The basic sum assured with bonus is paid on the date of maturity, if both the partners survive the selected term.

The sum assured is immediately payable in the event of death of one of the partners, to the surviving partner.

The surviving partner need not pay further premiums but the policy is kept in force and will continue to earn bonuses declared on the basis of valuations.
