Completed 3 years of ICICI Prudential Life Insurance Policies – Go for Paid up or Surrender?

POSTED BY samir2791 ON October 18, 2013 7:22 pm COMMENTS (2)

I am 37 years old, self employed with an annual income of about 6.00 lac. Right now I have only one dependent to me. In 2010, I had purchased 2 traditional policies of ICICI Prudential- 1) Cash Back & 2) Save & Protect for 15 years each. The annual premium of each policy is INR 15000/-. I have already completed 3 years and have paid 3 installments for each policy.  This year I have also purchased two Term Plans- 1) ICICI Pru iCare RP Option II (SA Rs. 35L for 25 Years) & 2) HDFC Click2Protect (SA Rs. 10L for 15 Years). I purchased them online which did not require any Medical Test. After a long struggle and communication of 3 months, I received the Final Policy Documents in my hand. The payment of 4th Installments of my traditional policies need to be made at the end of this month only (October). I have also received a post dated Cheque from the company as being 1st lot of Cash Back . However, I want to discontinue my traditional policies and want to invest the same amount into my NPS Account (opened this year only).

Now I have two doubts in my mind: 1) Should I stop the traditional plan? If yes, then should I go for paid up or for surrender option;  and 2) I have already given the details of Traditional Plans during purchase of Term plans. If I discontinue my traditional plan, will there be any affect / impact on my Term Plans?

Kindly guide me to take an appropriate decision.

N.B. 1. I am also having a 3L annual cashless Health Insurance Policy (Family Floater) from ICICI Lombard.

2. I have also started monthly SIP of Rs. 1500/- on Reliance Mutual Fund (Banking Sector) for 15 years which provides insurance facilities.

Thanks & regards,

Samir

    Thanks Ashal. I was also thinking the same. I was worried only about my Term (Protection) Plan. But you cleared my doubts. I’ll be surrendering it very soon.

    Best regards,
    Samir

    Dear Samir, stopping of these endowment policies ‘ll not affect your Term covers. Surrender ‘ll be a better option as you may reinvest the received amount to earn better return.

    Thanks

    Ashal
