The request form asks for basic details like date, name, signature, policy number, branch name. Submit the same to the nearest SBI Life Insurance Office along with your Aadhaar card (photocopy), PAN card (photocopy), canceled cheque, policy document, and premium receipts. In case the policy has not yet been issued, you can still cancel the same with the help of your application number. 

In case of any discrepancies, you can: 

  • Contact the SBI Life Insurance officials on the toll-free number 1800 267 9090 or 022 6645 6241 between 9:00 am to 9:00 pm every day or the Corporate Office Number 022 6191 0000. 

  • You can also mail your queries at the customer support mail of SBI Life. 

  • Mails can also be forwarded to the Head Client Relationship Manager of SBI Life.  

Secondly, in case you wish to cancel the policy on account of fraudulent selling, you can register a complaint at the insurer's website by providing your details along with the policy documents. The complaint is sent directly to the regional director. If no response is received, the matter is escalated to the corporate office and, after that, to the Regulator.      

Alternatively, you can also surrender the policy. The procedure to be followed is usually mentioned in the policy document itself.
