In the event of unfortunate death, your beneficiary would get the sum assured (less any withdrawals made during the 2 years immediately preceding death) or market value of units in the Main Account whichever is higher. Plus, if you have invested any top-up premiums, then you would get back the market value of units in the Supplementary Account. After attaining the age of 60, all the partial withdrawals made after the age of 58, will be deducted from the Death Benefit. Where the life insured is a minor, the Death Benefit during the first 5 years of the policy term or below the age of 18, will only be the greater of all premiums paid (excluding rider premiums) and the value of the units. Top-up premium Besides regular premiums, whenever you have excess money, you can invest it by way of top-up premiums, without any commitment to bring them again in the coming year (subject to a maximum of 25% of the cumulative premiums paid till that date). You can invest your surplus money across a combination of our Dynamic Funds and units bought from this amount will be held in separate Supplementary Accounts for each top-up. In the event of maturity or death, you would receive the market value of these topup units. Partial Withdrawals/ Surrender Kotak Safe Investment Plan II allows you early exit options through partial withdrawal of funds or complete surrender of the policy. With this plan, you can your access top-up amount in the investment after completion of the 3rd policy year, with no penalty charges from year 7 onwards (subject to retaining a minimum balance of one annualized basic premium). You may access your top-up Amount in the Supplementary Account for funds without any charges. The top-up premiums should complete a lock-in period of 3 years from the date of investing the top-up amount before you can access the investment. Withdrawals will be allowed only after the life insured attains the age of 18. The Guaranteed Maturity Value will be reduced to factor in the withdrawals made by you. Limited Premium Payment If you wish to pay off all premiums over a short period of time, instead of the full term, we have the Limited Premium Payment option for you. This option allows you to pay off your premiums over tenure shorter than your policy term. Under this option, you can pay off your premiums over 3, 5, 6, 7, 10 or 15 years.

Guaranteed Maturity Value Most investors who stay away from equity do so not because they do not want to earn higher equity linked returns but because they fear loss of capital. To protect their money from capital losses they invest in low return debt instruments. We, at Kotak Life Insurance, having understood this concern of our investors have developed a unique proposition of a Guaranteed Maturity Value, underpinning your investment in equity. This unique position arises from the fact that the plan offers an option to invest up to 80% in equity via the Guaranteed Growth Fund. On reaching maturity, the Company would pay out the Guaranteed Maturity Value or the market value of units, whichever is higher. Which means that when the markets are in a bull phase, you will enjoy the market linked returns delivered on your portfolio. However, in a bear market, your investment is still safe as you are sure of getting the Guaranteed Maturity Value. In a nutshell, “Bulls You Win and Bears You Win”. The Guaranteed Maturity Value applies where all premiums have been paid up-to-date at maturity and will be reduce where partial withdrawals from the Main Account have been made. On maturity, you can withdraw the entire maturity proceeds and the policy would terminate. If the need is not immediate, you can just let the amount multiply or withdraw up to 50% of the proceeds. You can also elect to draw-down on the maturity proceeds for up to five years after maturity. Death Benefit Life is uncertain and you would not want to take a chance when it comes to your loved ones. Depending on your existing life cover and the need you have, this plan allows you to choose your life cover the sum assured on death: • • High Cover: Policy Term x Annual Premium. Low Cover: Greater of (5 x Annual Premium, 0.5 x Policy Term x Annual Premium).
