LIC Bima Bachat Plan, 8.0 out of 10 based on 1 rating

What is Bima Bachat?

LIC’s Bima Bachat is a money-back policy which offers financial security and assurance to the policy holder and his family. Bima Bachat requires the policy holder to pay only one premium. The amount paid for the premium depends on the duration of the policy taken and life insurance is available till the date of maturity.

What other benefits do I receive during the specified duration of the policy?

For a term of 9 years: The policy holder will receive 15% of the sum assured at the end of every 3rd and 6th policy year.

For a term 12 years: The policy holder will receive 15% of the sum assured at the end of every 3rd, 6th and 9th policy year.

For a term 15 years: The policy holder will receive15% of the sum assured at the end of every 3rd, 6th, 9th and 12th policy year.

What additional benefits do I get upon maturity?

If the policy holder outlives the duration of the policy, at the time of maturity, a single premium payment (excluding extra premium) is made along with loyalty additions, if any.

How much insurance do I get?

The policy holder is insured for an amount equal to the sum assured.

What about the installment received already?

The insurance cover is irrespective of the installments received.

When am I eligible for the guaranteed surrender value?

The guaranteed surrender value is available only after completion of at least one policy year. This value is equal to 90 % of the single premium paid (excluding extra premium).

What other benefits does this insurance cover offer?

Bima Bachat is the only money-back policy that offers a loan facility. The rate of interest for this will be determined from time to time by the corporation. Presently the rate of interest is 9% p.a. payable half-yearly.

It also offers other benefits like the 15 day cooling off period, grace period and revival.

policy:

What incentives do I get for a higher sum assured?

Let’s take an example of a 30 year old with a Bima Bachat policy for 12 years. If the sum assured is Rs 45,000 then he has to pay a premium of Rs 34800.75. But for a sum assured amount of Rs 50,000 he will have to pay a premium of Rs 36734.13 only, thus getting a 5% rebate in premium.

Refer to the table below for other rebate percentages:

Less than Rs. 50,000 NIL
Rs. 50,000 and Less than Rs.1 lakh 5%
Rs. 1 lakh and Less than Rs.2 lakh 7%
Rs. 2 lakh and above 8%

Notes:

i) The above examples are applicable to a *standard non-smoker male/female

(*medical condition, lifestyle and occupation)

ii) *The non-guaranteed benefits (1) and (2) in above illustration are calculated so that they are consistent with the Projected Investment Rate of Return assumption of 6% p.a.(Scenario 1) and 10% p.a. (Scenario 2) respectively. In other words, in preparing this benefit illustration, it is assumed that the Projected Investment Rate of Return that LIC will be able to earn throughout the term of the policy will be 6% p.a. or 10% p.a., as the case may be. The Projected Investment Rate of Return is not guaranteed.

iii) The main objective of the example is that the client is able to appreciate the features of the product and the flow of benefits in different circumstances with some level of quantification.

The maturity benefit is the amount shown at the end of the policy term.

Statutory warning:
“Some benefits are guaranteed and some benefits are variable with returns based on the future performance of your Insurer carrying on life insurance business. If your policy offers guaranteed returns then these will be clearly marked “guaranteed” in the illustration table on this page. If your policy offers variable returns then the illustrations on this page will show two different rates of assumed future investment returns. These assumed rates of return are not guaranteed and they are not the upper or lower limits of what you might get back, as the value of your policy is dependent on a number of factors including future investment performance.”

Extract from section 41 of the insurance act:
(1) No person shall allow or offer to allow, either directly or indirectly, as an inducement to any person to take out or renew or continue an insurance in respect of any kind of risk relating to lives or property in India, any rebate of the whole or part of the commission payable or any rebate of the premium shown on the policy nor shall any person taking out or renewing or continuing a policy accept any rebate except such rebates as may be allowed in accordance with the published prospectuses or tables of the insurer : provided that acceptance by an insurance agent of commission in connection with a policy of life insurance taking out by himself on his own life shall not be deemed to be acceptance the insurance agent satisfies the prescribed conditions establishing that he is a bona fide insurance agent employed by the insurer.

(2) Any person making default in complying with the provisions of this Section shall be punishable with a fine which may extend to Rs.500 / -
