LIC’s Dhan Varsha Plan closing on March 31

LIC’s Dhan Varsha Plan is a Non-Linked, Non-Participating, Individual, Savings, Life Insurance plan which offers a combination of protection and savings. This plan provides financial support for the family in case of unfortunate death of the life assured during the policy term. It also provides guaranteed lumpsum amount on the date of maturity for the surviving life assured.

In the event of an unfortunate death, you will also be able to financially keep a cushion for your nominee.

Death Benefit: Death benefit payable, on death of the life assured during the policy term after the date of commencement of risk but before the date of maturity, shall be “Sum Assured on Death” along with accrued Guaranteed Additions. “Sum Assured on Death” shall depend on the option chosen by the policyholder as under: 

Option 1: 1.25 times of Tabular Premium for the chosen Basic Sum Assured 

Option 2: 10 times of Tabular Premium for the chosen Basic Sum Assured

Calculation on 1st and 2nd option
