How the Plan Works?

Let us understand the plan with the help of Raman’s example.

Raman bought MetLife money back plan for Sum assured of Rs 5 Lacs for a fixed term of 10 years.

Scenario 1: Raman Survives the Policy Term

Raman will start getting 10% of the sum assured from 5th to 9th year as survival benefit.The survival benefit will be 10% of the sum assured. Rs 50,000 is payable as a money back amount. On maturity, Raman will receive the remaining 50% of the sum assured which is Rs 2,50,000 plus an additional 10% guaranteed which is Rs 50,000.So the total payout is 110% of the sum assured( Rs 5 Lacs).

Scenario 2: Raman dies during the policy term

Assuming if Raman dies in the beginning of the9th policy year.He had already received three money backs amounting to Rs 1.5 Lacs ( 10% of 5 Lacs for 3 policy years).His family members are entitled to receive a death benefit of Rs 5 lacs (100% of the sum assured) without deducting any paid survival benefits and the policy terminates.
