You need to be well equipped to handle the unpleasant surprises that life might have in store for you. The primary responsibility of an earning member of the family is to ensure that the family is taken care of financially in case of his or her absence. Thus, arises the requirement of insurance policies for a person. Ideally, a term plan which provides cover for life to the insured person on his / her sudden demise is the best choice to protect the family from any financial burden. In term plans, the family gets a payout of the sum assured in the event of the death of the insured to cover any financial burden that might befall the family. Although term plans, in most cases, do not have any maturity benefits, they, however, provide the life cover for a maximum amount at the lowest rate of premiums.

How to Revive a Lapsed Policy at Star Union Dai-Ichi Life Insurance Company Limited?

There is a grace period of 30 days in the case of yearly and half-yearly premiums and a grace period of 15 days in the case of a monthly premium offered by the company. Payment of premium within the grace period will keep the policy running. If the insured dies within the grace period, the policy is taken to be in force and the claims are settled deducting the pending premiums. In case the policyholder fails to pay the premium within the grace period of the policy, then the policy lapses. The life cover is discontinued and no benefits are granted to the claimant any further. This, of course, does not apply to the single premium policies.

SUD Life allows the policyholder to revive the lapsed policy within five years of the first missed premium of the policy. There are a few easy steps that can be adhered to revive the policy. They are:

Step 1: The policyholder needs to give a written request to the company about his intention to revive the policy within the first five years of the first missed premium of the policy.

Step 2: The total outstanding premium amount has to be paid with an additional interest payable at the rate of 7.75% p.a. (Financial Year 2020-2021)

Step 3: All medical and financial requirements need to be fulfilled by the policyholder. The medical expenses are borne by the policyholder. 

The Board of the company reserves the right to accept or reject the revival request of the client. Once the revival request is granted, all benefits of the policy are restored back to the original status.
