Surrender Value of LIC Policy – Calculate or Call Helpline

How to calculate Surrender Value of LIC Policy? Is there any other way to know the Surrender Value of LIC Policy? We are seeing a lot of comments about the low Surrender Value of LIC Policy in the initial years. Surrender Value of LIC Policy is very important, because you will get loans from the policy based on the surrender value of the policy.

Surrender Value is the amount, a policy holder will get if he wants to terminate his policy before the maturity date of the policy. Insurance companies use a formula to calculate the amount payable like this.

Surrender Value of LIC Policy

Surrender Value of LIC Policy is calculated from Paid-up value of the policy.

What is Paid-up value? How to calculate Paid-up value?

If you have paid 5 yearly premiums in a 20-year Endowment Policy of Rs. 1 Lakh sum assured, the formula for calculating the Paid-up value is as follows:

Paid-up value = Number of years premium paid x Sum Insured/Number of years    premium payable

In the above example, Paid-up value = 5 x 1,00,000/20 = 25,000

Surrender Value of LIC Policy – Traditional Plans

LIC uses a Surrender Value chart to arrive at the surrender value from the paid-up value. It is nothing but the discounted value of the paid-up value. In the above example, LIC is liable to pay you Rs. 25,000 only at the maturity date of the policy, which is after another 15 years. So, if you require the amount now, LIC will discount the value and pay you the surrender value, which will be a fraction of the paid-up value. In the initial years, it will be even less than the premiums paid by you.

LIC uses different tables for different products to calculate the Surrender Value of LIC Policy. It is better to call their IVR or city specific numbers to know the “Surrender Value of LIC Policy.
