How to Link Aadhaar with LIC Policy

Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) of India is the largest and the oldest insurance company in India, emphasizing its status of being the pioneer of insurance products in the country. It is renowned for its wide range of insurance plans under different schemes like money back plans, term insurance plans, endowment plans, whole life plans, pension plans, rider plans and term assurance plans. Each scheme under these plans is designed to fulfil unique financial needs.

The Government of India had been debating whether linking LIC policy with Aadhaar card should be made compulsory for policyholders or not. This initiative would help them to continue to reap the benefits of the life insurance plan, as and when the need arises. If this provision is implemented and made compulsory by the government, all insurance policies that have not been linked to Aadhaar will cease to exist. However, the last date set for linking LIC policy with Aadhaar card has been postponed till further notice. This announcement was made by the 5-judge bench of the Supreme Court of India in its ruling in March 2018, led by the Chief Justice of India. Therefore, as per December 2018, it is not mandatory for insurance policies to link LIC policy with Aadhaar number, though they can exercise the facility as per their discretion.
