Jeevan Anand is a combination of Whole Life plan and the most popular Endowment plan. The plan provides the pre-decided Sum Assured and Bonuses at the end of the stipulated Premium Paying Term (PPT), but the risk cover on the life continues till death. Premiums are usually payable for premium payment term selected at inception of the policy. This policy not only makes provisions for the family of the Life Assured in event of his early death but also assures a lump sum at a desired age. The lump sum can be used for Retirement planning, Vacation planning or Asset creation planning during the balance time period of his life or in any other way considered suitable at that time.


The primary purpose of whole life plan is protection; however it has many features that make it a good place to put your money – and one that can be the foundation of a diversified investment portfolio. Unfortunately, life insurance is always seen by us in other way. The risks that have been taken because of the popularization of equity and mutual funds mostly went down in value, but there was only one asset class that went up, which were the participating endowment plans.

Merits of Jeevan Anand policy

  • Protection for your family against uncertainties of life like death, disability and diseases

  • Dual Protection with two Sum Assured

  • Can help during your retirement to enhance your pension amount

Demerits of Jeevan Anand policy

  • Low Return

  • High Surrender Charges

  • Low Liquidity


At the end, I would say any Whole Life Insurance Plan should be used as an extra life cover in your life. It should NOT be the primary long term solution for your life insurance needs. And it is very vital to have an adequate life cover due to day to day uncertainties in our life. LIC has a few policies similar to Jeevan Anand, hence it may not be get the distinction of being the “Best LIC Policy in India”.

    Hi suresh,

    I have a Jeevan Tarang Policy of 5.0L (Term 15 years, Annual Premium Rs. 34361.00, already Paid Five (5) Premium).
    If I surrender now i am getting Rs.1,26,000 amount I enquired at LIC Branch.
    Shall I make it Paid up policy and invest the premium amount (Rs. 34361.00) in PPF or shall I continue to pay full term premium.

    Please advice.

    • Av Suresh

      This one, like other LIC policies has failed to generate returns for investors. You can make it paid up or even surrender it totally and use the lumpsum amount to invest in other good products.
