Guaranteed Surrender Value:
The policy may be surrendered after it has been in force for 3 years or more. The guaranteed surrender value is 30% of the basic premiums paid excluding the first year's premium. In case of a single premium policy the guaranteed surrender value is 90% of the single premium paid excluding any extra premium.
Corporation's policy on surrenders:
In practice, the Corporation will pay a Special Surrender Value - which is either equal to or more than the Guaranteed Surrender Value. The benefit payable on surrender reflects the discounted value of the reduced claim amount that would be payable on death or at maturity. This value will depend on the duration for which premiums have been paid and the policy duration at the date of surrender. In some circumstances, in case of early termination of the policy, the surrender value payable may be less than the total premium paid.
The Corporation reviews the surrender value payable under its plans from time to time depending on the economic environment, experience and other factors.
