LIC’s new plans 2014-New Moneyback Plans (No.820 and No.821)

Today LIC launched two new money back plans. One is New Moneyback Plan of 20 Yrs (No.820) and another is New Moneyback  Plan of  25 Yrs (No.821). These two are the new versions of old plans Moneyback Plan 20 Yrs (No. 75) and Moneyback Plan 25 Yrs (No.93). Below are the features of the same.

1) New Money Back Plan 20 Yrs (No.820)

New Money Back Plan 20 Yrs (No.820)

2) New Money Back Plan 20 Yrs (No.821)

What are the changes?

  • Death Benefit

  • Premium Paying Term
  • Minimum Basic Sum Assured
  • Rebate on premium paying mode
  • Rebate on higher Sum Assured
  • Loan availability
  • Guaranteed Surrender Value definition

  1. DEAR SIR,




  2. Hi Sir,

    I have got 2 LIC plans-

    1. Jeevan Saral – 1000/- per month from 2011 for a term of 25 yrs and
    2. Money Back – 1000/- per month from 2012 for a term of 20 yrs

    Have already enrolled for a Term plan of 75 lacs to cover the insurance part and I’m planning to exit from the above 2 LIC plans.

    Considering the fact that it would not give returns more than 6-8%, can you please advise me inorder to surrender Jeevan Saral Should I wait for 5 yrs i.e. till 2016 and what is the best time to surrender money back plan, after 3yrs or 5yrs ?

    Lastly, once the policy is surrendered where can I invest this amount ? I’m thinking of 1000/- pm in PPF and 1000/-pm in mutual funds via SIP.

    Can you please advise me on this one

    1. Vimal-Jeevan Saral after 5 years and Money Back after 3 years. Again you are doing the same mistake of what you committed earlier. Why to run behind products? First understand your need and goals. Based on goals try to select the product. Product selection must be at end but not at beginning of investment.

    2. Thanks for your quick response.

      If I understood this correctly, I can submit Jeeval Saral after 5 yrs and Money back Policy after 3 yrs. By any chance would you be able to help me how much can I expect on surrendering these policies after 5 and 3 yrs respectively.

      You are correct in saying that, first I need to have clear goals. So I would also need your help to choose the correct products to achieve my 2 goals.

      1. Child’s Education – 30 lacs after 18 yrs and
      2. Retirement Planning – 3 crores.

      Goals Monthly Investment Rate Of Interest Tenure Maturity Amount
      Child Education 5000 12% 18yrs 35,25,193
      Retirement plan 10000 12% 30yrs 3,05,20,132

      Please advise.

Could u suggesst me anyone?

    1. Satnam-Why you buy insurance? To cover your life sufficiently thinking that if death occurs then your nominees will live a life as they are today. Why you invest in any product (especially for long term)? To get good return (again definition of good return varies as 8% to 25%). But the ideal investment for long term should be to beat inflation (also called real return). So in case of endowment and money back plans both these requirements not get fulfilled. Because you can’t buy insurance cover for yourself to the tune of around 15-20 times of your yearly income (set as 15-20 times because at least for next 15-20 years your dependent may survive with current income flow). Return from such policies will be around 6% where as inflation rate itself now 6% to 8%. So how you sustain in long run??
      The ideal solution is NEVER MIX YOUR INSURANCE NEED WITH INVESTMENT NEED. Now choice is your’s.
