Unit Linked Insurance Plans

Investment planning may not seem important in your 20s. However, with time, it becomes an essential part of your life as you begin to realise the importance of matching your finances with life objectives.

With an investment plan, you can easily set out clear future goals for yourself and your loved ones. After that, the plan will help you create a combination of long-term investment options and maximise your existing finances to accumulate wealth.

Among the popular wealth-creation instruments available today, Unit Linked Insurance Plans (ULIPs) offer the benefits of both life cover and investments. Moreover, ULIPs offer investment opportunities into a variety of market-linked investment instruments, thus making them an exciting investment planning proposition for the long-term.

What is ULIP?

Unit Linked Insurance Plans or ULIPs are insurance products that combine the benefits of saving and protection in a single instrument. While the plan offers you risk coverage, it also introduces you to the various investment opportunities in the liquid investments, fixed income securities and equities.

Overall, ULIPs can be classified as a comprehensive investment and protection plan that allow you to invest in a variety of market-linked fund options. At the same time, you receive the benefit of life cover throughout the tenure of the policy. Therefore, ULIPs provide you with the opportunity to invest in different funds which can be chosen depending upon your risk appetite.

ULIP Calculator

ULIP calculators are provided by Future Generali to help you calculate the cover amount and corpus you may need. These calculators help in calculating the expected value of an investment in the future. You can input details such as the investment amount, investment frequency, the number of years you want to invest and that after which you need the fund value. Our ULIP calculators provide an estimate of the fund value assuming at 4% (conservative) and 8% (aggressive) investment rate of return.

Why Should You Invest in A Unit Linked Insurance Plan?

Maximizing Your Investment

Unit Linked Insurance Plans (ULIPs) allow you to invest in equities, liquid investments and fixed income securities.

Returns

ULIPs offer returns based on the type of fund you have invested in, ULIPs also offer tax benefit under Sec 10(10D), as per applicable tax laws.

Loyalty Additions

We also provide a variety of loyalty additions with our ULIP plans. This adds to your saving amount on maturity.

Life cover

ULIPs offer a solution to both investment and life insurance cover. The life cover is equal to Death Sum Assured under the plan.

How does a ULIP work?

You periodically pay the premium for the ULIP plan. Subsequently, the insurer deducts the charges and invests the remaining amount into different funds depending on your choice. Primarily, the money is invested in either debt, equity or balanced funds.

The remaining amount (or allocated premium) is utilised to purchase units from different fund. The number of ‘Units’ allocated under each fund depends upon the premium allocated and the NAV (Net Asset Value) of that fund. NAV of a fund is the price of each unit in that fund. The allocation of premium in different funds is done, by fund managers in proportions provided by you.

On maturity, you receive the accumulated fund value. The fund value for a policy is the total value of units across different segregated funds opted in that policy. In case of an unfortunate event (death), your nominee or beneficiary receives the higher of
i)   Fund value
ii)  Sum assured or
iii) 105% of premiums paid till date of death (the amount received as death benefit also depends on whether your policy is a Type 1 or Type 2 ULIP).

How to Choose a ULIP?

Policy Term Flexibility

Unit Linked Insurance Plans are long term investment plans. Therefore, they usually have a lock-in period of 5 years. Based on the policy duration and the lock-in period, you may choose from a number of ULIP Plans. All ULIP plans from Future Generali have a five-year lock-in period.

What is the Maturity Benefit of a ULIP?

The benefits that you receive on the completion of the policy term are known as Maturity Benefits. On completion, Future Generali ULIPs pay you the fund value (the market value of the investment) as Maturity Benefits.

How can I track my Fund Value?

If I’m not satisfied with the returns, can I surrender my ULIP?

You may choose to surrender the policy at any time during the Policy Term. If you opt to surrender the policy before the expiration of the Lock-in-Period of 5 years, Future Generali will deduct Discontinuance Charges and transfer the accumulated fund value to the Discontinued Policy Fund.

After that, the proceeds of the surrendered policy will be accumulated at the minimum guaranteed interest rate of 4% (the rate is subject to change as per directives from the IRDAI) in the Discontinued fund and will be paid to you immediately upon the expiration of the 5-year Lock-in period.

Are investment plans risk-free?

The fund options under the ULIP plans are subject to changes and risks of the capital market. This happens since part of the premium paid is shifted towards providing life cover, while the remaining amount is invested in a variety of funds as per your choice and risk appetite.

For example, equity funds are subject to high market risks and promise higher returns; therefore, equities are suitable for those individuals who seek capital appreciation and have a high-risk appetite.

On the other hand, debt investment funds are suitable for individuals who seek long-term capital preservation. Given the fact that ULIPs invest in capital market-linked instruments and stock-market linked investment tools including bonds and mutual funds, the risk associated from fund to fund. Moreover, since the policyholder bears the risk, you need to carefully analyse your goals and risk appetite before investing.

Can I withdraw my investments?

ULIP plans from Future Generali offer you the benefit of partial withdrawals, wherein you may take out some amount from the accumulated Fund Value within the policy tenure. However, this benefit can only be availed after the completion of the lock-in period - five years from the inception of the policy.

Can you describe the lock-in period for ULIPs?

Lock-in period is described as the period in which you cannot make any withdrawals or liquidate the accumulated fund value. If you opt to discontinue the policy before the completion of its lock-in period, Future Generali shall transfer the fund value to a discontinued policy fund after deducting surrender charges.

After that, you will be paid the accumulated fund value only once the lock-in period completes.

What is fund switching in ULIP?

Fund switching is a feature offered by Future Generali ULIP plans that allow you to transfer some or all the units from an existing fund into one or more funds. The switch is completed at the existing Unit Price of the respective fund, on the same day you initiate the switch.

You may make up to 12 switches in a particular financial year without incurring any charges, after which additional switches will be charged at Rs. 100 in the same financial year.
