LIC Policies – NEFT 

LIC offers a wide variety of insurance plans ranging from the pure protection plan to savings plan that meet the policyholder’s requirements. The sum assured amount provided by the life insurance protects and secures your loved ones from any financial burden in case of your unfortunate demise. The claim settlement ratio (CSR) is another important factor that measures the percentage of life insurance claims which is settled by an insurance company during a financial year. LIC, being the biggest company in the insurance sector has a claim settlement ratio of 96.69% for 2019-20 FY, indicating a hassle-free and smooth settlement process. 

Earlier, till 2021, LIC was offering maturity or survival payments through other modes such as cheques. But now the existing mode is NEFT i.e., the electronic payment mode that credits the payment directly into a bank account. As per LIC guidelines, the buyer is not allowed to use any other mode of payment other than NEFT. The electronic payments of maturity or survival benefits are settled using the NEFT that credits all money to your registered bank account. All the assured must submit the NEFT form to receive payments. However, earlier the submission of the NEFT mandate form was offline. But avoiding visiting the branch specifically during COVID times, LIC introduced an online facility to register NEFT for receiving benefits. 

National Electronic Fund Transfer (NEFT)

NEFT is an electronic system that transfers all funds from one account to another in any bank across the country. This is a simple, secure, and cost-effective system. To make a smooth NEFT transfer of payments, the registered bank account should also be enabled in the accounts of their customers. This entire system is being operated by the RBI i.e., Reserve Bank of India. 

Previously, customers had to visit their nearest LIC home branches and make a request for a cheque. After the payment of the settlement via cheque, customers have to again visit their respective banks to transfer that credited amount. The earlier process was time-consuming. Now the electronic fund transfer facilities are quite convenient and offer various benefits for the customers: 

  • No extra charges are debited to receive their payments through NEFT
  • Branches situated in any section of the country can get the payments from LIC 
  • Customer is informed via SMS or email when money is deposited into the respective bank account 
  • In case of any issue, you can track your Unique transaction reference number and resolve the issue 

NEFT Mandate Form 

Customers are required to fill NEFT mandate form to enable NEFT for their easy settlement of payment. This form can be downloaded from LIC’s official website. Following details are also requested by LIC in the NEFT process: 

  • Name of the applicant 
  • Address
  • Policy number
