Maturity Benefit

If you survive till the end of the policy term, you will receive a handsome amount at Maturity. The Sum Assured on maturity includes bonus and additions like Cash Bonus, Accrued Paid-Up Additions, and Terminal Bonus (if any).

Survival Benefit

Your Kotak Premier Life Plan survival benefit will depend on your chosen bonus option at the time of policy inception. You can change the bonus option at inception by giving a written request to the insurer within 3 months before the end of the premium payment term.

Cash Bonus Option

If you choose this option, an accrued Simple Reversionary Bonus will be payable to the insured person at the end of the premium payment term. Further, after the expiry of the premium payment term, Cash Bonus becomes payable till the policy term, death, or surrender, whichever is earlier.

An accrued Simple Reversionary Bonus is utilized to purchase Paid-Up Additions under this option. And, at the end of each policy anniversary after the premium payment term, a Cash Bonus is going to be utilized to purchase Paid-Up Additions (PUA).

In Kotak Premier Life Plan, a Paid-Up Addition is an additional guaranteed benefit that is payable on death or maturity. The formula for calculating Paid-Up Addition is –

Paid-Up Addition Factor x Accrued Simple Reversionary Bonus/Cash Bonus
