LIC Policy premium ECS deducted on a different date than due date

If you have activated ECS  or direct debit on your lic policy, the amount for your policy premium will be deducted a different date from your policy due date in most of the cases. If the due date of your policy falls between 1st and 7th of any calendar month, your account will be debited on 8th of the month. If your policy due date falls between 8th and 15th of the month, account will be debited on 15th of the same month. If you policy due date falls on 16th or later, your account will be debited on the 28th of the month.

What to do with my lapsed LIC policy

If you have not paid your policy premium within the due date of your policy, you will have a grace period to pay your policy premium. Before the grace period of your policy ends, you shall pay your premium with some late fees. The late fee differs based on each policy, but in general, it should be 0.8% of the unpaid premium per month. But if you have missed even your grace period without paying the premium, your policy would lapse, which mean that your life insurance cover cease to exist. If your policy had lapsed, you shall revive your policy so that your policy will come into force again and you will have the insurance cover again. To revive your lapsed policy, you shall contact your Agent or advisor. You shall also download the attached revival form sourced from LIC's official site http://licindia.in/download_forms.htm . If you had taken the policy initially without a medical test, in most of the cases, you may not be required to take a test now. You have to fill the attached form and submit it to the LIC Home Branch office (where your policy was taken) along with the pending amount with the late fee as cash / cheque.

What happens if i stop paying my LIC policy Premium

As a customer or insurance policy holder, we would have bought a LIC policy some years back because either one of our friends was an LIC Agent and he has recommended us to buy an LIC policy or some tax has been deducted by our employer as TDS from our monthly salary or there might be some other reasons behind your policy purchase. Whatever may be the case, at some point of time, we might not have had enough money to pay our policy premium. If you had stopped paying your LIC policy premium, your policy will be lapsed with the end of the grace period. The grace period is the time provided by your insurer after the premium due date, to pay your pending premium with a late fee and the insurance coverage continues. With the end of this grace period, your insurance life cover ceases. If your policy gets lapsed due to non payment of premium, you have the option of reviving your policy again by paying the pending dues and providing medical reports as required or else you may choose you surrender your policy and withdraw the surrender value from your policy.
