Who is a LIC Merchant?

LIC of India conducts all of its business across various channels and has recently introduced merchant registrations. A merchant license may be applied for by an entity or a LIC organization. LIC merchants are similar to LIC offices in that they can provide most LIC services to walk-in customers. LIC Merchants have access to the LIC system, which allows them to view policy data, loans, surrenders, and other information. All of these programs can be requested via them.

LIC Merchant and Agent

LIC has an extensive network of LIC agents and LIC merchants working on the Corporation’s behalf. They assist in registering citizens for insurance and the subsequent collection of premiums. The commission is charged to LIC agents and merchants as a percentage of the premium received for policies sold by them.

How to Become LIC Merchant or Agent?

Here's a rundown of how to become a LIC Merchant or agent:

Eligibility Requirements Documents

To become a LIC agent, one must be at least 18 years old and a citizen of India to participate. One's Date Of Birth (DOB ) certificate will be required for this. If one doesn't have their DOB stamp, they can go to a nearby Municipal Corporation to get one. 

Qualify in 10th Standard from School

To become a LIC Agent, one must pass the 10th-grade exams and have a school-issued and signed official certificate. If one has passed the tenth grade but doesn't have one's diploma, they can apply for one from their school.

Must have A PAN Card

It's the last piece of paperwork one needs to become a LIC agent. One may need their PAN Card or PAN Number (Permanent Account Number).  If one doesn't have one, one can go there and register, or one can also apply online.

Interview and Training

If one has all of the relevant documentation, one is ready to proceed to the next level. One can meet with the development officer at one's local LIC branch. Their interview will be conducted by a development officer, and if they are eligible, they will be accepted into the LIC Training program. There will be a 25-hour training program. 

Prepare For IRDAI Exam

One must register for the IRDAI exam after completing the personal training. Make sure you study thoroughly for the test. One may inquire about preparation materials at the LIC Branch. They also provide free books. This exam will determine whether one is eligible to work as a LIC Agent. To advance to the next level and receive the appointment letter, one must score at least 40% on the test.

Appointment Letter & Interview

One will receive an appointment letter with a special code after successfully qualifying for the test. One is now required to meet with a development officer for a personal interview and additional assistance. A special development officer will be assigned and his name and position will be included in the appointment letter one gets.

Attending Interview& Training will be the Officer

This is the final move, and after the interview and the LIC training, an individual can become a respectable LIC Merchant or Agent. Another interview will be taken by the development officer. This time, he will provide the trainees with some facts, will direct them further, and will tell them how to get started as well as other important details needed to be a successful LIC agent. With this, one can get all set to begin their career as a LIC Agent.
