How To Link Your Aadhaar with LIC Policy Online?

Aadhar was introduced in our country with the basic aim to provide all Indian citizens a unique identification number. It can enable you to gain better access and benefit from different government schemes. The government made it mandatory to link your LIC policy with your Aadhar number, and the deadline for the same has been extended by the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI), until the Supreme Court of India pronounces a judgement on the matter.

I you don’t have aadhar, you can download e aadhar online. The process of linking your LIC policy to your Aadhar card is easy, and you can take a step-by-step approach to upload the correct information, and initiate the linkage.

This doubt may have arisen because of the fact that you can link your Aadhaar and PAN through SMS. However, as of now, there is no facility yet to link Aadhaar to LIC through the SMS facility.

Before you link Aadhar with your LIC Policy, it is important for you to ensure that you’re a registered online LIC user. If you haven’t already registered for availing different online facilities, make sure you register with an organization to link your LIC policy with your Aadhar number. However, even after this, if you are not able to link your Aadhaar to LIC policy online, an alternative would be to link the policy through an offline process.
