Term vs LIC comparison
I have Term insurance worth 1.5 cr & also paying LIC Jeevan anand for last 12 yrs. I am thinking of discontinuing LIC policy due. Pls advise
Insurance is an asset which appreciates with time . Jeevan Anand is an asset with you, it should be continued till maturity.
On maturity ypu will get guaranteed sum assured plus accrued bonuses .
After maturity , you will be insured and your nominee will get sum assured .
You are paying premium only till maturity.
You have a right combo and you should continue. If terminated then you will receive surrender value of policy alongwith surrender value of accrued bonuses .
I recommend you to continue with combo .
I support the advice of Shailesh ji, just bite the bullet and keep paying for jeevan anand,
You've already done the hard yards, unless financial issues force you to discontinue, there is no benefit in stopping the policy after 12 years of discipline and persistence. Keep going and once the terms gets over, you will reap the full benefits of your investment and continued insurance cover even after the term is over.
Hi Rohit, I have a different point of view. Insurance and investment should be kept separate, never mix them together. If you do an XIRR calculation of your LIC policy then it may come around 5%. It won't even beat the inflation. My suggestion is if the premium paying tenure is 3 years or less then only continue or else just surrender the policy with a loss and invest that in a good mutual fund where your money will be compounded at a higher rate. In mutual fund time is money, the longer you spent the more your money will grow. So don't waste your time on endowment policies. If you need bigger insurance coverage you can take another term insurance with fraction of that premium. Hope it helps.

Contrary to other advisors, I find LIC Jeevan Anand and such endowment plans a very slow rate of wealth compounder. It doesn't even beat inflation, effectively you get lesser than your money's worth on maturity. Most endowment plans struggle to reach 6% returns. If that works for you, then please continue. If it doesn't, You may consider a surrender or a paid up option.
