Third Option is Surrender option :This as per normal policy of LIC. In present case after 10 year of policy, surrender value is around 75-80% of NCO.

No body in  LIC's  Field offices knows about NCO:But in Most of the case LIC employees/officers are ignorant  about the First option that is Notional Cash Option .We have talked about this Option at least with the 10 offices of LIC but in most of the cases they are informing us surrender value if we want to exercise to opt to receive Lump sum value in lieu of Annuity /Pension. And in case of One of my friend they have given Surrender value of 1.60 Lakh instead on Notional Cash Option value of Rs 2 Lakhs.

The reason may be that LIC stopped Notional Cash Option in present policies and may have lack of knowledge about  special provisions of this particular policy

Suggestions  while Exercising Your option

1) In case you Opt to take lump sum cash option in lieu of the annuity payable in future

(a)    You will have permanent liquidity in your hands.
(b)   You can personally invest in any secured instruments like Debentures/ FDRs etc.
(c)    In case of any urgency / emergency you can trade / can opt for pre- mature encashment/can take loan/mortgage your instrument.

2) In case you Opt to take Annuity for life with return of purchase price on death

(a)    You will cease to  have the option / right to have full amount  ever in your life time
(b)   You  will always be  helpless in case of any  opportunity to invest lump sum money in some good investment

3) Rate of Return on capital for taking the case of NOC VALUE Rs.300000/-

(a)     Annuity payment of Rs.2225/- under option “F” based on monthly payment mode ,rate of return works out to be  @ 8.9% per annum
(b)   In case of FDR at an interest rate of @ 9.5% per annum your income will be Rs. 2375/- per
Month
(c)    In case you are senior citizen and FDR at an  interest rate  @ 10.5% per annum your income will be Rs. 2625/- per Month
(d)   Most of all you are the  sole owner  of the capital.Means except in option F ,purchase price will not be returned .

Special Attention

Under no circumstances option be exercised under A , B , C , D , E Options. As there will be no return of CAPITAL during life time and even after Death.

Complaint Format

Subject: Non receipt of Option Form

It is submitted that I am holder of a policy – NEW JEEVAN DHARA ( T&T : 145-11 ), as per Ready Recknor issued by your corporation at the time of issue of policy for NEW JEEVAN DHARA showing annual premium for various pension amounts UNDER RETURN OF CASH OPTION, I have the option to receive Rs. ………………. Lacs if, I opt for NOTIONAL CASH OPTION (deferment period is more than 10 years) instead of guaranteed rates printed on the policy (rates specified in the schedule oh the policy) or immediate annuity rates

According to Special Provisions (3) & (4) printed on the policy, the option has to be exercised at least 6 months before date of vesting, but not earlier than 12 months before date of vesting. However it is regretted that no option has been sought from me by your office till date, even though more than 4.5 months period has already been elapsed from the exercisable period of option and only less than 1.5 months have left now. I have come to know that some policy holders received the option forms after they filed the complaints but I have still not been attended to and waiting for the same. Therefore I request your good self to look into the matter and take necessary action in the matter at your earliest please.

Sincerely yours,
