    How to File a Claim with LIC?

    • In order to file a claim with LIC, the policyholder or the nominee (in case of a death claim) will have to intimate the insurer of the upcoming claim.
    • In case of death claims, once the insurer has received the intimation, one of the branch offices will ask the nominee to submit certain documents, such as Claim form A, original policy, death certificate, proof of age, etc. Further, the insurer may also require the Post-Mortem Report, FIR, and the Police Investigation Report, if the death was caused due to an accident. A detailed list of required documents can be found on the insurer’s official website.
    • The insurer will then review the documents and settle the claim, provided all documents are deemed satisfactory. The number of claims that are rejected by LIC is very less. However, in case certain crucial information is suppressed or if the claim is fraudulent in nature, the claim may get rejected. In such cases, the Claims Review Committees will review the case and come to a decision.

    LIC Frequently Asked Questions

    1. Can I take a loan against my LIC life insurance policy?

    2. Not all life insurance policies come with an option to avail a loan. You will need to go through your policy document/brochure for more information on the same. Alternatively, you can also speak to an LIC representative or insurance advisor and find out if you are eligible to take a loan against your insurance policy.

    3. Can I surrender my policy during the tenure of my policy? Will I receive any benefit if I surrender my policy?

    4. In most cases, you can surrender your insurance policy at any time, provided at least a minimum of 3 years’ premiums have been paid. However, you must note that not all life insurance policies can be surrendered for a Surrender Benefit. If you are eligible to claim a Surrender Benefit, as per your policy’s terms and conditions, you can surrender the policy and claim the Surrender Value, which is a monetary benefit that will be paid to you, should you choose to discontinue your policy.

    5. Will I receive a discount if I pay my premium online?

    6. As of now, there are no discounts available for paying the premium amount online. However, there are several benefits in paying your premium online when compared to paying the premium through traditional, offline channels. On the LIC website, you can choose to pay your premium through ‘LIC Pay Direct’ without registering or through e-Services if you are a registered user via net banking or credit/debit card.

    7. Will I have to pay my premium as a one-time amount, or can I choose to pay the premium in instalments?

    8. The premium payment modes will be mentioned in the policy brochure. You will have to opt for a suitable mode of premium payment while purchasing the insurance policy. While certain policies are single premium policies, wherein you will have to pay the premium as a one-time instalment, certain other policies will allow you to choose a yearly, half-yearly, quarterly, or monthly mode of payment. No matter what mode you choose, you will have to ensure that the due premium is paid within the end of the grace period, to keep the policy from lapsing.

    9. My child is still a minor. Can I nominate her for my life insurance policy?

    10. Yes, nominating a minor child is permissible. However, if you choose to nominate someone under the age of 18 years, you will have to also a designate an appointee. The appointee will have to be over 18 years of age, and you will have to furnish all the necessary details about the appointee to the insurer.

    11. What are a few reasons that can lead to a claim being rejected?

    12. Your claim could be denied for any one of the following reasons:

      • Misrepresentation or nondisclosure of information at the time of purchasing the policy.
      • Making a claim after the policy has lapsed or expired.
      • If the claim is fraudulent in nature.
      • Policy exclusions. If the claim falls within the policy’s exclusion criteria, no benefit will be paid.

      In order to ensure that your claim does not get rejected, you should provide the correct information while purchasing the policy, make a nomination, and pay all your due premiums on time, before the completion of the grace period. At the time of making the claim, all the necessary documents will have to be submitted to the insurer in order to prevent delay in processing the claim. The life assured or the nominee will also have to ensure that the insurer is intimated of the claim without delay.

    13. How do I decide which insurance plan is best for me?

      • Firstly, before you purchase an insurance policy, you will need to research and compare between the different insurance policies that are offered by the insurer.
      • You will also have to take your needs and your family’s needs into consideration.
      • Next, decide the level of coverage you require and opt for an optimum sum assured. Your sum assured is linked to your premium amount. Hence, always choose a sum assured that will translate to affordable premium payments, but will still provide a sizeable benefit.
      • Go through your brochure or contact a representative to find out policy-specific information. If everything fits with your requirements, you can go ahead and purchase the policy.
    14. Will I be eligible to receive any tax benefits due to my life insurance policy?

    15. Yes, you can claim tax benefits for premiums paid and the benefits received, due to your life insurance policy, as per Section 80C and Section 10(10D) of the Income Tax, 1961. However, you will have to consult with a tax consultant/advisor from time to time since tax laws can be amended without notice.

    16. Will I have to intimate the insurer in case I change my residence during the policy tenure?

    17. Yes, it is mandatory to inform the insurer if you change your place of residence during the policy tenure. Without this, the insurer will not be able to send you important notices, such as discharge vouchers for benefits payable to you, premium payable notices, etc.

    18. What should I do in case I lose my original policy document?

    19. If you are absolutely certain that your policy is lost, you will need to apply for a duplicate policy. In order to do so, you will have to first contact the insurer and let them know of the loss. Next, you will need to post an ad in the newspaper reporting the loss, and send a copy of this newspaper to the LIC branch a month after posting the ad. Post this, LIC will issue a duplicate policy. You may have to pay certain charges for the duplicate policy.
