LIC Premium Payment Methods

When you buy a LIC policy, you express your premium payment frequency to suit your financial status and convenience. Thus, you can choose to pay the premium monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, and yearly. However, the monthly frequency has gained popularity due to its pocket-friendly nature. So, what are ways to pay the premium? 

  1. Online Payment Channels:

    LIC Portal  Authorized Bank  Franchisees Merchants
    Net Banking Axis Bank  AP Online Premium Point 
    Debit Card  Corporation Bank MP Online  Life-Plus 
    Credit Card  Suvidha  Retired LIC Staff
    Infoserve  Amazon Pay 
    Easy Bill Pay  Paytm 

    The above grid is only indicative and more options are available for paying a timely premium to avoid losing risk coverage. 

  2. Offline Payment Channels:

    You can pay the LIC premium offline at LIC Branches, authorized banks, and selected merchants. You can make payment in:

    • Cash

    • Cheque or Demand Draft 

    • Standing Instructions

    • You can pay the premium only for the current financial year. It implies that no advance premium for the upcoming financial year is accepted. 

    • You do not pay any service charges for the facility. 

    • Premium payment is updated in real-time at the insurer.
