If somehow, the information or the submitted documents are found to be at fault, LIC India has to inform the same to the claimant and must investigate and settle the death insurance claim under a time span of 6 months, and where actually, the time of claim settlement is calculated from the date on which the written application for the death claim is made.

I think the process of making an death insurance claim related to traditional or Term insurance plan is quite clear to you by now, Remember, while making a death insurance claim from LIC India or any other Insurance, you must not wait for too long.

All the policyholders must keep the original policy document at the secure place, and the death claim and maturity claim both require one to submit the original copies of the same, and it is very difficult to get the final settlement claim if one has lost the original Life Insurance policy documents.
