The plan allows a flexible premium payment term thus enabling the policyholder to afford the plan easily. Top-ups can also be paid under the plan to increase the Fund Value.

Key features of the plan

  • The minimum death benefit and Vesting Benefit under the plan are guaranteed.
  • Premiums can be paid only once, for a limited tenure or throughout the term of the plan.
  • Loyalty Additions are added to the Fund Value on maturity which further enhances the vesting corpus.
  • The premium payment frequency and term can be changed during the plan tenure.
  • Additional premiums can also be invested in the plan through top-ups.

How does the plan work?

Step 1 – the policyholder chooses the premium amount, the plan term, premium paying term and frequency.

Step 2 – the premiums paid are deducted for premium allocation charges and then invested in the Pension Builder Fund.

Step 3- the policyholder can make additional investments into the plan through top-ups.

Step 4 - in case of death during the plan term, the death benefit is paid which is higher of the Fund Value or Guaranteed Death Benefit. The Guaranteed Death Benefit is 105% of total premiums paid till death.

Step 5 – if the insured survives the plan tenure, the maturity benefit is paid which is higher of the Fund Value or the Guaranteed Vesting Benefit. The Guaranteed Vesting Benefit is equal to 101% of premiums paid during the term. The policyholder has to avail the vesting benefit in any of the options provided under the plan.

Example

Option 1 – If Tarun dies during the term, higher of the Fund Value including any top-up premium Fund Value or 105% of premiums paid till death is paid to the nominee.
