BSNL or MTNL users can simply call 1251 from their mobile numbers.

Surrender Value is the amount that is paid to the policyholder by the company if he wishes to discontinue the policy. However, it can be paid only if the life insured has paid all the premiums, whether it is monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, or yearly for a period of three years. In order to check the value online, one can visit the official website of LIC and fill in the required details. One can calculate the surrender value by using the formula mentioned below:
Basic Sum Assured (Number of Premiums Paid) + Total Bonus Received x Surrender Value Factor.
It is essential for each policyholder to keep a check on the plans at regular intervals because, in the busy schedules of everyday life, there is a major possibility that the life insured may forget to pay his premiums on time.
Thus, it is essential that the customer check the status once after every two months to stay updated about any sort of changes regarding the plan. Moreover, if the life insured fails to pay the premium even after the grace period, which is often 15-30 days as per the company's guidelines, the policy might get lapsed and the policyholder as well as his family gets deprived of the benefits that are offered by the plan.
The nearest servicing branch of the Corporation typically sends maturity claim intimations two months prior to the maturity of the policy. Then, the life insured or his dependent, in the case of death of the policyholder before the end of the tenure of the policy, has to submit the discharged receipt in form number 3825 along with the original policy documents at least one month prior to the due date of the policy so that the entire amount can be paid to the customer before the due date of the maturity claim. Along with the policy documents, a few other documents such as identity proof of the policyholder / ID proof of nominee along with death certificate in case of death of the policyholder, age proof if it has not been submitted previously, a cancelled cheque, or a copy of the policyholder's bank passbook and an NEFT mandate form.
Therefore, the policyholders should be up to date with any sort of updates that might also affect the policy that he is associated with. It is due to reasons as such that he should know the policy he purchases in-depth and purchase a plan that can meet all his needs and requirements to receive full benefits from the plan.
As insurance allows the life insured's family to lead a comfortable life even in the absence of a regular income, it should be made sure that the policy is revised thoroughly before making the purchase.
