LIC Cancer Cover


LIC Cancer Cover Plan is a regular premium plan in which premiums can be paid Yearly or Half yearly for a policy term ranging from 10 to 30 years. The policy can be purchased offline as well as online.

LIC Cancer Cover Plan Options

LIC Cancer Cover offers 2 plan options. The benefits will vary accordingly.

Option I - Level Sum Insured: 
The Basic Sum Insured shall remain unchanged throughout the policy term. So if you choose a cover of Rs. 10 lakhs, it stays that way throughout the policy term.

Option II - Increasing Sum Insured: 
The amount of cover increases by 10% of Basic Sum Insured every year for the first five years. In case the policyholder is diagnosed with cancer this increase will stop even within the first 5 years. So if you take a 10 lakhs cover, it will keep increasing by Rs. 1 lakh every year for 5 years (so it can go to a maximum of Rs. 15 lakhs). In case you are diagnosed with cancer after the increased cover has reached Rs. 13 lakhs, it would not increase in the next 2 years.
