How is the new Jeevan Anand Plan different from the earlier version?
In the earlier plan, on death of the insured before the policy term, nominee of the policy is entitled to receive Sum Assured plus Reversionary Bonus. While in case of death of the insured after the policy maturity term, he shall receive only additional Sum Assured value. However, in the relaunched edition of the Jeevan Anand insurance plan, nominee of the policy in case of death of the insured during the policy term, shall be entitled to receive death benefit as 'Sum Assured on Death' together with Simple Reversionary Bonuses and Final Additional bonus, if any. Criteria for minimum value of ' Sum Assured on Death' has been specified earlier.
Further, while the earlier version of LIC's Jeevan Anand included critical illness rider option, the new plan includes only 2 basic riders for accidental death and disability.
