In this article, you will get to know how you can revive your lapsed LIC Insurance Policy and how you can get your money back.
If your policy has lapsed due to non-payment of premiums within the due date, the terms and conditions of the policy contract are rendered void, till you revive your policy.
A lapsed policy has to be revived by payment of the accumulated premiums with interest as well as giving the health requirements as required. One can easily get their money back from lapsed LIC policy by reviving it.
One can get money-back from lapsed LIC policy only by reviving it. The revival of LIC Insurance policy can be done in 5 ways:
The policyholder can revive their lapsed life insurance policy by paying all the unpaid premiums including the interests altogether.
However, sometimes the policyholder is asked for some medical reports under Form 680 for the revival of the LIC policy.
Under special revival, the intimation date of the policyholder can be change and the insured shall pay only one due premium according to their age during revival.
A special revival scheme can be availed if the insured person is unable to pay the premium in a lump sum. Sometimes the policyholder is asked for some medical reports under Form 680 for the revival of the LIC policy. Conditions under the special revival of LIC policy are:
An installment revival scheme is especially for those policyholders who are unable to pay premiums of their LIC policy in a single go and wishes to pay in installments. Under this scheme, the policy can be revived by paying the amount in the following ways.
The rest of the due premium is to be paid by the insured in equal installments within 2 years along with the regular premium as per the tenure of the policy.
If the survival benefit due date comes earlier than the inline for renewal date, then the insured person can avail survival benefit to revive the policy.
However, the policyholder will have to pay the excess amount in case the revival amount is more than the survival benefit. In the same way, if the revival amount is less than the survival benefit, then the rest of the remaining amount is paid back to the insured person.
Under this scheme, the policy can be revived by the policyholder by taking a loan if, on the date of revival, the policy acquires a surrender value.
The insured person will have to pay the additional amount in case there is any deficit in the revival amount. If the loan amount is more than the revival amount than the extra amount will be paid to the insured person.
The lapsed policy is different from the surrendering policy. Under surrendering of policy, the policyholder himself opt-out of the policy, whereas policy lapses due to many other reasons like not having money to pay for premiums.
When you opt-out of a policy before its maturity, then it is called surrendering of the policy, and the amount that you receive at the time is LIC policy surrender value. Normally, with a regular policy, the LIC policy surrender value can be calculated only after the policyholder has paid the premiums continuously for 3 years. However, surrender of policy is not recommended since the LIC surrender value will always be subsequently low. Also in the case of surrender before 3 years, no surrender value is offered.
The revival of your LIC insurance policy provides an option to extend the coverage, as the insurers cannot decline the revival of your life insurance policy because the option of the revival of a lapsed policy is always present in the original policy document.
One can easily get their money back from lapsed LIC policy by reviving it.
