What is a NEFT ?

It is a nationwide system that facilitates to transfer a fund from one account of any bank branch to another account of any bank branch. This system is operated by Reserve Bank of India. For transfer of funds the participating banks have to be NEFT enabled. At present around 74000 Banks all over India are participating under NEFT system. For details please refer to RBI website

Advantages of NEFT system for LIC Policy holders / Annuitants

  1. The policy holder / claimant will get the credit in his own account on the due date of payment irrespective of the location of his bank.
  2. NEFT will ensure speedier and secure mode of payment.
  3. There will be no extra charges to the policy holders / claimant.
  4. SMS and E-mail alerts may also be provided wherever the policy payment is made to the policyholder/ claimants’ account through NEFT.
  5. Each payment from LIC through NEFT will create one UTR(Unique Transaction Reference) number. If there is any problem in credit to the account, policy holders / claimant can confirm from their bank by quoting this UTR no. In other words it is easy to track a transaction of NEFT, using UTR number

Important information to the Policy holder / claimants opting for NEFT

  1. All the items mentioned in the mandate form should be filled correctly. This mandate can be used for 6 different policy numbers of the same policyholder..
  2. The completed mandate for NEFT should be sent to Branch, servicing at least one of the policies, listed in the mandate.
  3. The policy holder / claimant should also submit either a cancelled blank cheque leaf or the photo copy of the page of the passbook / cheque book where details of the Bank account are mentioned.
  4. If within two days of the due date, the amount is not credited to your Bank Account, then you may contact the branch where you have submitted the NEFT mandate.
  5. The account of the policy holder / annuitant should be operational at the time of receipt of policy payment.
  6. Before submitting the mandate form, the policyholder/ claimant should confirm from his bank that it is NEFT enabled.
  7. Policy holder’s/ claimants’ name under the policy should match with that of Bank A/c, else it is likely to be rejected.
  8. NRI accounts are guided by FEMA regulations; LIC has decided not to include NRI accounts for fund transfer. So policy holders / annuitants are requested not to submit their NRI account details.
  9. After submission of NEFT details, if there is any change in bank details then fresh mandate form will have to be submitted.
  10. If you are getting the annuity payments through ECS mode from our IPP cells, you may opt for payment by NEFT by submitting the mandate or continue to receive the annuity payment in the existing ECS mode.

    क्या maturity claim पाने के लिए ओरिजिनल policy जमा करना जरूरी है ? यदि हाँ, तो क्या नेफ्ट फॉर्म, cancelled cheque आदि किसी भी निकटतम शाखा में जमा कराई जा सकती है, या उसे मूल शाखा में जमा करना जरूरी है ?

    • Maturity Claim के लिए पॉलिसी जमा कराना जरूरी है। एवं समस्त दस्तावेजों को मूल शाखा में ही जमा कराना होगा।

    I have submitted Claim form along with NEFT form and other documents in the LIC Branch but have not received the amount after 1 Month of submitting.Please help me what to do.

    • Please confirm the due date of claim payable to you (In the case of survival benefit or maturity benefit), it is payable only on or after the date when a claim is due for payment. If the claim is already due then you must ask the branch for the reason of delay in your payment.

  •' Mohd.Akeel

    What is the procedure to know Nominee name if The policy gets matured and policy holder dies and the computer in LIC Branch is not showing Nominee details .How to claim if all receipts and bond have lost.

    • It not possible to know the name of the nominee of any policy if not available in policy details in LIC branch. Though LIC keeps the original proposal form of policyholder throughout the policy term in any policy, so you can know from there. If you have the policy number, then class 1 legal heir should claim the benefits in the policy or ask the claim department official for the proper solution or method of claim in such cases.

  •' jagshir

    my policy maturity date is 28/01/2017 and my last and final payment date was 287/2016 (this is already paid),, I also registered with NEFT, tell me how many days I receive my all claim completely,,

    jagshir singh

    • Payment in any policy is made only on or after the due date. In the case of your policy, maturity date is 28/01/2017, therefore maturity benefit is only payable on or after 28/01/2017. So. you will get your payment on 28/01/2017 or within 1-2 days after it.
