Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) is the largest insurance and investment corporation in India with a total of 290 million policyholders as of 2019. If you are a LIC policyholder, you are required to pay its premium on a monthly, quarterly, bi-yearly, or annual basis as usual.

Depending upon what policy you have bought, you will get health and life coverage, etc. Circling back to policy payments, LIC has made it quite easy to make the payments since you can do it via net banking, UPI apps like Google Pay and PayTM, credit cards, and more. Let’s have a look at all the ways you can use to pay the premium payments online.

How To Pay LIC Premium Payment Online Using UPI apps

This is undoubtedly the easiest way in India to pay LIC premium payments. As more smartphone users are getting their UPI addresses, it makes it pretty easy to pay the dues within a few taps. Let’s see the procedure for three major UPI apps available in India. Note that other UPI apps will have similar procedures assuming that they have LIC policy premium payment options available.

Step 6: When you find it, tap on it and hit the “Proceed to Pay” option.
Step 7: Select the bank as instructed, enter the UPI ID and you should be able to make the payments.
