Your Questions Answered

Will I get the policy benefits if my policy lapses?

No, you will lose the expected insurance benefits if your policy lapses.

Note: In life insurance, the grace period is the specific additional time you get after the premium due date is over to pay the premium and avoid policy lapse.

If I cannot pay the premium after a certain time due to some financial constraints, will I lose the policy?

In the case of regular/limited premium paying policies, if you are unable to pay further premiums after the completion of two policy years, your policy gets converted into paid-up unless revived. In this case, all your benefits will be reduced but the policy remains in force.

I forgot to pay the premium, will I lose the policy?

In case the premium is not paid by the due date, a grace period of 15 days will be given to you for the payment of the due premium for monthly frequency. A 30 days grace period is given for the due premium for quarterly, half-yearly and annual frequencies. You may pay the same during the grace period without any penalty or late fees. The policy continues during this grace period but will nullify post that.
