When the policy or plan is active, the insured has the option of settling his maturity payout in a lump sum amount or easy instalments divided in 5,10 or 15 years. This contingency can be opted for after the policy term has been completed and under the following modes and amounts 9example stated below): (*Standard T&C Apply)

Paid-up Policy

If the policy is paid up for up to 3 years premium, then the paid-up sum assured also reduces proportionately. Now this plan cannot be considered as a void policy and can be reduced to the following options:

Death Paid-up Sum Assured

In case of unfortunate death of the policyholder, the death pay-out will the total number of premiums paid towards the policy/ Total number of premium years payable multiplied by the sum assured on death.

Maturity Paid-up Sum Assured

In case of Maturity of the policy the calculation will be as follows: (Total Number of premiums paid/Total amount payable) multiplied by (Sum Assured on Maturity + Total Survival Benefits which are to be paid as per the rules and regulations of the plan) Minus Total amount of benefits already paid out to the policyholder.

Taxes

Taxes will be imposed as per the updated taxation and statuary rules and policies.  As per the Income-tax Act, 1961 any amount of tax that is payable by the policyholder, should be paid in excess of the amount of premium in that specific financial year besides the premium which needs to be paid too separately. This amount of Tax paid does not affect the calculation of benefits payable under the plan. “Tax benefit is subject to changes in tax laws”.
