  • Stating the specifics in the proposal form

After you’ve selected a suitable insurance plan, you need to fill up the proposal form. Typically, doing so requires stating your personal, medical, and financial details. This helps the insurer underwrite the policy and issue it.

  • The documentation 

This step particularly requires you to submit a set of documents for the policy issuance. Below is the list of the same:

  1. Your current address proof. It could be your passport, driving license, aadhaar card, voter’s ID card, utility bills, or rent agreement.
  2. An identity proof could be any of the above mentioned documents except for utility bills or rent agreements. PAN Card would also do.
  3. A document that certifies your age. Probably your passport, driving license, Aadhaar card, voter ID card, birth certificate, etc.
  4. Lastly, a document that provides evidence of your income, typically Form 16, salary slip, financial statement, bank statement, etc.
  5. Passport-size photographs.
  • Undergoing health-checkups

This step might be required if your age is high or if you choose a high sum assured. The insurer assesses your health risk before issuing the policy in these cases and a medical check-up becomes necessary before the policy is issued.

  • Paying the premium

After you submit your proposal and complete the health checkups, you can pay the premium online and your policy would be issued. PayBima offers a range of online payment modes and you can choose a mode based on your suitability. 

Lapse of the policy and revival

In scenarios when you do not pay the entire premium within the due date, your policy would lapse i.e. the benefits offered by it would either cease or reduce. A lapsed policy is not recommended as you lose out on the benefits offered by Bajaj Allianz life insurance plans. As such, the company allows you to revive the lapsed policy within a specified tenure. For doing so, you’d have to:

  • Pay the remaining premium
  • Clear the interest on the same
  • Submit a written statement assuring your good health

Remember that reviving a policy would involve fresh underwriting before the policy is revived. In case, you wish to revive the policy using PayBima, you could do that by calling 800 267 67 67 or by dropping in an email at paybima.care@mahindra.com. PayBima would, then, help you revive your lapsed policy easily.
