Main characteristics of LIC’s New Jeevan Anand Plan:

  • The recent Jeevan Anand Plan is an unlinked Protection and an economically viable saving plan.
  • The all new plan is a mixture of Endowment & Whole life policy, which means that it is a Double Benefit Endowment plan.

If the demise takes place post the Policy Term then only the Basic Sum Assured will be payable as Death Benefit.

  • We can go for Accident Benefit Rider by paying little amounts along with the Premium.
  • The new Jeevan Anand plan takes care of all the liquidity needs through its exclusive loan facility.


Advantages of LIC’s New Jeevan Anand Plan:  

  • Maturity Advantage: If the policy holder lives post the tenure of the Policy, then he / she gets the Maturity Benefit e:

Basic Sum Assured + accrued Simple Reversionary Bonus + Final Addition Bonus


Also, the policy continues to offer Life Coverage to the Insured person for the rest of his / her life.

  • Demise Advantage: In case of demise of the policy holder prior to the termination of the Policy Term, the Death Benefit will include:

Sum Assured on Death + accrued Simple Reversionary Bonus + Final Addition Bonus

The same will be paid to the nominee as Death Benefit and the policy will be terminated.

  • Sum Assured on Death: It is defined as higher of 125% of the Basic Sum Assured or ten times the yearly Premium. This death benefit must not be less than 105% of all the premiums paid by the death date.
  • Post Policy Term: Just the Basic Sum Assured will be paid as a Death Benefit whenever the Insured dies and the policy gets concluded from then on.


For Instance: – Vishal has taken New Jeevan Anand Policy for Rs.10,00,000 /- for a period of twenty one years. In case of his demise, his nominee will be paid 125% of the Basic Sum Assured or ten times of the annual Premium (whichever is higher). As in this case the Basic Sum Assured is Rs. 10,00,000, so, 125% of BSA 10,00,000 X 125/100 = 12,50,000 . Assuming that, Vishal paid the Premium for just 5 Years and died, taking Annual Premium as 50,000, then ten times of 50,000 is Rs. 5,00,000/-. As in this case 12, 50,000 is greater than 5, 00,000, the Nominee will get 12, 50,000 as the Death Benefit.

Contribution in Profits:

The policy will contribute in profits of the Corporation and will be entitled to accept easy Reversionary Bonuses stated according to the experience of the Corporation, given that the policy is in full force.

Final (Additional) Bonus can also be affirmed under the policy in the year when the policy results in a claim either by the instance of death or maturity, given that the policy has completed a certain minimum term.

Easy Reversionary Bonus – It is affirmed per thousand Sum Assured every year at the end of Easy Reversionary Bonus each financial year. Once affirmed, they form part of the guaranteed advantages of the plan.
