I am a regular reader of your blog and this blog is helping me to improve my financial planning and awareness. Recently I decided to surrender my ICICI Forever life pension policy as I figured out the the pension a the vesting time will be nowhere near the prmised illustration, So I have decided to get the surrender value from ICICI and the surrender value they quote is way below what I calculated. Could you check the mail send by me to ICICI and let me know if my cacluation is correct and also advise if it is wise to surrender this policy a this point of time.
My mail to ICICI below illustratinf the calculation of surrender value
I had a look at the insurance offer letter and surrender value according to the offer letter is
35% of premiums paid excluding the first premiums and any extra premiums + guarenteed additions + accrued bonus. So as per the mail received from you and Madhavan Balakrishnan (Exec director ICICI LIC Co.Ltd) about the one time celebratory bonus. I have made excel sheet to calculate the surrender value which is Rs. 81516.79. Please see that attached and let me know your explanations.
|Date||Premium||Guaranteed additions||Vested Bonus|
|One time Celebratory bonus||3483.05|
|Sum of premuims excluding first year premium||62076|
|35% of premiums excluding first premium||21726.6|
|Sum of guarenteed additions||33930.28|
|Sum of accrued bomus||25859.91|
Dear MR Sajit Varghese Zachariah,
We refer to your email dated 1st December, 2010.
The Surrender Value is equal to 35% of all premiums – Frist year premium + Cash value of all accrued bonuses.
Hence the calculated surrender value as on 2nd December, 2010 is Rs. 38, 296.41/-.
Please contact us for further clarifications, if any.
