Bonuses Declared by the Kotak Mahindra Life Insurance

Simple Reversionary Bonus – At the end of every financial year, it is declared by the company. This is expressed as a percentage of the sum assured on maturity. And you should know that these types of bonuses are not guaranteed. These depend on the profits emerging in the participating fund set up by the insurance company. You can get the bonus if you have paid all your due premiums.

No simple reversionary bonuses are declared on Reduced Paid-Up policies as they do not participate in the future profits of the company. However, accrued bonuses before the reduced paid-up status will be payable to either on death or maturity, whichever is earlier.

Terminal Bonus – In case of your death, your nominee will get a terminal bonus too, provided all due premiums have been paid in full for at least 10 years. This may be declared for all policies maturing, as a percentage of sum assured on maturity. You won’t get this bonus if your policy is in reduced paid-Up status or surrendered.
