In a life insurance policy with maturity benefits, the insured will be entitled to claim maturity benefits if he or she outlives the term of the policy. The insured is entitled to claim the maturity benefits only when the policy is in force and all premiums have been paid duly. A maturity claim is one of the simplest claim procedures with minimal paperwork involved.
Insurance Policy discharge form
Typically, the Insurance company sends a Policy Discharge Form about one month before the maturity date of the insurance policy. The letter also provides instructions regarding the documents that need to accompany the form.
Details and Policies Claiming documents
The policy discharge form must be duly filled by the policyholder. The form needs to be signed by the policyholder as well as two witnesses. Along with the form, the following documents need to be enclosed with the application: Original policy document Copy of identity proof Copy of address proof Bank mandate form with bank details A cancelled cheque leaf The duly completed form with required documents must reach the insurance company at least 5-7 working days before the maturity date of the policy for a seamless maturity claim settlement.
Insurance Claiming Process
Once the documents are sent to the insurance company, upon verification, the insurance company will process the maturity claim and make the payment to the policyholder. The maturity proceeds will be credited directly to the bank account of the policyholder after the policy maturity date.
This procedure is applicable only to those policies that have maturity bene fits such as survival benefit, bonus etc.
