The maximum amount that can be partially withdrawn is 50% of the Fund Value as on the date of partial withdrawal per policy year.
SHIKSHA PLUS SUPER offers customers the choice of investing premiums in five investment funds offered by Max Life Insurance with an option of Dynamic Fund Allocation and Systematic Transfer Plan. Dynamic Fund Allocation frees the policyholders from selecting the investment funds manually since this function automatically invests between equity and debt oriented funds in a pre-defined proportion that keeps changing as policy nears maturity. This investment strategy endeavors to safeguard their fund from any capital erosion by increasing the fund allocation in debt funds as policy progresses towards maturity. Systematic Transfer Plan, on the other hand, replicates the rupee cost averaging method thereby allowing the policyholder to benefit from the market volatility.
