Policy TypeTerm Insurance
LIC's Tech-Term plan is a Non-Linked, Non-Participating, Pure Risk Premium plan which shall be sold online only and hence no intermediaries will be involved. Under this plan, there is the flexibility to choose from two death benefit options i.e. Level Sum Assured and Increasing Sum Assured.

Key Features Of LIC's Tech-Term Plan

Like every other policy, you can buy this policy as a non-smoker & smoker. And for both the premium rates will be different for obvious reasons. 

In fact, if you are a smoker, you have to go for an additional medical test like the Urinary Cotinine test. Based on the findings of the Urinary Cotinine test, the Non-Smoker/Smoker premium amount will be calculated.

The final sum assured value will be decided based on the death benefit option you opt for. For more details read the policy death benefits options below. There are 2 types of death benefits available.
Option I: Level Sum Assured: “Absolute amount assured to be paid on death” shall be an amount equal to Basic Sum Assured, which shall remain the same throughout the policy term.
Option II: Increasing Sum Assured: “Absolute amount assured to be paid on death” shall remain equal to Basic Sum Assured till completion of the fifth policy year. Thereafter, it increases by 10% of Basic Sum Assured each year from the sixth policy year till the fifteenth policy year till it becomes twice the Basic Sum Assured. From sixteenth policy year and onwards, the “Absolute amount assured to be paid on death” remains constant i.e. twice the Basic Sum Assured, till the policy term ends.

Tax Benefits - This plan will have benefits under Section 80C and Section 10 (10D).
