What is Claim in Insurance?
Let’s talk about claim. Claim is the demand that the insurer (i.e. LIC of India) should redeem the promise made in the contract. Then the insurer settle the claim after satisfying himself that all the conditions and requirements for settlement of claim have been complied with.
Types of claims:-
An insured person can make claim according to condition complied to contract between Insurer & Policyholder. Claim can be made against Maturity; Death or by Surrendering a policy.
In Money Back Policy, LIC or other Insurance company also pays Survival Benefit Payment before the date of maturity.
How to Make Claims and what are the documents required for?
(A)Maturity Claims:-
When Life Insurance Policy is maturing, the insurance company will usually send intimation prior to due date at least two to three months in advance of the date of maturity with maturity amount payable details.
Policy holder should contact his servicing branch to know about claim procedures & sets of documents required. The Insurance Company asks for following documents:
(          1)Maturity Claim Form No. 3825
(          2)Original Policy Bond
(          3)Discharge Voucher with witness sign
(          4)NEFT Details with cancelled Cheques
(B)Death Claims :-
When a person with life insurance policy dies, claim intimation should be sent to the insurance company as early as possible. The Assignee or the Nominee under the policy can do this with the help of his agent or relative.
The claim intimation should contain information like Date, Place and Cause of Death. The Insurance Agent should help the Insured Person Family or Assignee to deal with the Insurance Company. The Insurance company will respond and ask for the following document :
(       1)Maturity Claim Form No. 3825

*If the policy has been assigned in favour of any other person or entity like any Loan provider company – the claim amount will be paid to the assignee who will give discharge.
