LIC payments directly to your bank account

Life Insurance Corporation of India will send all payments including Survival Benefit, Maturity, Loan, Surrenders, and payments of Pension & Group Schemes etc., directly to your bank account.  This is for ensuring speedy deposit of money to your bank account and also as per the transparency drive of the Government of India.

This facility will start immediately from 01st October, 2011. All insurance policy holders and beneficiaries of LIC are requested to submit their Bank account details by filling e-payment mandate form to any of the servicing LIC office which holds at least one of your policies listed in the e-payment mandate.

Individual policy holders should submit e-payment NEFT (National Electronic Funds Transfer) Mandate and P&GS (Pension & Group Schemes) Master policy holders. Beneficiaries, annuitants etc. should submit P&GS Mandate.

The form is very simple to fill which asks

Policy numbers (You can fill all your LIC policies in one format)

If there is any further change in any of the details submitted, you should submit the format again with the changed details. If you are receiving annuity payment through ECS mode you can opt to continue ECS mode or NEFT transfer.
