Jeevan Anand vs Term Insurance + PPF

POSTED BY Mohit Asher ON November 19, 2013 9:13 am COMMENTS (4)

Hi All,

I have read a lot on endowment policies and also that actually the investment should be term insurance + PPF + MF. I am completely convinced that the latter is far much better however I would like to have illustrative view on the same.

Unfortunately, I am a victim of Jeevan Anand and want to get rid of the same and start investing the money in proper channel. Can you please share a sample or point me to a correct forum.

Thanks in advance.

Mohit

    Hi Mohit,

    Consider a hypothetical scenario and them use your numbers.

    Lets say you pay Rs.50000 per year as LIC premium for a sum insured of Rs.10,00,000. You get 80C benefit and after 25 yrs you shall get Rs.10L + Bonus (Rs.5,62,500 @2.25% on sum assured for 25 yrs) + some other bonuses. So all in all you get about 15-17 lakhs after 25 yrs. And you were insured only for 10L throughout.

    Now consider you take term + PPF option. You pay Rs.10,000 per year for a sum insured of about 60-70L and invest Rs.40000 per year in PPF. After 15 yrs you shall get about 11Lakh which you may choose to withdraw of extend for another 5 yrs. In case you withdraw you may put in FD at about 8.5% per annum for 5+5 yrs and finally you will get around 19-20 lakh. And you were insured for Rs.60-70L throughout.

    Now think which is better. The 80C benefit remains valid in both scenario.

      Thanks Kunal. Yes I completely agree that I am in the correct forum 🙂

      The only thing I would like is an illustrative view of difference between Jeevan Anand and Term Insurance + PPF. Can you please guide me on that. I just want to have a look at sample calculations.

      Thanks,
      Mohit
