LIC Overview

LIC was incorporated in 1956 in India, and it has now completed sixty-two years, and today it stands proudly of the fact that it has been able to attain and become what was envisioned way back at the time of its inception.

When this is said, it does not mean its achievements in terms of premium collection and growth but its steadfastness on the motto from The Geeta “YogakshemamVahamyaham”. The company derives fulfillment from the fact that it has been able to secure the lives of the many crores of Indians till now in its journey.

What is Life Insurance?

The need for insuring life starts with life itself and slowly gets expressed as we progress along the journey of life. In life, we meet so many risks that we are left wondering what would happen if certain events were to impair our life as well as the lives of our family members?

Modern age man insures his/her life by paying nominal periodic amounts called premiums. Should any incident that has been covered by the policy occur during the policy term, then the policyholder or beneficiaries are entitled to claim the applicable benefits.

The most basic type of life insurance product is sole life cover. Under this policyholder can insure his life against death for the benefit of his/her survivors. In the event of the demise of policyholder within the policy, term beneficiaries can claim the sum assured and other benefits if applicable.

Other insurance based products can be health based insurance, units based insurance. Insurance products can have several riders and optional features.

Life insurance products are generally for the long term and can be renewed.

Who can avail Life Insurance Policies?

All Indian, as well as non-resident Indians, can avail life insurance plans. Certain plans can be only be availed upon attaining the age of maturity whereas certain other plans like child plans and endowment plans can be availed for minors under the guardianship of an adult who is generally a parent or relative.

In order to avail life insurance policy one needs to submit along with the form, certificate of age, identity and income as well as address proof. Documents in support of the same can be Adhaar Card, Pan Card, Ration Card, Matriculation Certificate, Income Statement, Passport, Electricity or Gas bill.
