Now we’ll understand the Death and Maturity Benefits of LIC Jeevan Lakshya Policy with the help of an example :
Name : Mikhil
Age : 30
Basic Sum Assured : Rs. 1,00,000
Term : 25 Years
Premium Payment Term : 25 – 3 = 22 Years
Annual premium : Rs. 3,500 + Taxes = Rs.3,657
(This example is totally an assumption of ours just to help you out to understand this Policy better.)
Based on above data there will be 2 cases as follow :
If Mikhil dies after 5 Policy years
Total Premium Paid by Mikhil in 5 Policy Years = Rs. 18,285
The nominee would receive :
Annual Benefit of 10% of Sum Assured i.e. Rs. 10,000 from the 5th year till the 24th year of policy.
110% of Sum Assured i.e. Rs. 1,10,000 at the end of the 25th year Along with the Simple Reversionary Bonus and Final Additional Bonus.
If Mikhil survives till the end of the maturity of LIC Jeevan Lakshya Policy,
Total Premium Paid by Mikhil in 25 Policy Years = Rs. 91425
Mikhil would receive :
The lump-sum amount of Sum Assured i.e. Rs. 1,00,000 along with the Simple Reversionary Bonus and Final Additional Bonus.
Lets assume that the Simple Reversionary Bonus = Rs. 45 per 1,000 Sum Assured that would be : Rs. 45 × 100 × 25 = Rs. 1,12,500
And Final Additional Bonus = Rs. 50,000
Then the amount wil be :
Rs. 1,00,000 + Rs. 1,12,500 + Rs. 50,000 = Rs. 2,62,500.
