Maturity Benefit:    

LIC Jeevan Surabhi policy matures on your survival to the end of the policy term. All bonuses declared up to maturity date will be paid in a lump sum.

Supplementary/Extra Benefits:  These are the optional benefits that can be added to your basic plan for extra protection/option.  An additional premium is required to be paid for these benefits.

Surrender Value:    

Buying a life insurance contract is a long-term commitment.  However, surrender values are available under the plan on earlier termination of the contract.

Guaranteed Surrender Value:

The policy may be surrendered after it has been in force for 3 years or more.  The guaranteed surrender value is 30% of the basic premiums paid excluding the first year’s premium in case no survival benefit payment has already fallen due. Where one or more survival benefits have fallen due, the guaranteed surrender value will be 30% of the premiums paid on or after the due date of payment of latest survival benefit.

Corporation’s policy on surrenders:

 In practice, the Corporation will pay a Special Surrender Value – which is either equal to or more than the Guaranteed Surrender Value. The benefit payable on surrender is the discounted value of the reduced claim amount that would be payable on death or at maturity. This value will depend on the number of premiums paid and the duration at which surrender value is calculated. In some circumstances, in case of early termination of the policy, the surrender value payable may be less than the total premium paid.

The Corporation reviews the surrender value under its plans from time to time depending on the economic environment, experience and other factors.
