Surrender is a voluntary request made by the policyholder to exit from the policy before it matures. Surrender also means forgoing policy benefits such as risk cover, tax benefits etc and quitting quest to achieve your financial goals and let go of the financial security for your loved ones.
Your surrender value is computed as per the surrender clause mentioned in your policy terms and conditions. Surrender value depends on various factors like the number of premiums paid, premium amount, type of plan, lock-in period etc.
Insurance polices are made to secure your future and provide long-term financial benefits. It is advisable to stay invested through the whole period of the policy term to maximize the benefits. When a policy is surrendered; certain charges are deducted from your policy and the remaining amount is paid to the policyholder. Also, the policy gets terminated and no terminal benefits such as death or maturity benefits are provided. The policy will be treated as closed and not in-force. Customer is likely to lose tax benefits.
A policy can be surrendered post completion of the lock in period as per the surrender clauses mentioned in the policy document.
1. In case of a ULIP policy, surrender value is payable only after the completion of Lock-In period. However, if a ULIP policy is surrendered before the lock-in period, the unit fund value minus discontinued charges will move to ‘discontinued policy fund’ and this amount will not be payable before completion of the lock-in period. The policy terminates and the discontinued policy fund amount will earn minimum guaranteed interest rates as specified by IRDAI for the remaining period. Post completion of lock in period the discontinued policy fund along with the accrued interest will be paid.
2. If a ULIP policy is surrendered post lock in period, the surrender value will be equal to the fund value (after deduction of charges for surrender and TDS as applicable) on the date of surrender.
