Partial Withdrawal Charge

You have the option to make four free partial withdrawals in each policy year.

These charges may increase in future subject to clearance from the IRDA, but shall never exceed Rs. 500.

Yes


Illustration

Let us assume a simple case:

  •      Your age: 30 years
  •      Sum assured: -10 times of Regular AP
    •      25000*10= Rs 2,50,000
  •      Policy term: 10 years
  •      Premium: Rs. 25,000 p.a.

The life insurance component is miniscule, not exceeding 10 times your annual premium. If you really want life insurance, a good term plan will give you life insurance of about 500 times your annual premium – so you would rather avoid the fund.

Let’s see what you get:

  •       life cover plus Investment
  •       Of your first year premium of Rs. 25,000 p.a.. 4.735%+ Mortality charge is removed. Most of this goes to your agent’s pocket. Only the remaining gets invested in the fund.
  •      Of your 2-5 year premium of Rs. 25,000 p.a. 3.335%+ Mortality charge gets removed again. Most of this again goes to your agent, and only the remaining gets invested.
  •       In addition to this, of your total fund, the fund management charge of ~1.35% is cut every year
  •      Instead, if this Rs. 25,000 p.a. had gone into a Systematic Investment Plan in a Mutual Fund, giving a return of approximately 15% a year on a five year average, not a single Rupee would have been deducted as policy charges. It would not take a mathematician to deduce that the returns here will be much better.

 

In summary, investments can deliver returns only if the costs are not so high.
