On March 19, the LIC had said that policyholders can deposit their Maturity claim documents at their nearest LIC branches anywhere in the country. The decision was taken in view of restriction in movements posed by Covid. However, the actual claim payment will be processed by the servicing branch only. The documents will be digitally transferred through LIC’s All India Network. This means if a policyholder is in one city and the policy document is another city, then the documents can be deposited separately at two different places. The facility is available on a trial basis with immediate effect till March 31, 2021. Also Read - LIC IPO: Now, LIC Insurance Policy Holders Will Have 10% Quota Reserved in the IPO
