FAQs

  • Q1. Is there a grace period that can be availed under the LIC Endowment Plus Policy?

    A1. A grace period of 30 days is allowed for the payment of yearly, half-yearly and quarterly premiums, while 15 days is allowed for the payment of monthly premiums.  This is calculated from the date of the first unpaid premium.  The policy will remain in full force during the grace period, with the risk cover, unless the premium is not paid even after the grace period, in which case the policy will lapse.

    The rider premiums which are to be paid along with the base policy enjoy the same grace period.

  • Q2. Is it possible to receive the death benefit in instalments under the LIC Endowment Plus Policy?

    A2. Yes, the option to avail of the death benefit in instalment over a period of 5, 10 or 15 years is available, provided the policy is in full force and all the premiums have been paid.  The death claim is then paid to the nominee and no changes are allowed.  The nominee is not allowed to switch plans or add rider benefits.  

    The instalment is calculated by dividing the total number of units, on intimation of death by the total number of instalments.  The first instalment is payable at the date of intimation of death.  

  • Q3. Can the LIC Endowment Plus Plan be revived if the policy has been discontinued?

    A3. If premiums remain unpaid beyond the grace period, they will automatically lapse.  These lapsed policies can be revived in 3 consecutive years from the date of the first unpaid premium or up to the date of maturity, whichever is earlier.  The corporation holds the rights to deny the revival of a policy if they decide to so.  The rider benefits, if they have been used previously can be revived along with the base policy and not exclusively.

  • Q4. Can the LIC Endowment Plus Policy be surrendered?

    A4. Yes.  The policy can be surrendered anytime during the policy term if all due premiums have been paid on time.
