There are times when we might misplace or lose important insurance documents. It is important to stay calm and search for these documents with a clear head. However, if the document is still not found there are ways to attain a duplicate copy.
An original policy bond will be needed at many junctures, including when you want to claim the sum assured.
Let us talk about what you can do in case you misplace your original LIC policy bond, and how you can get a duplicate policy bond.
First, you will need to publish an advertisement in a well-circulated newspaper of your choice. Once you have published this advert, you will have to wait for a month and submit a cutting of the advert to your nearest LIC office.
Next, you will have to submit an indemnity bond to LIC. Ensure that you have a word with the designated LIC officer about the contents within the indemnity bond, the kind of stamp paper required, the number of witnesses required, etc. If possible, show a rough draft to the officer first, once he clears this draft, then you can proceed with making the actual indemnity bond.
Once the indemnity bond is filled, you will be given a form (form 3756) that is required to be filled by the policyholder. The form will ask you for the following important details:
Fill in all the details within form 3756 clearly and concisely, and ensure that there is no falsification within the form. Once the form is filled, you will be required to attach the following documents:
Once all of these details and documents are furnished to LIC, they will verify the documents, do a background check, and then proceed with the issuance of a duplicate policy bond to the policyholder.
