Which option is best for LIC Jeevan Tarun Policy?
As per the explanation above, we can see that if you choose option 1, there will be no money back concept. Entire amount will be paid as sum assured value. But if you go further, some % will be paid as maturity amount and rest will be paid in 5 years. E.g. if you choose option 4, then on maturity you will get only 25% amount. Rest 75% amount will be paid in 5 years term. Now in that 5 years, your 75% amount will not at all grow or get any interest. Then why to keep that money with them? When one can get even 6% interest from a saving account itself.
So after seeing the LIC Jeevan Tarun Policy Review, we can say that one should choose the first option only if he/she is buying this policy.

Should I buy LIC Jeevan Tarun Policy?
In simple words, think 10 times why do you need to buy an insurance policy for your kid? Do you think by purchasing this policy you will be able to beat the education expenses in future? As per my previous LIC policy reviews, I can say that this policy hardly will be able to give a return of 5-6% in long term, but our education inflation is around 9% as per history.
In that case how do you plan for your child’s education expenses with LIC Jeevan Tarun Policy?
One should buy a term plan for his/her life and invest money to get more return in long term to beat the inflation. Rest is up to you, check out the LIC Jeevan Tarun Policy brochure carefully and read all clauses before buying.
