I woke up this morning to a WhatsApp message from a friend. A terse “Let me know your comments” was added to a PDF of LIC Jeevan Umang and its benefit illustration.

“OK. Here it comes…again.”

Read about LIC Jeevan Shanti Plan

I sit down, open the PDF on my computer and start reading through the information. If I decide to take all the information presented as a layman, LIC Jeevan Umang looks like a fantastic proposition.

Here are the key highlights of the plan as offered to my friend.

  • Current Age – 29 years
  • Policy Term – 71 years (that is till age 100 as is expected for Whole life policies)
  • Sum Assured – Rs. 1 crore
  • Premium payment term: 15 years
  • Year 1 premium: 818,695
  • Premium Years 2 to 15: Rs. 801,067
  • Assured 8% return on Sum Assured from year 15, that is, Rs. 8 lakh per year till maturity / death

The big pitch of this plan is that the interest rates the world over are reducing significantly (currently 1 to 2%). As India develops further, the interest rates are going to get lower here as well. Hence, why not lock in the assured return of 8% now?
