Survival Benefit (Expected Benefit): In those life insurance policies, if the insurance is in operation before the expiry of the policy period, the financial benefit is paid to the policyholder at a percentage of the original sum assured after a certain period of time, the portion payable at that percentage is called survival benefit or expected benefit. Eg: In three installment insurance plans and multi installment insurance plans, the survival benefit or expected benefit is paid to the insured at specified intervals.

Paid-up Policy (Paid-Up Policy): After two or three years of policy in force, the policyholder can convert the original policy into a policy paying a relatively low one-time premium at a cash surrender value if desired. This type of convertible insurance is called a paid-up policy. Surrender value earned on paid-up insurance is treated as a one-time premium for that insurance with no further premium to be paid later. Paid insurance becomes a claim as per the original insurance contract. Bonuses earned during that period are distributed along with the sum assured in the with-profits insurance plan. Paid-up insurance is the future value of the insurance. This premium will either be received by the policyholder at maturity or will be paid to the policyholder’s nominee on premature death during the term.

Formula for determining price paid :   

Paid up value of insurance:

Principal Sum Assured χ Total Number of Annual Premiums Paid

Term of Insurance

Added to this will be bonus earned (if in profit insurance plan).
