LIC’s Bima Jyoti is an individual life assurance savings plan that offers an appealing blend of protection and savings. This plan is both non-linked and non-participating, ensuring financial security for your family in the event of your unfortunate demise during the policy term and a guaranteed lump-sum payment to you, the surviving policyholder, upon maturity. Moreover, this plan caters to your liquidity requirements with a convenient loan facility. You have the flexibility to purchase this plan through offline channels via agents or other intermediaries, as well as online directly through the website www.licindia.in.

Death Benefit

(i) In the unfortunate event of the policyholder’s demise during the policy term before the commencement of the risk, a refund of the premiums paid will be provided, excluding taxes, extra premium, and any rider premium(s), if applicable.

(ii) If the policyholder passes away during the policy term after the commencement of the risk, the Death Benefit will consist of the “Sum Assured on Death” and the accrued Guaranteed Additions. The “Sum Assured on Death” is defined as the higher of either 125% of the Basic Sum Assured or 7 times the annualized premium. The Death Benefit, as described in (ii) above, will not be less than 105% of the total premiums paid (excluding any extra premium, any rider premium(s), and taxes) up to the date of death.

Maturity Benefit

If the Life Assured survives until the specified Date of Maturity and the policy remains in force, the “Sum Assured on Maturity,” along with the Guaranteed Additions, will be paid. The “Sum Assured on Maturity” is equal to the Basic Sum Assured.

Guaranteed Additions

Guaranteed Additions are yearly additions of Rs. 50 per thousand of the Basic Sum Assured for active policies with paid premiums. In the event of the policyholder’s death while the policy is active, the Guaranteed Addition for the year of death is provided for the entire year.

However, if premiums are not paid on time, Guaranteed Additions stop accumulating.

For paid-up policies or policy surrender, the Guaranteed Addition for the year when the last premium is received is added proportionally to the premium amount received for that specific year.
