My age is 41, if my sum assured is Rs.200000. kindly send the details about premiums, total benefits etc and other details. What is difference between Jeevan Anand and Jeevan Pragathi. Sudhendra Kulkarni.

Replied : 04-02-2016 03:23:44
yearly premium with 20 year term will be 11378 and 11179 for first year and second year onward respectively. Approx maturity will be 388000. The main difference is the life time risk cover in case of jeevan anand. The death sum assured increase every 5 year in case of jeevan pragati while its 125% constant in case of Jeevan Anand.
