With every plan from LIC in front of you, things should be clearer, now. But if you feel like you are still finding it hard to choose the best insurance plans from LIC then consider these:

1. eTerm insurance plan:

If you want to consider the most affordable plan and still want to stay insured then consider eTerm from LIC.

It’s an “Online insurance plan” that covers your life financially against any threat. In case if any unfortunate thing happens to the life of the insured then his family can always feel safe.

It is the cheapest term plan in the sense that no intermediary is involved. There are no insurance agents or brokers involved. Thus, what you pay is pure premium and no commission. As no commission is paid thus what you get is the most affordable plan in return.

What is this policy…?

  • The insurance plan can be filed online.
  • Policy can be bought for a basic sum assured of Rs.25 lac.
  • People in the age group of 18 to 60 years are eligible to buy the plan.
  • There are no maturity benefits but nominees get the full sum assured on the death of the policy holder.

2. Jeevan Sangam:

To avail guaranteed return, Jeevan sangam is probably your best bet. Its single premium policy that keeps you financially protected for life.

Benefits you receive…

  • On maturity of the policy, not only the insured receives the entire sum assured but loyalty bonuses are also paid.
  • In case of death of the insured, nominees are paid 10 x the value of the single premium paid.
  • Loan facility can be easily availed by keeping the policy as security.
  • If want immediate cash or don’t feel like continuing the policy any further then you can easily surrender the policy. You will be paid 70% of the premium value if the policy is surrendered in the 1st year itself, otherwise 90% will be paid.

3. Jeevan Akshay

Want to cherish your life then invest in Jeevan Akshay and you will bless me forever.

The reason why I favor Jeevan Akshay is because it provides you a fixed sum every single year (annuity) for the rest of your life that starts with your first premium.

Since your annuity starts immediately after the premium payout, this helps you secure your financial life.

What the plan offers you…?

  • You get a fixed sum every single year for life.
  • The policy is a single premium scheme which lets you enjoy for life by just paying once.
  • The plan is highly flexible as you get 7 different annuity options to choose from.
  • Annuity is paid at a standard rate. It is paid for 5 to 20 years with a gap of every 5 years. It doesn’t matter if the insured is alive or not as the annuity is then paid to the annuitant.
  • Though standard plan gives you uniform payouts but with increasing annuity you increase your annuity by 3% per annum. Thus is a very good source to fight inflation.

4. New Children Money back policy:

The plan was only launched in the first quarter of 2015 and has gain popularity since then.

Meant to secure financial future of your kids the plan can help fund their education and marriage. Any child under the age of 0-12 can be covered under this plan.

Since it is meant to provide protection to your child thus LIC has made the plan very affordable. You can insure your kids for a minimum cover of Rs.1 lac. the premium of which can be paid at your own flexibility.

Though insurance will be the ultimate benefit you will buy for your kids, but you will get the advantage of availing loan as well. You would be able to buy loan after completing 3 years of paying premium.

The policy is a money back plan from LIC thus you get your cash back in the following order which you can put to use the way you want.

  • 20% of the life cover when your child completes his 18th
  • Next 20% on completion of 20th
  • Yet another 20% on 22nd
  • On your child’s 25th year the policy matures and you are paid back your rest of the 40% along with any accrued interest.

5. Jeevan Rakshak:

It’s a regular paying premium plan that yields you bonus in the long run. The benefit you get out of this plan is that if you don’t want to continue paying premium then you can simply surrender the policy after 3 years of the policy purchase. And you will get the guaranteed surrender value.

On death of the policy holder the nominee will receive the life cover which will be the highest of either:

  • Basic life cover,
  • 105% of all the premiums paid as on the date of death,
  • 10 times the yearly premium.

LIC is a well established and one of the most respected companies in India. And their every policy is crafted with utmost care. Thus, every scheme is best, provided you should know what you want.

Think twice before you leap and you will be offer the best.
