LIC JEEVAN ANAND

POSTED BY joshima ON November 3, 2012 1:43 pm COMMENTS (11)

Hello ppl,

 

I am 29yrs old and had joined jeevan anand policy for sum assured 30 lakhs for 18 yrs. I had been informed by the agent that I would receive 70 lakhs by the end of 18 years. But I have just figured out I would only be receiving 54,27,000. I have paid up two quarterly premium summing to 93,500 rupees. I would like to quit from this policy as  I was intending the policy as an investment ( I know now that Life insurance is not an investment). What would be my option? Can I quit now? Will I get back my premium paid? Or should I continue with this policy?

  1. Hi ,

    I have 5 Jeevan Anand policies taken in 2007 with term of 27 to 31 Years with total sum assured of 5,00,000/- for yearly premium of 17,121/-. So I have paid total of 1,19,847.00 in 7 Years. I check with LIC I will get total Surrender value = 67,583.10 /- i.e. I will get only 65% paid amount if I surrender amount right now.
    Correct me If I am wrong , I require your help on this whether to surrender the policy or any alternative is available

    1. These kind of policies leave you with a big loss if you are going to stop them midway . But even continuing them is going to give you a loss only. I would suggest if you dont need money right away , then you can make it PAID UP

  2. Dear Joshima, what’s the update from your side as on date?

    thanks

    1. I feel ICICI PruLife Online is better as ICICI is more reliable name. But recently ICICI Pru has increased its Term COver premium.

    2. FOr Health Insu – I have Apollo Family floater. I have also taken a Super Top up from United Insurance. This combo fives my family a cover of 20L with just Rs 35k premium (Age >45 yrs)

    Dear Joshma,

    Personally i dont know any finacial planners in india as i’ve never approached them in my life to discuss/plan about my finance/goals coz. i’m confident in managing my own finance, whatever the knowledge i earned from reading books, articles of ET, outlook money etc.. & personnel finance blogs specially jagoinvestor. u can contact Mr. Manish Chauhan, the owner of http://www.jagoinvestor.com, who has paid services for personal finance planning.

    thanks

    Dear Roshan,

    Thank you Roshan. Would you be able to reccomend some financial planners in India with a good proven track record? someone like Dr K.K Goel of Ndtv social!

    Aegon Religare seems good, though I am a lil doubtful on Aviva. I need to take time on MF’s.

    Regards,

    Dear Joshima,

    1. Term insurance – Aegon Religare or Avia, but be careful to provide all ur details honestly.
    2. Also buy a medical insurance(family floater)
    3. MF – ICICI Pru. discovery growth, Quantum long term eq., Franklin india blue chip.

    Thanks

    Dear Rosh,

    Again, so kind of you….will look seriously into equity MF and PPF!!! any particular suggestions on the term insurance/ equity MF…!! so could check on those..!!

    Dear Joshma,

    first of all i’d like tell u that, insurance + investment is a bad combination. one should not mix up these. keep insurance separate from investment. I strongly suggest u to read a book writeen by Mr. Manish “Jagoinvestor – change ur relationship with money” & understand the concept of insurance & investment.

    ur goal is to achieve 70L target for ur daughters education. currently ur a/premium seems to be 1.87L & insurance covered is only 30L??? For 29 yr old non smoking female pure online term insurance for a of 1 Cr will cost u around 6,500 – 7,000 per annum, balance amount u can invest in PPF & long term equity MF.

    Term insurance + eq. MF + PPF is a best combination.

    thanks

    Dear Rosh,

    Thank you for your quickie. I am going through the link and it seems to have ppl for and against the policy. I have nothing against the scheme. My actual issue is not being able to attain my target. 70 lakhs was my target for my daughters education and marriage. With this policy i had an insurance cover plus attainment of my goal. Now 70lakhs have dropped drastically to 54 lakhs which is a bit hard for me to digest. I am still trying to figure out in the shared link where have someone spoke clearly of quitting the policy.

    Regards,
