Alterations to Policy

After the policy is purchased, there may be discrepancies that you wish to correct. These discrepancies can be called alterations.
After purchase, any policyholder can request modifications to LIC policies. Insurance companies often have guidelines that you must follow.
The policyholder might decide that a policy is not suitable for him/her due to multiple reasons. In these cases, he/she may want to modify or alter the policy. LIC covers many types of policy alterations. However, any request for modification made within the first year after the purchase of the policy is not accepted.


Types of Alterations under the LIC Policy
• Modification in class
• Modification in term
• Reduce the amount of the sum assured
• Modification of the premium payment method
• Addition of premium
• Change from a plan without profit to a plan with a profit
• Modification of the name of the policyholder
• Corrections in the holding policies
• Option to settle sum assured by installments
• Accident benefits grant
• Premium waiver benefit
• Change of currency and payment place

What documents are required for policy modification?
In the event of a policy change, you may need to provide supporting documentation:
• Let us know why you feel the policy needs to be changed.
• Receipt and quotation fee
• The original copy of the LIC policy document -
• Declaration of Health (only when requested)


What are some other policy alteration conditions?
To get a better idea of the scope of LIC policy alterations, you can also look at the following:

• In the event of a policy being lost: LIC Servicing Branch: If a policy is lost because of natural causes such as fire, flood, etc. or if it is not traceable due to unknown reasons, the policyholder must contact LIC to request a duplicate. A duplicate policy can usually be obtained in a matter of minutes.
Changes in residential address: LIC must be notified if the policyholder moves to a new city or a new home. This ensures that the policyholder is aware of any LIC services that may be available at that time. The policyholder might not receive important information such as premium notices or survival benefits on time. LIC usually offers services to change existing addresses, contact information, and email ID.
If you have to change your age: The premium amount is determined by one's age. It is important to verify your age before purchasing a policy. If there is a discrepancy after purchase, you can send an attested copy to LIC officials.
Nominees may be included or altered: Nominations are an integral part of the life insurance sector. It is therefore important to include one in an LIC policy. The policyholder can update the section on the nominee at any time during its life. If the policyholder has not yet included any nominees, it is recommended that they do so as soon as possible.

LIC charges a quotation fee, which is a fee that is charged for altering a policy. The procedure is carried out without additional fees.
