You may be aware that LIC started issuing maturity or survival benefits directly to your bank accounts rather than issuing the cheque. Going one step ahead, LIC recently launched the facility to register LIC NEFT Mandate online to receive your maturity or survival benefits directly to your bank account.
From 2012, LIC has made it mandatory for all the policyholders to submit the NEFT Mandate form to receive any type of payments from the insurer like survival or maturity benefits.
However, this submission of the NEFT Mandate form was offline only. But avoiding the hassles of visiting the branch and especially during this Covid 19 period, LIC launched the facility to register LIC NEFT Mandate online to receive maturity benefits or survival benefits.
If you are a LIC policyholder and not yet registered your NEFT mandate with LIC, you can now submit the form online.
How to register LIC NEFT Mandate online to receive maturity benefits?
Let us see the procedure to register LIC NEFT Mandate online to receive maturity benefits.
The primary eligibility to register LIC NEFT Mandate online is that you should have login credentials to access the customer portal of LIC.
# Visit the ‘customer portal‘ of LIC. If not registered, then create a login by clicking on “New User”. However, if you have already created the login, then directly click on the tab “Registered User”.
# Once you login to the customer portal, you will now be prompted with the message “Online NEFT Registration facility is now available to Customer Portal users. To avail the facility, click here.”. Click on that link.
