How to Avoid Insurance Claim Rejection ?

Life insurance is not just a tax saving tool, it is a serious financial product which if used correctly can be a bless for your family and dependents. We people take life insurance to safe our future from any mishappen.      
How-to-Avoid-Insurance-Claim-Rejection ?
But it will be only if it get paid to our nominee on time without hassle. There are so many clauses, conditions and exceptions in insurance policies. Failure to meet any of these conditions would result in no insurance benefit being pay out. Most often, insurers rely on legal loopholes and clauses in their policy documents to avoid making payments of sums assured, but surprisingly a large number of times, the fault and blame belongs to the customers themselves.
Here are some points to ensure yourself as a customer that you always get paid.
1. Don't Conceal Information:- While taking a life insurance policy any information pertaining to your health/habits which can put an impact should disclose. Any pre-existing disease or condition or smoking/drinking habits or anything that can be linked as being as cause to your hospitalization or death will be investigated and if you have not disclosed to the company about it then sum assured & other benefits will not be given to you or your dependents/nominee. Remember your premiums are decided on this information. If there is nothing that can be held against you then the insurer will have to honor the insurance claim.
2. Accept Medical Examination: After certain age, life insurer ask for sponsored medical examination and test to get better understanding of your medical condition. These test may also help you detect diseases early, and treat them accordingly. These test will decide acceptance/rejection of policy or clear your doubts about any future rejection of claims due to concealing health information. 
3. Pay Insurance Premium On-Time: Remember Insurance company only settle claims on Active Insurance Policies. But there are number of people who do not understand that delaying premium payments result in lapsed policies. Once your policy get lapse, you are no longer covered and all your premiums paid that far will be rendered useless. Your nominee may lost their legal validity to get sum assured on death from the company. In some cases delaying your insurance premium payments lead to Late Payment Surcharge for re-reinstatement of the policy.
4. Nominee Information: Nominee is the person who will receive any and all benefits that come out of your insurance policy in your absence. Nominee should be generally that person whose livelihoods are directly depends on you being alive and well. So nominate some one is more important. If you are single than nominate your parents, if married then spouse or children. Whatever your present relationship status is, always keep nominee name update so that some benefits will to some dependents of yours. If there is no nominee then death benefits may be freeze/rejected.
5. Scrutinize the Policy Documents: Merely telling the insurance agent everything about your medical history will not qualify him to understand and explain all on the form about your medical history. Insurers decide your premium payment amount, overall coverage, and even some exclusions based on whats' filled out in your forms. No one knows better that you, and you need to make sure the insurance provider knows too. You need to take the time out of your busy schedule and check the form that all details are filled in order and truthfully. Check Clauses such as the exception list that indemnifies the insurer from any kind of liability towards you exist all over your policy documents. 

Keep  yourself informed about all developments with your insurer. Keep yourself informed about the details in your policy documents. Stay well informed about the conditions under which you will be eligible for a claim.

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.

How to Surrender an LIC Policy ??

Why we are thinking to surrender the policy while we take it to secure future from financial Problem or Unexpected other risk. Some time we take to save tax U/s.80C also.

REASON TO SURRENDER : 
There may be so many reasons to get it surrender. Might be you are not satisfy with the term & conditions or having some financial problem.
But before going to surrender your policy bond,  you need to check that does your policy has surrender values.

All endowment or money back insurance plans accrue a surrender value after certain (lock-in) period.
Generally insurance policies acquire surrender value completions of three years of your policy. This may varies than the amount of premium paid.
Remember Term Insurance / Health Insurance policies are pure protection plans and do not accrue any surrender value.
Once you have decided to surrender your policy, here is how you go.

REQUIRED DOCUMENTS : -
I.   Original Policy Bond / Certificate
II.  Photocopy of last premium payment receipts
III. Photocopy of latest unit balance (in-case of market linked plan)
IV.  Application for surrender value or LIC SurrenderRequest Letter
VII. One Cancelled Cheques / Photocopy of Passbook (NEFT/RTGS Purposes)

All forms are self explanatory, fill all the forms accordingly and have some revenue stamps may require. With the above documents visit your home /servicing branch (office from where policy bond is issued). You can find it on your policy bond or on policy receipts. Only Policy holders can surrender the Policy Bond.
After verification all documents LIC officer will issue an Acknowledgement Receipts for the same. Surrendered process may take 15-20 days and the amount (Surrender Value) will be credited into your bank account directly.

POINTS TO REMEMBER : -
1. Surrender values are payable only after three full annual premium paid.
2. Surrender of policy is not recommended since the surrender value would always be proportionately low.
3. And When you decide again to go for an LIC Policy that would be with higher premium because of your    
    higher age .
