Continuing the story from where I left it last, a Capital Advisor reader wrote in –
My husband, aged 35, has a Jeevan Anand policy for a sum assured of Rs 15 lacs for which the annual premium is Rs 82,524. The policy inception date is 23-November-2009 and the maturity date is 23-November-2030.
I, being a housewife and aged 30, also have a Jeevan Anand policy for a sum assured of Rs 10 lacs for which the annual premium is Rs 51,510. The policy inception date is 26-November-2009 and the maturity date is 26-November-2030.
I honestly don’t understand why the agent sold us a policy in my name. The premium for this year is soon due in November, 2012, but having read your past articles I’m not sure if we should continue these policies at all. I’d like to know which Jeevan Anand policy should we surrender and what our overall loss would be upon surrendering.
Rs 134,034 per year as premium for two Jeevan Anand policies! I am speechless! But here’s your chance to speak up and advise this reader about what they ought to do with those useless policies.
The best answer wins a full year’s subscription (12-issues; postal delivery) to Value Research’s Wealth Insight magazine. I read this magazine each month and I find it quite insightful (!).
