There is a further payment of 10% of the Sum Assured every year from the date of death of the Life Insured till the end of the policy tenure as Income Benefit. The Maturity Benefit is paid when the policy tenure is over. This policy has 2 additional riders available.

    i can get the same information from LIC’s site… where are your views on it?

    We advise people to not to buy Jeevan Ankur as Traditional Endowment plans yields much low returns as compared to Systematic investment in mutual funds Though this plan will continue to do great as Jeevan anand because of good amount of commission involved for the agents.

    Yeah so mention it in your review and why should i not invest in Jeevan Ankur?? I invested in Mutual Funds before 1.5 years and the returns are still in negative. Better to have low returns than negative returns.

    I can understand your apprehension here. I will though like to point out the investment in market should not be done with a horizon of 1.5 years. Equity investment should always be taken for long term investment of more than 5 years.

    I dont offend you but reality is for 15-20 year investment time horizon, Equity outperform all other investment avenues. Hence, should always be part of once portfolio.

    Ideally, one should take a term insurance plus a SIP of the rest of the amount. Jeevan ankur should only be taken if one wants to invest in PPF account. It will certainly yield a better return than PPF.
