Premium Calculations

One can pay premium yearly, half-yearly, quarterly or monthly mode (through ECS only) or through salary deductions over the term of policy. A grace period of 30 days will be valid for premium payment of yearly or half-yearly or quarterly premiums and 15 days for monthly premiums.

The premium calculation will be as below:
Age of Entry : 35 Years
Policy Term : 12 years
Premium Paying Terms: 9 years
Mode of Payment: Yearly
Sum Assured: 3,00,000
Premium To be paid: 30,091

Maturity Return Calculation

From the above premium calculation you can say that you have to pay total 30,091 X 9 = 2,70,000 (approx) to get Sum Assured of 3,00,000 + Bonus after 12 years (Bonus will not be more than 4 % as per LIC record). It means after 12 years you will hardly get 4 -5 % as return on long term investment. Again you have to consider that this is an insurance policy. But from a life cover point of view I don’t think this plan can give you maximum benefit.

Should I buy LIC Limited Premium Endowment Plan 830

So far whatever policies launched by LIC, they follow a similar structure of calculation. If you consider that as an insurance product then the life cover is almost negligible. If you consider that as a investment product then again you will get very less return. So LIC tried to combine investment and insurance once again in this policy. As an investor you have better alternative available in market. Again I will say the same thumb rule one should follow for a best financial plan : buy a 1 crore pure term insurance plan and invest rest of the amount in low risk investment products or mutual funds.

  1. Insurance is not that you die and your dependants will get sum insured. LIC gives a return which is average but for that also someone is giving in instalment. Also the return is TAX FREE also with 100% guarantee. If some one says LIC gives low returns then some one will also argue that in a Rs100 loan you have to pay Rs250 at the end of the term. LIC is different from pvt. players.
    Return is always high by taking low amount as compared to other pvt. insurers.

  2. Hi Santanu,

    I read your article, but i’m still in a dilemma to buy a good policy for my kid education needs. could you assist which policy will be good.

    I have gone through LIC Jeevan Tarun as well as SBI smart champ

    1. If your target of investment is to accumulate money for your kid’s education then why you are buying an insurance policy?
      Simply save money in a pure investment product like PPF, Mutual fund for long term. And with that buy a term plan.

  3. Hello Santanu,

    Thanks for your valuable post. I am wondering why people are falling into LIC blindly like sheeps by knowing the returns are very lower 🙂 Actually the thing is all my colleagues advised me to take some/any LIC policy post my marriage and LIC is the basic need you need to have in life, they advised. But I analyzed LIC, online term insurance, PPF, mutual funds etc and concluded the same like you thought 🙂

    I strongly agree your point of taking a pure term insurance and investing our money in some equity mutual funds.


    1. Thanks for finding my effort useful.

      Actually your friends are advising good for you only. But they are also victim of perception. In our country people think insurance means LIC. So when someone say, you should do a LIC as you are married or you have a kid, that means you need insurance 🙂 Its like with the term noodle, many people think its Maggie.

      But this is good that you have realized the importance of term plan. Choose any online term plan for a larger life cover. You may like to read another article about term plan comparison

  4. Hi santanu, Thanks for the details. How about this plan for the people aged 60+? I find this is the only policy which has max eligible age capped to 62 years and provided cover till 12 years with 9 year premium term.

      1. Yes Santanu, I second you. Post office savings recurring deposit scheme yeilds are better for senior citizens. Thanks.
