Hassle free Claims
Claimant needs to call the Tata AIA Life Call Centre and get the claim settled through the claim process

On the occasion of the formal launch of m-Insurance, Mr. T. S. Vijayan, Chairman IRDAI, said, “I am here to attend the event because this initiative is core to the mission of IRDAI, which is not just regulation but development too. Life insurance is all about protection and that incorporates three things - offering protection at an affordable price, reaching out to maximum number of people, and offering simple claim settlement. A plan like m-Insurance uses technology to cut distribution and service costs, thereby bringing protection to those who would otherwise find it unaffordable. With plans like these, we feel we have done something really valuable for the country”, he added.

Indian citizens between 18-80 years of age can avail this unique offer which is paperless and does not require any medical tests. Customers are auto-enrolled on purchase of Tata DoCoMo’s selected mobile recharge coupon (Special Tariff Voucher-STV). Life cover comes with two sum assured options – INR 50,000 and INR 1,00,000.

Life insurance cover will continue till the validity / renewal of the recharge STV.

Mr. Ishaat Hussain, chairman Tata AIA Life, ,spoke about the Insurance sector and its role. “Insurance in our country is under-penetrated largely because it is not explained very well and therefore not understood very well. In early 2000, when we were putting our insurance and telecom plans together, a big thrust was on serving the bottom of the pyramid as well. 80% of our population that is buying pre-paid services belongs to that section of the pyramid. The m-Insurance product brought about by the Tata AIA and Tata DoCoMo partnership is in alignment with the IRDAI and GOI objective of reaching out to that very section of society. M-Insurance helps us in our aim to spread the protection cover as far and wide as possible”.

Commenting on the launch, H. Venkatachalam, Chief - Partnership Distribution & Corporate Solutions.of Tata AIA Life said, “We are proud to launch m-Insurance, a novel initiative in the insurance sector that offers a simple, easy to get and transparent plan. Tata AIA’s intent is to be a vehicle of change in empowering the society with relevant products and services that protect as well as build wealth in the long run. Together with TTSL we will bring a large number of people in India under the blanket of financial security. The product has been well received in the pilot stage with over 23,000 lives secured in a short span.”

“The bundled life insurance cover is a step towards our commitment to offer added benefits to our customers along with our regular telecom products and services. Being a customer-centric company, we will continue to bring such services to enhance value for our customers. We are confident that this offer will be well received,” said Mr. Sunil Tandon, President-Regulatory & Corporate Affairs, Tata Teleservices Ltd.

Post the purchase of selected STV, customer is informed of the policy & cover details by a SMS, immediately followed by another text message encouraging the customer to share nominee details. Customers will also receive regular reminders to renew STV so as to keep the insurance cover valid. The claims process would require minimal documents and will be managed by Tata AIA Life centrally from their HO in Mumbai.

Tata AIA Life announces 'Revive' to give customers opportunity to reinstate lapsed insurance policies

Mumbai, October, 2016: Tata AIA Life Insurance today announced the launch of ‘Revive’, an initiative to reinstate lapsed insurance policies. As part of the scheme, customers will be given waivers on health certificate and interest for selected lapsed policies (subject to underwriting exclusions and other terms and conditions of the policy). The offer will be valid till November 30, 2016.

Often, for a number of reasons, policy holders cannot pay their premiums even after the grace period. The inevitable happens and the insurance policy gets lapsed. Once lapsed, the policy will not provide any benefit or coverage to the consumers, exposing them and their loved ones to financial risks. This is an undesirable scenario dreaded by most policy holders. Tata AIA understands the inconvenience the lapse can cause customers, since sometimes they may fail to pay the premium due to unavoidable circumstances.

In order to protect their customers, Tata AIA Life, through the Revive initiative, will reinstate lapsed policies with premium due from January 1, 2012 with the subject to terms and conditions of the offer. As a mark of its commitment towards its loyal customers, the company has extended the offer even to those policy holders who have not paid their premium after 4th policy year.

Commenting on the Revive campaign, Amitabh Verma, Chief Operating Officer, Tata AIA Life said, "Revival of life insurance policy is like extending a helping hand for policyholders to safeguard their families financially along with the benefit of no additional premium cost. It is an opportunity for all those who were unable to pay their premium on the due date. The initiative is a part of our endeavours to reduce the protection gap in the country and simplifying processes for better customer experience."

Tata AIA Life has introduced a host of initiatives to improve the customer experience. These initiatives include introduction of a service charter where the customers are promised pre-defined timelines to address proposal processing, service request, pay-out process, claim processing and grievance redressal. Addressing grievances, an important step in enhancing customer experience, also provides valuable consumer insights, which can be used to boost customer satisfaction. Keeping this in mind, the company has devised a robust escalation matrix to help the customers manage their policies and connect with senior management of the company effectively in the time of major grievances.

The initiatives taken by Tata AIA Life in the area of claim settlement have translated into promising results. The organisation has registered an individual claim settlement ratio of 96.8 percent for FY15-16, which is one of the best in the private life insurance sector in India. This is an improvement from the previous year’s 94.5 percent. The Company has also gone the extra mile to ensure that all the claims received were decided by the end of the financial year, leaving no instance of an outstanding claim.

This initiative, valid till March 31, 2015 is extended to select customers whose premium due date is between April 2012 to January 2015 (subject to terms and conditions). The customers do not require to submit any health declaration certificate for reinstatement

Commenting on the Revive Campaign, Amitabh Verma, Chief Operating Officer, Tata AIA Life said, "Revive is a part of our ongoing endeavour to make good happen to our customers.

Revive will provide an opportunity to our customers to renew their life insurance policy with the additional benefit of 100% interest and health certificate waiver during this period."

Tata AIA Life has been taking several initiatives to ensure that the customers are able to pay the premium with convenience, thereby, ensuring their Protection cover is continued.

The customers are invited to visit their nearest Tata AIA Life branch on a pre-defined date every month by way of SMS and emails. The focus of this engagement activity is to update the customers about various services that help them in managing their policies effectively along with new services launched. In Kolkata, the customer service camp will be organised in the 2nd week of March.
