How Can You Check the Surrender Value?
The surrender value for any LIC policy can be checked with the help of this easy formula:
[Basic sum assured (Number of premiums paid/Total number of premiums payable) + Total bonus received] x Surrender Value Factor.
In order to understand this better let’s take the help of one example:
A policy is having a surrender value of 30% including bonus and premium paid, and is applicable after 3 active years. Here the premium paid in the first year and any accidental benefits will be excluded. Assuming the policy started in 2010 with a term of 15 years, the basis assure sum is INR.4,00,000 and the premium paid every year is INR.30192. Total bonus till date is INR.70000. Considering policy owner has paid only 5 premiums till now, the surrender value will be 30% +final bonus as on today.
Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) is the nation’s largest and perhaps the most trusted insurance company. With a customer base spread across demographics as diverse as the country itself, the company has kept with the times, constantly coming up with insurance solutions best suited to the changing lifestyles and, just as important, perpetually improving its service standard to maintain a good relationship with the consumers.
LIC is a wonderful insurance tool for people from all walks of life. But simply buying a policy isn’t enough. Strange as it might appear, there are a lot of consumers that end up paying extra and lose out on the full benefits of their policy simply because they forget to pay their insurance premium on time! While SMS and customer care services are a wonderful way to access your LIC policy details, going online and registering is still recommended—it’ll set you up to receive all the important reminders and notifications, keeping you updated on your LIC policy status no matter how busy your schedule!
