LIC Jeevan Labh is a limited premium paying, with-profits endowment plan. It offers an optimal blend of investment and savings to the policy holder. The policy is essentially suited for young Indians studying abroad or settled abroad. LIC Jeevan Labh is also recommended for people with high-risk jobs such as Merchant Navy, Mining, Airlines, Refineries and Construction.
LIC Jeevan Labh is one of the best policies for NRIs as well as people who have migrated abroad for the short run. It is a non-market linked plan. The policy holder is eligible to get loyalty bonuses that LIC announces from time to time. The savings are maximized as the premium paying term ceases 6 years before the maturity of the policy. The policy holder thus gets the benefit of full insurance cover without having to pay a premium during the last 6 years of the policy term. Depending on the need, the policy holder may opt for 16 years, 21 years or 25 years term. Policy of a longer tenure is recommended as it maximizes returns. As an illustration, a policy holder seeking an insurance cover of 20 lakhs for 21 years will roughly pay a little over Rs. 1 lakh as premium for 16 years. The policy holder has the option of paying a premium on a monthly, quarterly, half-yearly or annual basis. Typically, a discount of 2% is offered to policy holders who opt for annual premium payments. He gets back at approx. 45 lacs after 21 years. The maturity proceeds are completely tax-free.
