From today onward LIC started to offer new plans which are according to new IRDA Regulations. LIC closed its existing plans by 31st Dec 2013. So from this month onward you will find plenty of new featured plans. The first plan in the list is “Single Premium Endowment Plan, Table No.817″. Let see what it actually offers.
It is a single premium policy and contains the below features.
Below is the loan availability % based on the total surrender value.
So is it beneficial to invest?
Let us consider a person whose age is 30 years, interested to invest Rs.1,00,000 for a term of 25 years, then the premium will be Rs.48,545 (Including 3.09% Service Tax). It looks great at first instant as for getting SA of Rs.1,00,000 you are paying less than half of it. But do remember that this is the traditional plan and you need to wait for 25 years. In terms of liquidity this plan seems good. But when you consider as an investment tool then my suggestion will be “STAY AWAY”.
