-smoker. If you are a non-smoker then premium rates for you will depend on findings of the Urinary Cotinine test. Smoker premium rates will be applicable for all the rest.

Note: Once you choose death benefits options, it can not be changed later.
