    While checking my policy status online, I find that the new bonus details are not updated. When are they likely to be updated?


  7. I am Policy Holder Of Jeevan SARAL (Table No.165) With 20 Years Premimum Terms. Please Let Us Know After Completion of Period 20 Year I Am Eligible for taking Benefit of Sum Amount and Bonus

  8. I am getting calls from +919136216020 (Name: Ankitha Mishra, Mr, Guptha), informing that LIC is paying loyalty bonus of Rs. 170616 towards the policies taken by me. and asking for bank account number to transfer the amount. Then it was informed that LIC has invested 70% in HDFC, to withdraw the bonus amount I need to take a insurance policy in HDFC.
    Please advise.

    • No insurance company will ask you to deposit money to pay your bonus and why on earth will an insurance company tell you to take other companies policy to release your bonus. This is nothing but a fraud call. Just avoid any interaction with them at all. You can check your policy status in your nearest branch and can also know your bonus details. Bonus in any policy is paid on the claim (either by maturity or death claim) or on surrender only (discounted value of bonus if the bonus is already vested in your policy).

  9. I can’t understand it. I have LIC money back plan running since 4.5 years, and I just started another LIC plan April this year. Am i entitled for the aforementioned bonus. does any one who has a policy irrespective of its nature eligible for this bonus?? Am I entitled for it as well? Please assist.

    • The reversionary bonus is paid to with profit plans as per the policy conditions. Please check the plan number of your policy to know whether these rates applicable to your policy or not. You can know the bonus details of your policy by visiting any nearest branch or satellite office of LIC. Alternatively you can register your policy of LIC e-Services and can know the bonus details.

  10. Bonus declared by LIC, I believe, is per thousand per year; confirm the same please.
