LIC special campaign: To encourage the continuation of risk cover in this difficult period, insurance behemoth LIC on Sunday said it will provide an opportunity for its policyholders to revive their lapsed policies. It has decided to launch a special revival campaign from August 10 till October 9 for its customers to revive their individual lapsed LIC policies. “In view of the prevailing circumstances, no concessions are being offered in medical requirements and the same are limited to late fee only; under plans other than term assurance and other high-risk plans,” LIC said in a statement.
“In view of the prevailing circumstances, no concessions are being offered in medical requirements and the same are limited to late fee only; under plans other than term assurance and other high-risk plans,” LIC said in a statement.
Under this Special Revival Campaign, it said, policies of specific eligible plans can be revived within five years from the date of the first unpaid premium subject to certain terms and conditions.
The policyholders will get 20 percent late fee concession for revival while 25 percent concession between Rs 1 lakh and Rs 3 lakh, it said.
The campaign will benefit those policyholders who were not able to pay premiums due to unavoidable circumstances and their policy lapsed. It always makes better sense to revive an old policy to restore insurance cover and LIC values its policyholders and their desire to continue their life insurance cover, LIC said.
