Loan limit can be checked in the below
This amount has arrived by taking the
last 15 years bonus history of LIC and this is just a approximate value.
Surrender value can be calculated from
As a standard rate 80% of the
surrender value can be taken as loan.
Interest charged on loan against policy was pegged flat 9.5% per annum which
would be compounded annually.
The borrower will be given two options
for loan re-payment.
1. He/she can repay loan with his own
funds and continue the policy. This has to be paid before the policy term ends.
2. He/she can complete the premium payments and maturity amount will be given
after loan deductions.
The loan value arrived would be too low if the sum assured is less or if loan was taken as early as 3rd
year because the surrender value would be very less and loan value will be
still lower .So, taking loan when policy nearing maturity or taking higher sum
assured will get you higher loan value.
Policyholder needs to submit a letter requesting for loan in home branch LIC,
along with bank details to which the loan amount would be transferred through
NEFT. This usually takes 7-10 days to release loan amount.
On most of the traditional LIC policies, we have the option of taking a loan on the policy to meet any of our unexpected financial requirements. In most of the policies, you will be able to take a loan against a policy once the policy completes 3 years from the date of commencement. The amount of money which you can avail from the policy loan depends on the Surrender value available on the policy. So, if you take a loan in the earlier years, you will be able to take a lesser amount as loan. The interest on a LIC policy loan will be 9.5 % per anum, compounded half-yearly. You shall either re-pay the loan with the interest or during the maturity of your policy, the loan amount with the interest will be deducted from your final settlement.
