Check LIC Policy Status for Surrender Value:

You can compute the surrender value of your LIC policy by making use of the simple formula:

Basic Sum Assured (Total number of payable premiums/Number of paid premiums) + Total bonus you receive x Surrender Value Factor.

Let us consider the case of LIC Jeevan Anand Policy to understand the guidelines involved in it. In this example, LIC's surrender value is appropriate after three functioning years of the LIC policy and is equal to 30 percent of all the premiums except the paid premiums for the policy's first year together with a vested bonus. Accident benefit will not be included to compute the surrender value. Bonuses are the additional cash value that is paid at the time of death or the end of the tenure of the policy.

Now let us consider a case that the LIC policy that began in the year 2010 with 15 years of the policy term. The basic sum assured of this policy is Rs. 4 lakhs with an annual premium amount of Rs. 30,192. The bonuses collected until now will be around Rs. 70, 000. Now, if you have paid just 5 premiums so far, the policy’s surrender value will be 30 percent (5 x 30, 192) + the Final Bonus in today’s term.

LIC Policy Status via Call Centre

You can check the LIC policy status via the call center by using the company’s IVRS system. The Integrated Voice Response System, i.e. IVRS is made available 24x7, in almost all cities. Any buyer can get hold of LIC India IVRS by simply dialing UAN, i.e. Universal Access Number 1251. To make local calls from a BSNL or MTNL number, you just have to dial 1251, and users making calls using other than MTNL or BSNL numbers can get access to IVRS by calling the IVRS center number of the respective city followed by 1251. You can also get hold of the regional or zonal offices of LIC to check LIC policy status details of all kinds of policies. The regional offices are classified into eight zones viz, Northern Zone, Southern Zone, Western Zone, Eastern Zone, Central Zone, North Central Zone, South Central Zone, West Central Zone, East Central Zone, and West Central Zone.
