In my earlier post “Conditions for Club membership for FY 2015-16 for LIC agents” I mentioned about the escalation clause and commission required to qualify for the particular club for the financial year 2015-16 for new as well as continuing club members. The escalation clause is a yearly increase in commission by 5% compared to last year, and it was effective from 2013-14 for new entrants and 2014-15 for continuing club members. But as per the new circular of LIC Mkt/A/21(R) dated 01/07/2015  dated 06/06/2016 escalation clause has been reviewed.

Club Galaxy for LIC agents: All you need to know

LIC, LIC Agents, Life Insurance

Club membership for agents is one of the ways Life Insurance Corporation of India rewards its agent for higher and consistent performance. Until May 2014 the highest club was the corporate club and after that Chairman Club was there. There is a huge difference between the eligibility criteria of the corporate club and Chairman Club. In May 2014, LIC of India introduced a new club between the corporate club and Chairman Club named, Club Galaxy.  One of the reasons behind the introduction of Club Galaxy was to motivate the agent to qualify for MDRT (Million Dollar Round Table) and therefore eligibility criteria of Club Galaxy are synced with qualifying conditions of MDRT.  Let me share some important point and conditions of Club Galaxy here:

Membership Year for Club Galaxy

The year in which agent become a member of the club is known as Membership year. For Club Galaxy, membership year is 1st September to 31st August like other clubs. The financial year after which an agent becomes the member of a particular club is known as the qualifying year. Therefore, the first qualifying year was 1st April 2014 to 31st March 2015 and first membership year for Club Galaxy is 1st September 2015 to 31st August 2016.
