He is assured of a Monthly Income of Rs. 50,000 every month during the entire term, for his family in case he is not around. He enrolls for the life cover in three easy steps: Step 1: Fills up the Base Sum Assured and Policy Term as per his needs Step 2: Provides his personal and health details in a simple online application form and uploads the required documents Step 3: Makes the premium payment of Rs. 13,734 p.a (excluding service tax & cess and assuming he is a non-smoker and is in good health) A medical test gets conducted at the time and place of his convenience.

It takes his wife some time to come to terms with the reality that Gaurav is no longer around and she alone has to take care of their son, Rohit. Neha approaches the nearest branch of Reliance Nippon Life Insurance with Gaurav's Policy Document. The branch's customer care executive helps her in completing the necessary claim forms, gives her the acknowledgement immediately and forwards the documents to the claims department. Neha is worried about how she will provide for her family's needs. However, within a few days the claim cheque of Gaurav's Reliance Online Income Protect gets delivered at her home and she receives:

# This illustration is for Life Equity Fund 3 and Life Pure Equity Fund 2 Let’s look at five different scenarios after Suresh invests in this policy:
Scenario 1 : Suresh does not get enough time out of his business and cannot manage his investments actively; therefore he opts for Target Maturity Option under Auto-Managed options. This strategy automatically manages his investments by changing the allocation between the debt and equity funds based on a predefined schedule. Starting from the sixth policy year, as the time to maturity and to fulfill his financial goals draws closer, his investments are moved.
Scenario 2 : Suresh likes to take control and thus opts for the Self-Managed option. He decides to invest in Life Equity Fund 3, since he believes the equity markets will be bullish in the coming years. He stays invested till maturity of the policy. The expected benefit received by Suresh is as follows:
Annual Amount: Rs 2,50,000
Total Amount Paid: Rs 50,00,000
@8%: Rs 1,00,05,620
@4%: Rs 63,84,968
Scenario 3 : After three years of staying invested in the Life Equity Fund 3, Suresh feels that equity market will be going down soon due the recent turmoil within the economy. He switches his investment to Life Corporate Bond Fund 1. He has thus locked in the returns from the rise in the equity markets and is now enjoying stable returns from the bond market.
Scenario 4 : In the third policy year, Suresh dies in an unfortunate accident. His wife, who is his nominee, gets the Death Benefit.
