Revival of rider(s), if opted for, will be considered along with revival of the basic policy and not in isolation.
Paid-up Value :
If at least three full years’ premiums have been paid and any subsequent premiums be not duly paid, this policy shall not be wholly void, but shall continue as a paid-up policy. The Basic Sum Assured under the policy shall be reduced to such a sum, called Paid-up Sum Assured and shall bear the same ratio to the Basic Sum Assured as the premiums paid bears to the total number of premiums payable i.e. Basic Sum Assured *(number of premiums paid / number of premiums payable).
This Paid-up Sum Assured along with vested simple reversionary bonuses, if any, is payable on the expiry of policy term or in case of prior death. The reversionary bonuses already accrued to the policy as on the date of paid-up will remain attached to the policy. A paid-up policy will not accrue any further bonuses. In case of death after the policy term Paid-up Sum Assured will be paid.
Rider(s) do not acquire any paid-up value and the rider benefits cease to apply, if policy is in lapsed condition.
The policy can be surrendered for cash provided atleast three full years’ premiums have been paid. The Guaranteed Surrender value during policy term shall be a percentage of total premiums paid (net of service tax) excluding extra premiums and premiums for riders, if opted for. This percentage will depend on the policy term and policy year in which the policy is surrendered
Loan can be availed under the policy provided the policy has acquired a surrender value and subject to the terms and conditions as the company may specify from time to time.
This policy shall be void i. If the Life Assured (whether sane or insane) commits suicide at any time within 12 months from the date of commencement of risk and the Corporation will not entertain any claim under this policy except to the extent of 80% of the premiums paid excluding any taxes, extra premium and rider premiums, if any, provided the policy is inforce.
ii. If the Life Assured (whether sane or insane) commits suicide within 12 months from date of revival, an amount which is higher of 80% of the premiums paid till the date of death (excluding any taxes, extra premium and rider premiums, if any,) or the surrender value, provided the policy is inforce, shall be payable. The Corporation will not entertain any other claim under this policy.
