What is non-disclosure and how would it affect during claim stage?

At the claims stage if it is detected/found that the statements made at the time of application/reinstatement the policy were false, the claim may be rejected.

To whom will the death claim be paid?

The death benefit is paid to:

  • The legal heirs, in case the policyholder has not specified the nominee
  • The appointee named by the policyholder when the nominee is a minor at the time of claim

Why is a claim rejected or declined?

If at the time of claim it is established that there had been a material suppression or misstatement of facts pertaining to the information in Application / Revival form, which would have impacted our decision to issue / revive the policy, then it may lead to rejection of the claim.

What are the IRDA regulations pertaining to Claims?

The IRDA (Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority) guidelines state that a claim will have to be paid within 30 days from the date of receipt of all claim documents. In case the claim warrants an investigation, then the insurance company has to complete the investigation not later than 6 months from the time of making the claim. Moreover, if a claim is ready for payment but the payment cannot be made because of conflicts or insufficiency of proof of title, then the insurer may apply to pay the amount into the Court, or, such an amount will earn interest at the prevalent rate applicable to a savings bank account.
