The main USP of LIC policies is the bonuses they offer on their plans. So, it becomes important to know the updated rates for better decision-making.

The latest bonus rates announced by LIC were for the year 2020-21 for all of its traditional plans. LIC has not revised the bonus rates for the 2023-24 fiscal year as well. So you can continue to use the previous rates for your calculations.

Let’s first understand the types of bonuses declared by LIC and how to calculate the bonus on a plan based on these bonus rates.

Types of LIC Bonuses and Additions

There are four types of bonuses declared by LIC.

#1. Simple Reversionary Bonus

You get a bonus on your policy every year till your policy matures, which is the Simple Reversionary Bonus.

Simple Reversionary Bonus is declared per thousand of the Sum Assured Amount in each financial year and added to your policy amount. SRB is paid at the end of the maturity period or on the death of the policyholder, whichever is earlier.

For instance, if you are holding a Jeevan Laabh Policy with a Sum Assured amount of Rs. 10 lakhs and policy term for 25 years. The bonus declared this year is Rs. 47, then your bonus amount would be Rs. 47,000 for the current year that you will receive on maturity.

#2. Final Additional Bonus (FAB) or Terminal Bonus

Final Additional Bonus (FAB) is the second type of bonus declared by LIC. FAB is a one-time payment and paid only to those policyholders who have a policy of longer duration, and have paid premiums for the complete tenure. Policies having Guaranteed Additions are not eligible for FAB.

Given below is an indicative list of Final Additional Bonus.

#3. Loyalty Additions

Loyalty Addition is a non-guaranteed bonus that is given as an appreciation of being a long-term loyal customer of LIC. Loyalty Addition is also declared per thousand of sum assured.

There are some exceptions, In some policies, Loyalty Addition is declared after completion of a certain policy period. For example, in Jeevan Saral Policy, policyholders get loyalty additions after completing a minimum of 10 years.

Similar to FAB, policyholders (or nominees) get LoyaltyAddition at the end of the maturity period or on death whichever is earlier subject to completion of the minimum policy period.

#4. Guaranteed Additions (GA)

Some of the LIC Policies offer Guaranteed Additions which means that policyholders will get an assured amount of sum for a specific period.

For example, the Jeevan Shree-1 policy provides Guaranteed Additions of Rs.50 per year (per thousand of sum assured) for the first five years of the policy. Another such policy is Komal Jeevan.

Similar to other bonuses, you get it at the time of maturity or claim.

How to Calculate LIC Bonus

You are now aware that LIC declares bonuses as per thousands of sum assured. To calculate the bonus, you have to divide your sum assured amount by thousand (1000) and then multiply it by the given bonus rates for that year (You will get the latest bonus rates in the next section).

Bonus Amount = Bonus Rate x (Sum Assured/1000)

For instance, You have bought a policy New Children Money Back Plan (832) with a sum assured of Rs. 10 lakhs and the policy term is 25 years.

The bonus declared for terms above 20 years is Rs. 38 (for the year 2021-22).

Let’s calculate:

Bonus Amount = Rs. 38 x (10,00,000/1,000) -> Rs. 38 x 1,000 -> Rs. 38,000.

  1. Hi,
    Thanks for posting this. From the above chart it looks like Final Additional Bonus (FAB) applies only to policy term of 17 or more. I thought of taking jeevan anand plan for 16 years. But after looking this, is it wise to go for 17 years since then only FAB is applicable?

    Kindly suggest.

  2. If we take loan on policy and continue to pay interest as well as premium, will bonus gets affected. I have Jeevan Anand and paying since last 6 years. I pay premium of 10K per year and then take loan of 10K from LIC.
    then continue to pay interst for 10K every year and also continue to pay 10K premium. Will there be any effect on bonus since loan is taken ?

  3. Hi,
    I have two LIC policies:
    1)Jeevan Anand (149): SA -1000000 / Policy Term:69(premium payment term:24yrs)
    Question: What is Policy term: 69 and what will I be getting? Secondly will I be getting any FAB on Jeevan Anand Policy?

    2)The Endowment Assurance Polcy(T.N.14): Under this I have 21 bonds and I pay one time payment each each year. Each Bond SA -70000, Term 24yrs
    Question: Is this a good policy and will I be getting FAB on this other then the Bonus that I earn. Do you have a calculator for this policy.

    Thanks a lot

  8. I have a policy jeevan shree 1 table 162 ,sum assured 700000, premium paying term 10 policy for 15 years.what will be the maturity value of this plan

  9. The disadvantage of bonus system is that bonus is payable only on maturity or death or after some specific period while units system add return on investments etc on yearly cash value which can be withdrawn any year in addition to on maturity or death.
