ICICI Pru Group Unit Linked Employee Benefit Plan Benefits

The employees will be entitled to the following benefits if they are covered under ICICI Pru Group Unit Linked Employee Benefit Plan –

Death Benefit

In case of death of any of the life assured, the insurer will pay a sum assured on death. This term insurance covers each member under the policy by offering a sum assured  of INR 1,000. The cover will commence from the date of entry of a member into the policy or on the annual renewal date.

Note – The sum assured on death will be payable only upon the death of the member, provided the member is in service of the employer.

Loyalty Additions

The insurance company will provide loyalty additions at the end of every financial year, based on the Policy Value, Option and Extra Allocation. Loyalty Additions will be added to your policy fund in the form of additional units, which will be allocated to the funds in the same ratio as the premiums allocated at the time of allocation. If you choose option B, an extra allocation will apply and get credited to your account in the first policy year.

Benefits Payable On Leave Encashment, Provided Employee is in Service

The insurer will provide a benefit if an employee encashes leave while in service as per the Employee Benefit (EB) scheme rules. A claim amount will be paid by the cancellation of units at the prevailing NAV.

Benefits Payable On Employee’s Exit from the Employer’s Service

If an employee leaves the employer’s service as per the EB scheme rules (resignation, retirement, termination or ceasing service due to disability), an amount shall be paid by cancellation of units at the prevailing NAV.

The company’s liability to the insured employee is limited to the Policy Fund Value. The master policyholder (employer) at its discretion can pay a higher amount of benefit, than the one laid down under EB Scheme Rules, to the insured member.

Automatic Transfer Strategy (ATS)

You can choose to automatically transfer, a predefined premium amount, from investments in a fund, every month, into any of the available funds under this plan. If you use this option, you must intimate the employer that the premium will be transferred from one target fund to another. After that, the employer opts for a transfer date of either the 1st or 15th of every month.

At the time of transfer, the required number of units will be withdrawn from the specified Fund, and new units will be allocated in the specified destination fund as per their NAVs.

Note – The minimum transfer amount is INR 2,000 and is subject to change as per the rules of the insurance company and subject to prior approval of the regulator from time to time.
