Good News: Now You can apply for Loan against LIC Policy online. Earlier we used to apply for loan offline by contacting the agent for understanding eligibility and details and paying a visit to your branch.
Now LIC has simplified the online process by making these methods easy and online, under which you can fill your loan application online. Not only loan, you can also pay Loan Repayment/ Loan Interest Payment online.
Before giving more information about this, let me tell you about loan features given on LIC policy.
Features of Loan Received under LIC Policy
- The amount of loan you can get is up to 90% of the surrender value.
- All types of LIC policies are not liable for the loan as (Term Life Insurance), it is very important for you to check your loan eligibility.
- You need to pay interest every half year.
- Loan would be given for minimum 6 months period.
- You can repay the loan principal with interest or just if you want to pay interest. If you want to pay only the interest on the loan, then the principal amount of the loan is reduced by the amount of your claim.
- To take the loan on LIC policy, you have to complete at least 3 years of the premium paying term. which means you can only get loan on 3 years + old policies.
- You will have to keep LIC’s policy as a security. LIC keeps all your original documents under their custody.
- If you fail to deposit the interest within 30 days from the last day of payment, then LIC forcibly closes your policy and recovers the loan amount.
- You can also take a second loan on your same LIC policy, whether your past interest is fully deposited or not. However, the amount given to you will be equal to ninety percent of the surrender value by adding two amounts.
- You can take the loan from other banks also on LIC policy but it will not be beneficial for you and other banks can charge you more interest.
Loan Against LIC Policy Online application process
As I told you earlier, LIC has now made the online process for all its loans and its payment.
The way to apply for the loan and pay online applications is like this.
- You have to go to the LIC’s home page and press the online loan button which is present in the online services tab or you can click here to go directly at : https://www.licindia.in/home/policyloanoptions
- As soon as you click on the online loan, you are redirected to another page. Two types of options are available on that new page, for an instalment payment and for applying for a new loan.
- There you have to register yourself, in which you are given your login ID. If you already registered just login.
- At the end, you will be able to register yourself after filling up all the types of options given to you to register yourself.
Benefits of taking a loan against LIC policy.
- The first thing is that you get a loan immediately in the time of your emergency on LIC policy.
- Now as I said that the process has become online, applying it has become very easy.
- Interest rates under this are less compared to other personal loans.
- Lots of flexibility has been given to repay the loan, which is not given in the other personal loan.
- Here you only have to give your policy document as proof, if you are taking personal loans from any other place, then you have to go through many eligibility processes.
The disadvantage of taking the loan against LIC policy.
- The amount of money you get as a loan is very limited as your surrender value will be. If you want more money than you cannot get that much loan amount on the LIC policy.
- You do not get any tax benefits.
- In the event of your tragic death, the values of your insurance are greatly reduced. Because the loan is still outstanding and the amount that your nominee receives benefits is reduced.
As far as LIC’s traditional plans do not have much advantage as the increment of money is not as much. But yes, it can be beneficial in the emergency for anyone who needs a loan urgently and it can also be helpful for those who need a personal loan.

What is ULIP Insurance? How it works?
ULIP is a part linked with insurance plan. In other words ULIP is an Insurance + Investment plan. ULIPs fall in the category where they are more goal oriented and give priority towards the safety of insurance protection. This plan enables you to secure protection for your family in the event of your untimely death and at the same time provides you an opportunity to earn a return on your premium paid. In this type of investment a part of the investment is used for providing you life cover. As this insurance is combined is somewhere linked with investment, therefore the funds which are saved in turn are used in stocks or bonds, hence the value of the investment keep varying as per the investment chosen by you. In Simple words, ULIPs are structured in such a form that they can be managed according to the specific needs of the consumers and the protection received is an added benefit. In this way the ULIPs offer flexibility to their customers.
There are certain important points to be taken into consideration before we opt for ULIP plans.
- Firstly, we should be aware about all the charges ie. allocation charges, mortality charges etc.
- Secondly, person can get a tax rebate of a maximum of Rs 100000 when invested in ULIP plans.
- Third point is what are the locking period and other fine prints like surrender charges before the maturity.
As now we know what exactly is an ULIP plan, now the next question normally pops out in our minds is how does this plan works out? No plan is easy to understand, so in the same way even it is critical to know the working of ULIP plan and how our money gets invested. ULIPs basically work like a mutual fund with a life cover involved in it. The premium is invested by them in the investments like mutual funds, bonds, stock markets. When the amount of the premium is decided the insurer firstly deducts some portion of the ULIP premium and then the rest of the premium is invested in the funds. The next step involves deduction of the mortality charges by the administration. The charges are deducted as per the type chosen by us. It may be on monthly basis or sometimes daily basis. As the fund invested by us in the ULIP plan as an underlying value, the fund value provides us the value of the asset. And as the plan gets matured, we are entitled to receive the amount of out fund as per its face value.
The points must be considered and the proper knowledge of the ULIP plan is a must. If all these factors are viewed, this policy is very beneficial in the future.
