The discounted value currently shall be calculated using an interest rate of 6.25% per annum. This interest rate is subject to change in future with prior IRDAI approval.

In case you are diagnosed with a Terminal Illness, 50% of the applicable Sum Assured on Death, subject to a maximum of Rs. 2.5 crore will be paid immediately, and all future due premiums are waived off. On subsequent death of the Life Insured during the policy term, the Sum Assured on Death shall be reduced by the amount of Terminal Illness Benefit already paid. Future due premiums are not liable to be paid on their premium due dates.
Terminal Illness Benefit shall only be payable on the first diagnosis of any Terminal Illness of the Life Insured during the policy term.
Waiver of premium on Total and Permanent Disability (TPD)
In case of the life insured suffering from Total and Permanent Disability during the policy term described later in detail, all future premiums, if any, will be waived off. Death Benefit under the policy will remain unaffected.

The premium waiver on TPD or CI is applicable only if you have chosen Plan Option 2,4 or 6. Premium waiver benefit is applicable on the first occurrence of either TPD or Critical Illness whichever is earlier. This benefit is applicable only once during the entire policy term.
Joint Life Protection
Under this option, two lives i.e., you (primary life insured) and your spouse (secondary life insured) are covered under the same policy. The sum assured applicable for your spouse shall be equal to 50% of your applicable sum assured. This option shall only be available where the sum assured of primary life insured is greater than or equal to Rs 5,000,000. You can opt for Joint Life Protection for only if Plan Option 1,2, 3 or 4 is chosen. You can opt for this option at the inception of the policy and the same shall not be changed subsequently. No rider can be opted under this option.
Example: Atul (aged 35) and Nina (aged 30) both non-smokers couple choose Life Shield with joint life cover for 30 years. First life (male) opts for a Sum Assured (SA) of Rs 1 Cr and second life cover applied is Rs 50 lacs. Then the premium for both of them is:
Atul – For Sum Assured 1 crore the annualized premium Rs 11,510
Nina - For Sum Assured 50 lakhs the annualized premium is = Rs 4,375
So, the joint life premium payable is (11,510 +90% x 4,375) = Rs 15,448 (with a 10% discount on the premium for the spouse)
In case of death of the primary life insured prior to the secondary life insured, sum assured on death for primary life insured will be paid to the spouse (secondary life insured) and the life cover for secondary life insured will continue with the future premiums, if any, waived off. Then on the death of secondary life insured, before the policy maturity date, sum assured in respect of secondary life insured will be paid to the nominee and policy will be terminated.
In case of death of secondary life insured prior to primary life insured, sum assured in respect of secondary life insured will be paid to the primary life insured. Future premiums, if any, will be reduced from the next policy anniversary to the premium that would have been charged at inception for only primary life insured at policy inception. Then on the death of the primary life insured, before the policy maturity date, the sum assured on death in respect of primary life insured will be paid to the nominee and the policy will be terminated. If case of death of both the lives simultaneously the sum assured on death in respect of the primary life insured as well as sum assured in respect of secondary life insured will be paid to the nominee and the policy will be terminated.
Once the Joint Life Protection is opted, you cannot discontinue the coverage of the particular life, unless it is due to the events as mentioned above.
The Terminal Illness Benefit as explained in the Death Benefit section shall be applicable in respect of both i.e. the primary life insured, and the secondary life insured.
Enhanced Life stage Protection
Your protection need varies at different life stages owing to occurrence of joyous events such as marriage & birth of children. You may opt to increase your life cover on occurrence of each of the events without undergoing for any fresh medical examination. This feature is available only for policy under Plan Option 1 & Option 2, standard life at inception of the policy, regular pay policy and the attained age of life insured is less than or equal to 50 years while exercising this option. This option is not available if Joint Life Protection is opted. Future premiums shall be considered at the premium rate as applicable on the age at inception of the policy. Future premiums shall be increased in proportion of the increase in the sum assured to the sum assured at inception of the policy and will be reflected from the subsequent policy anniversary. The details of Enhanced Life stage Protection are mentioned below:
(% of Sum Assured at Inception of the policy)
|First Marriage||50% subject to a maximum of Rs. 5,000,000|
|Birth of 1st Child||25% subject to a maximum of Rs. 2,500,000|
|Birth of 2nd Child||25% subject to a maximum of Rs. 2,500,000|
You can choose to reduce the sum assured in future to the extent of sum assured increased under the Enhanced Life stage Protection option. The reduction in sum assured will be effective from the policy anniversary falling immediately after the date of notification and the premium will be decreased at the same time. Any increase in sum assured due to your first marriage, birth of first child or second child under this option, may be subsequently reduced subject to the written request. The premium shall be decreased by the same amount as the premium was increased while exercising the Enhanced Life stage Protection option.
In the event the life insured survives to the end of the policy term, no benefit is payable on maturity except when the Return of Premium Plan Option 7 I 8 is chosen and then the sum of all the premiums (excluding GST, premiums paid towards underwriting extras and/or riders as may be applicable) shall be paid on the policy maturity date and the policy will be terminated thereafter.
