How to get a loan on your LIC policy (other than term insurance policies)
Life Insurance is a long term contract. The life assured keeps paying premium regularly for a long time. Some time, the insured person may have some urgent financial requirements.
In such situations, the insured person shall approach the insurer and request for a loan mortgaging his life insurance policy document. A simple loan application needs to be filled, signed and witnessed by any agent of the corporation. The maximum loan will be up to 90% of the surrender value of the policy.
It is advisable to take a policy loan only if you can pay at least the interest once in 6 months. Otherwise, even if you continue to pay your premium, you may not get much on maturity. The difference in the rate of return on your life insurance and the interest on your loan will eat away the savings in your life insurance policy. Take care of your life insurance policy.
