The eligibility criteria for Jeevan Utsav vary based on the age of the life assured. There’s no limit to the maximum sum assured, but it will be based on LIC’s underwriting policy. The basic sum assured can be increased in increments of Rs. 25,000 up to Rs. 24 lakh and then by Rs. 1,00,000.

In the event of the death of the life assured, the policy provides a Death Benefit equal to the “Sum Assured on Death” along with accrued Guaranteed Additions.

  1. Regular Income Benefit: 10% of Basic Sum Assured paid at the end of each policy year, starting from a specified year, provided all due premiums have been paid.
  2. Flexi Income Benefit: Similar to the Regular Income Benefit but allows the policyholder to defer and accumulate these benefits. LIC will pay interest on the deferred and accumulated Flexi Income Benefits at the rate of 5.5% per annum.

Policyholders can withdraw up to 75% of the balance accumulated Flexi Income Benefit(s), including interest, once in a policy year.

Five optional riders are available under Jeevan Utsav, but the policyholder can opt for either LIC’s Accidental Death and Disability Benefit Rider or LIC’s Accident Benefit Rider, and/or the remaining three riders, subject to eligibility as per underwriting practice and guidelines of LIC.
