    How this plan works?

    • The employer first creates a trust and appoints Trustees to administer the gratuity scheme. However, it may be noted that the trust may or may not be created by employer. Therefore under the Policy, either Trustees or the employer can be a Policyholder. The Policyholder pays an initial contribution & annual contribution to Max Life Insurance Company towards gratuity liability. Initial contribution is the contribution in respect of any past service gratuity liability of the employer. This contribution may be paid at the time of the policy issuance or at any time during the first five policy year in not more than five annual installments. Annual contribution is the contribution in respect of any gratuity liability accruing in respect of the service completed by the employees in the current policy year. These payments would normally be based on upon the actuarial advice to the Trustees by an Independent consulting actuary (who is not employed by Max Life).
    • The Policyholder can invest the contributions in the investment funds offered by Max Life Insurance. Currently Max Life Insurance offers 4(four) investment funds under this scheme viz. Conservative Fund, Balanced Fund, Growth Fund and Bond Fund. Max Life Insurance will open and manage a “Unit Account” for the Policyholder in which units are allocated following the receipt of contributions and cancelled for the purpose of paying gratuity benefit and charges.
    • A member on either leaving service due to retirement/ resignation or on death/disability during the service, or any other such event that may terminate the employment after five years, Max Life Insurance will pay the benefit by redeeming the units in the investment funds to pay the gratuity benefit. The condition of continuous service of five years is not necessary if the termination of employment is due to death or disablement. The contributions and benefits under the product will be applicable as per scheme rules. Please note that the maximum liability of company shall be limited to the unit account value of the policy.

    Which funds you can invest in?

    A policyholder may choose to invest in any one or more of the four funds: Conservative, Balanced, Growth or Bond Fund in a given proportion chosen by them. At a later date, the policyholder can amend this proportion.

    The investment mix of these funds is as follows:

    Asset TypeConservative Fund (%)Bond Fund (%)Balanced Fund (%)Growth Fund
    Risk FactorsLow RiskLow RiskMedium RiskHigh Risk
    Government Securities50-8060-10020-500-30
    Corporate Bonds0-5020-400-30
    Money Market Instrument/Cash0-200-400-200-20

    The Company may add, amend, alter, combine or close a fund or funds as per the File & Use procedure of the IRDAI. Policyholders will be informed at least 60 days before such action and policyholder will be allowed to transfer their fund to alternative funds free of any charge provided their request is received by the Company before the schedule date of such amendment, alteration or the closure. In case policyholder does not respond within the given time period of 60 days, the company shall transfer the existing funds to the "least risky" of the available funds. "Least risky" refers to the fund with the highest proportion of Government securities.

    The investment objective of these funds is as follows:

    Conservative Fund (SFIN: ULGF00317/04/06GRATCONSER104): The investment objective of the Conservative Fund is to invest mainly in low risk assets for e.g. Government Securities and Corporate Bonds. The fund will not invest in equities.

    Bond Fund (SFIN: ULGF00707/02/13GRATPLBOND104): The investment objective of the Bond Fund is to generate higher returns in fixed income space (no exposure in equities) by a dynamic mix of investments in Government Securities and Corporate Bonds with liquidity support from a proportion invested in money market instruments.  Risk-reward trade-off between government securities and corporate bonds shall be the guiding factor to decide on the mix of the two investment classes.

    Balanced Fund (SFIN: ULGF00217/04/06GRATBALANC104): The investment objective of the Balanced Fund is to have a mix of Government Securities, Corporate Bonds, Equities and Money Market instruments so that the risk-return profile of the fund is balanced.

    Growth Fund(SFIN:ULGF00117/04/06GRATGROWTH104): The investment objective of the Growth Fund is to have a mix of Government Securities, Corporate Bonds, Equities and Money Market instruments with relatively higher exposure in equities in the expectation of higher returns from this fund.
