LIC’S Online Term Insurance Plan LIC E-Term:

LIC Of India – have recently launched much awaited online insurance plan LIC e-term.

Some important features of LIC’s E-term plan are as follows:

  • Min Entry Age: 18 Yrs
  • Max Entry Age: 60 Yrs
  • Min Policy Term: 10 Yrs
  • Max Policy Term:35 Yrs.
  • Min Sum insured for non-smokers: Rs.50 Lakh.
  • Max Sum insured to smokers : Rs.49 Lakh.
  • Max sum insured : No Limit.

Good thing about this plan is this plan offers higher term of 35 years.There are number of other cheaper plans which offers insurance for max term like 25 years..so this plan is better for average age of 30 years to cover self till approximate retirement age till 60 yrs.

Individuals who are seeking to buy online term insurance may need to undergo certain medical tests depending on different factors like age,higher sum insured or history of individual and they may need to pay higher premium for specific cases.

Term insurance is the cheapest and purest form of insurance as only risk is covered. As term insurance covers pure risk,there won’t be any maturity benefit.

LIC have offline term plan – Amulya Jeevan II for sum insured of Rs.50 Lakh.Premium comparison for Online Term plan and Premium Comparison between online and offline plans for 20 yr term plan and 30 yr old is as below:

PREMIUM LIC E-TERM ONLINE TERM INSURANCE PLAN

 

So one can view that online plan bypasses certain costs like agent commission or other administration costs leading to cheaper premium compared to offline term insurance.

But I think this plan will not affect agents with a great way as most of the agents do business in endowment or ULIP plans as well there is still very less awareness among peoples about term insurance.

LICs New Term Insurance Plans – LIC Anmol Jeevan -II & LIC Amulya Jeevan II

LIC have recently re-launched term insurance plans viz. LIC Jeevan Anmol – II and LIC Amulya Jeevan II .You may have also seen advt in few of the newspapers.Both offers pure risk covers and offer only death benefit within policy term & no survival or maturity benefits.

Changes in mortality rates reflects in premiums as premiums have reduced in new launched term insurance plans.

What is basis diff between – LIC Anmol Jeevan & Amulya Jeevan :Basic difference is if you are looking for sum insured up  to Rs 24 Lakh then you need to choose Anmol Jeevan and for Sum insured of above Rs.25 Lakh choose Amulya Jeevan.

Premium Rates:Anmol Jeevan LIC’s website till don’t offer any premium calculation except information of premium per 1000 sum assured.

LIC ANMOL JEEVAN - PREMIUM RATES

So for 30 yr male looking cover of Rs.20 Lakh ,with policy term of 25 years will have at least premium of Rs.7080 + service tax.(Exact premium for mentioned specifications not known till.–shall be updated)

Few Premium rates of other insurance companies:

Plan Name Annual Premium – 30 Yr old – Male,Non-smoker,Term 25 YrsSA:20 Lakh
Aegon Religare iTerm 2620
Bajaj Allianz iSecure Insurane plan 3500
Canara,HSBC Pure Term plan 5300
Edelweiss Tokyo Life protection 4044
HDFC CLICK2PROTECT 3840
ICICI PRU i-Care 3580
IDBI-Federal Term Insurance plan 4365
India first Online Term plan 2761
ING Term Life 5327
LIC anmol Jeevan 7643
PNB Met Term Assurance 5700
Reliance Term Plan 4160
SBI Life Saral Sheild 5078
Star Union Dai-Ichi – Pure Term Assurance Plan 6402
TATA AIA Life Raksha 5280

so I guess,though premiums have reduced,Anmol Jeevan is not still cheap in comparison with other plans.

Premium  chart for Amulya Jeevan:

LIC AMULYA JEEVAN - PREMIUM CHART

 

Just check both premium charts .One can find that for 30 yr old and 25 yr policy term,premium rates are discounted.

so for 30 yr old,25 yrs  term and for 40 lakh sum assured ,Minimum premium will be Rs.7840 + Service tax.(Exact premium not known till).

Premium for other insurance companies:For Rs.40 Lakh sum assured:

Plan Name 30 Yr old,Male,Non smoker ,40 Lakh SA,Term 25 yrs
Aviva i-Life Term plan 5120
Bharti AXA Life eProtect 5000
DLF Pramerica U Protect 8200
ICICI pru Pure Protcet Elite 8554
Kotak e-preferred Term plan 4570
Max New York Life Platinum Protect 8120
PNB Met surakshsha Plus 8520
SBI Life Smart shield – Term Assurance plan 7144
Star union Dai –Ichi Life Premiere Plan 11000

so if premium for Amulya Jeevan comes up to even Rs.10,000 it will be good offering by LIC.

LIC Anmol Jeevan have max policy term of 25 Yrs so for 30 yr old,max cover will be available up to age of 55 only which may not be sufficient as one can expected to be covered up to age of 60 yrs.so in that context ,Amulya Jeevan looks to be better product for me.
