Reliance Nippon Life’s Guaranteed Money Back Plan

As is evident from the name itself, Reliance Nippon Life’s Guaranteed Money Back Plan is a traditional money-back plan which pays the Sum Assured in instalments during the term of the plan. Apart from the survival benefits, the plan also pays Guaranteed additions to enhance the corpus. Two inbuilt riders also increase the scope of coverage extended by the plan.

Key features of the plan

  • Guaranteed money backs are paid in the last 5 years of the plan.
  • Guaranteed Loyalty Additions are added to the plan corpus during the plan tenure and Guaranteed Maturity Additions are added on maturity of the plan. Both these additions increase the benefit payable.
  • There are two inbuilt riders under the plan. One is the accidental death benefit rider which pays an additional Sum Assured in case of accidental death. Another is the premium waiver benefit which waives the premiums in case of death of the insured while the plan continues till maturity.
  • Premiums can be paid regularly or for a limited tenure.
  • Premium discounts are allowed for choosing a higher level of Sum Assured.

How does the plan work?

Step 1 – the policyholder chooses the Sum Assured, the plan term, the premium paying term and frequency. Based on the insured’s age and the above factors, the premiums are calculated.

Step 2- money back benefits are paid in the last 5 years of the plan @ 15% of Sum Assured.

Step 3 – if the insured survives the plan tenure, the maturity benefit is paid which is 40% of Sum Assured and accrued Guaranteed Loyalty Additions and a Guaranteed Maturity Addition.

Step 4 – if the insured dies during the plan tenure, higher of the Sum Assured, 10 times the annual premium or 105% of premiums paid is paid as death benefit irrespective of the money back benefits already paid. In case of accidental death an additional Sum Assured is paid. The future premiums are waived off while the plan continues. On maturity, the maturity benefit is paid.

Example

Option 1 – guaranteed Loyalty Additions @ 2% of Sum Assured which is Rs.10, 000 accrues every year of the term. Money back benefits of Rs.75, 000 are paid every year from the 16th policy year. On maturity, Rs.2 lakhs is paid along with the accumulated loyalty additions of Rs.2 lakhs (Rs.10, 000*20) and guaranteed maturity addition of Rs.1lakhs.

Option 2 – Rishika dies accidentally in the 6th policy year. The Sum Assured of Rs.5 lakhs is paid immediately along with accidental Sum Assured of Rs.5 lakhs. Premiums are waived off. Money back benefits are paid in the last 5 years. On maturity, the promised maturity benefit is paid.
