One thought on “Lic Jeevan Saral Policy – Plan No 165 Review

  1. Shyam Ratan Das

    I have searched all the websites and no one has mentioned about how to calculate the maturity sum assured on surrender. I have four Jeevan saral policy and paying 120000 per year as premium in four policies. Date of commencement is 28/07/2009 which means I already paid 8 installments. I am confused if I should surrender the policies now or should pay for another 2 year to complete 10 year to have the benefit of loyalty addition. But to calculate the LA we need to know the maturity sum assured on surrender. Please guide if anybody have any clue.
