Jeevan Lakshya Premium calculator
If you are looking for lic Jeevan Lakshya premium calculator, then you have to wait. I have checked LIC’s website and in-fact there is no such calculator available. Still the old policies calculators.
Anyway, you can check out the sample premium calculations for Jeevan lakshya plan. E.g. For a 30 year male, the premium amount for a sum assured value of Rs 1,00,000 will be Rs 4366 / year. The policy tenure is 25 years.
LIC Jeevan Lakshya maturity amount calculation
As per the above data the maturity value of Jeevan Lakshya after 25 years will be as below.
Amount 1,17,500 will be considering interest rate of 4% and amount 1,90,000 will be considering 8% interest. But again these are all assumptions. In practice the net gain will be around 5-6% range only.
I took this data from lic website only. You can check out the complete maturity value chart here. In fact you can check out the complete jeevan lakshya plan circular launched by life insurance corporation of India.
Jeevan Lakshya Surrender value
Although this might be too early to talk about Jeevan Lakshya surrender value, as this is a new policy from lic f India. But I am sure that in few years people will start looking for how to calculate surrender value of Jeevan lakshya plan or how much I will get if I surrender Jeevan lakshya plan.
Anyway, this policy is also following the standard surrender rules like other lic policies. But the guaranteed surrender value calculation is not at all easy. You can find out the chart below to get some idea about that.
Should I buy LIC Jeevan Lakshya Plan?
LIC Jeevan Lakshya policy is nothing but another endowment plan. Although they are targeting this plan for children future and their 10% payment in every year in case of death clause will surely attract people.
If you consider the above example, by paying Rs 4,336 one can only buy a life cover of Rs 1,00,000 only. And the return after 25 years is also not at all attractive.
Look for other alternatives, buy a pure term insurance plan and invest money in mutual fund for long term to get maximum return.
