How to Claim LIC Term insurance?

To claim death benefits, you will need to fulfil certain formalities. They are:

  • Process

To claim the death benefits you will have to collect the documents required and submit them at the LIC office. Once the documents are received and the claim verified, the policy being in effect and the claimant being the beneficiary, LIC will process the claim and release the sum assured.

  • Documents Required

You will need 3 key documents to make a claim for the death benefits of any policy. The original policy document. The death certificate of the policyholder. The claim form, also known as Claim Form A or Form No.3783. An NEFT mandate that will allow LIC to transfer the amount to your account.


Every insurance policy, including term insurance policies, has certain conditions under which claims will not be entertained. These conditions are known as exclusions. The main exclusion that applies to the policies issued by LIC relates to suicide committed by the policyholder. In such a case, if the policy is less than 12 months old then LIC will not pay anything to the beneficiary. If it is more than 12 months old then they will pay 80% of the premiums paid to the beneficiary and not entertain any claims for the sum assured.
