In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, LIC has made it easier for pensioners to submit the Certificate of Existence instead of visiting a branch office. Pensioners can now submit a digital Life Certificate or Certificate of Existence through LIC’s Jeevan Saakshya app. LIC has also started accepting submissions through the email facility and video call process. However, if you are not comfortable with these online means, the offline mode of submission through branch visits is still available.
