How does it work?

The customer must decide on the following while purchasing the LIC Aadhaar Shila Plan:

  1. Basic Sum Assured – This is the level of security you desire. You can choose between Rs. 75,000 and Rs. 3,00,000 as a minimum volume.
  2. Policy Term – This is the time frame for which you want to be protected. The term will last anywhere from ten to twenty years.
  3. Premium Payment Term – The definition is the same as the policy term.

Based on your age, the basic Sum assured, and the policy term you want. Then, the amount of your annual Premium will be determined.

The LIC Aadhaar Shila Plan has many advantages.

Death benefit

If the Life Assured dies during the policy period and all due premiums have been charged, the following will happen:

“Sum Assured on Death” is due if you die within the first five years.

If a policyholder dies after five years but before the policy’s maturity date, the “Sum Assured on Death” and any Loyalty Addition, if any, are payable.

Where “Sum Assured on Death” is the greater of 10 times annualised premium, Sum Assured on Maturity as described in 1. b) below, or the absolute amount guaranteed to be paid on death, which is 110 per cent of the Basic Sum Assured.

105 Per cent of annualised Premium paid to the nominee of the insured person in case of death.

If declared, Loyalty Addition will be paid out as part of the Death Benefit if you die within the first five years of the policy.

An Example of the LIC Aadhaar Shila Plan

Priya Dixit, 30, is considering buying this plan. However, he continues with the following strategy:

The Sum assured is Rs. 1,00,000, and the term is 20 years.

Term of Premium Payment = 20 years

His annual premium is Rs. 3,641 + taxes = Rs. 3,805 based on these criteria. In this case, we’ve used a current tax rate of 4.5 per cent.

Death Benefit

Scenario 1: What If Priya dies after four years of the policy?

Her nominee receives the highest score in each of the following categories:

  • Basic Sum Assured – Rs. 1,00,000
  • The Annualized Premium multiplied by ten equals Rs. 36,410.
  • 105 percent of all premiums charged up to the death date = 105 percent x 4 x 3,641 = Rs. 15,292

The largest of the above is Rs. 1,00,000, which will be awarded to the nominee. No Loyalty Additions will be charged because the scheme hasn’t been in force for five years.

Scenario 2:If Priya dies after 15 years of the policy,

Her nominee receives the highest score in each of the following categories:

  • Basic Sum Assured – Rs. 1,00,000
  • The Annualized Premium multiplied by ten equals Rs. 36,410.
  • 105 percent of all premiums charged up to and including the date of death = 105 percent x 15 x 3,641 = Rs. 57,346

The most expensive is Rs. 1,000,000. The package is eligible for Loyalty Additions since it has completed five program years. As a result, the nominee will be awarded Rs. 1,00,000 plus Loyalty Additions. Only when the worth of Loyalty Additions is declared can it be determined.

Maturity Benefit

Scenario 3:- Anurag will receive the Basic Sum Assured + Loyalty Addition as announced if Priya lives to the end of the 20-year policy term.

Total Premiums Paid = Rs. 76,097 (including taxes)

Basic Sum Assured = Rs. 1,00,000

Loyalty Additions – As declared.
