How to verify the status of a LIC policy

It is essential to check the condition of the LIC insurance, even more so than at the time of purchase. However, the busy schedules of modern life make it easy to forget about paying one’s premium or to pay after the grace period has expired, leading to penalties and additional fees. You can view the status of your LIC policy on the aspects of premium due dates, bonus values, maturity, and others. Through several convenient online services, Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) allows customers to complete their transactions and resolve all their problems immediately. Once offered only in-person at LIC branch locations, these e-services now provide access to many features.
