LIC has been a trusted brand offering numerous insurance products and services, which cover people adequately irrespective of their economic background. Having an insurance plan from LIC is definitely recommended for all. However, it is also important to know the various requisites of the policies including the late LIC payment charges. Let us understand its importance in detail.
Paying an insurance premium on time is important because it guarantees the policyholder to continue receiving the financial coverage that the policy offers. If you fail to pay the premiums on time, your policy lapses and if that happens you cease to enjoy the benefits offered under your plan. Similar to buying an LIC premium, it is equally important to stay updated with the prerequisites of the policy including its various conditions. You must know that to keep your policy active and to stay away from paying LIC late fee or penalty, you must make the LIC policy payment timely.
Late LIC payment charges levied on a policy premium is calculated as per the time lapse between the expiry date and the subsequent months delayed in making the payments.
|Charges of LIC Late Fee (Re 1/premium)||1st Month||2nd Month||3rd Month||4th Month||5th Month||6th Month|
Below are some conditions that are required to be noted regarding LIC premium payment:
In case your LIC premium payment due date expires or you fail to make the timely payment even during the grace period and the policy lapses, you still have options of reviving the policy. There are various schemes as explained below that can be followed to revive a lapsed policy.
# Ordinary Revival Scheme – Under this scheme, the policyholder is required to pay the arrears of all the unpaid premiums of his/her LIC policy in one single payment with interest. There are various terms and conditions that need to be considered while reviving your LIC policy via this scheme. You are also required to offer a good health declaration form along with a medical certificate if required
# Special Revival Scheme – This scheme allows the Date of Commencement (DOC) of the policy to move in a way that the policy doesn’t lapse. So, you can make the payment within the revival period in one single premium. Other documents like medical certificates might also be required like in the above case. Further, you must note that:
# Survival Benefit Cum Revival Scheme – This scheme is used mainly to revive the money back policies. Here, the policyholder can use the survival benefit gained from the policy to revive it. However, this is possible if the date of receiving survival benefit is before the revival date. If the survival benefit amount is less as compared to premium due, the policyholder is expected to make the additional payment from his/her pocket. And if the survival benefit amount is more than the due payment, the extra amount is paid back to the policyholder.
# Loan Cum Survival Scheme – Under this scheme, if the customers of LIC policy have acquired a surrender value on the policy, he/she can take a loan against it to revive the lapsed policy. Thus, you can pay the premium arrears as a loan from the accumulated amount available.
