How to revive your lapsed LIC policy? (online and offline method)

It is extremely important for a policyholder to make timely premium payments towards his or her insurance policy. If the due premium is not paid, the policy stands to be lapsed, and the coverage and protection extended by the insurance policy stands to be terminated.

Generally, insurance companies provide a 15-day grace period from the due date for policyholders to make premium payments. If the policyholder pays his premium within the grace period, the policy will not be terminated, but if the policyholder fails to make a payment even within the grace period, the insurance policy will be terminated.

There are rare instances where you may have missed paying your LIC policy premium even during the grace period. This will lead to your LIC policy getting lapsed. The question is, can you revive your lapsed LIC policy? The answer is “Yes,” your lapsed LIC policy can be revived.

We will talk about the various ways on how your policy can be revived. Stay tuned.
