Policy Loan

Once the policy has acquired a surrender value, one can avail a loan against the policy.

Surrender Value

The policy can only be surrendered if a minimum of 3 years’ due premiums have been paid. LIC may choose to pay the policyholder the Special Surrender Value or the Guaranteed Surrender Value, based on whichever is the higher out of the two.

Paid-Up Value

If the life assured has paid the due premiums for at least 3 years and has missed the subsequent premium payment, the policy will not wholly void, but will be converted into a paid-up policy.

Policy Revival

If due premiums are not paid by the end of the grace period, the policy will lapse. The policyholder can revive a lapsed policy within 2 years from the date of the first due unpaid premium.


*Policyholders who pay their premiums on a yearly/half-yearly mode are entitled to receive a rebate on their total premium.
