      Can I submit the existence certificate thru online especially in the current situation of COVID 19? If so, please provide the email address of the concerned officer of LIC.

      1. Hi Dipak,

        No. LIC agent cannot certify the life certificate. The development officer or CLIA with whom he works can do it. Ask your LIC agent and he will help you get the certification done.


    3. Hello, It would be helpful to senior citizens like my Dad to submit online in the current situation of increasing COVID cases. Please consider it, as they are the vulnerable genre to get infected quickly if they have to go out.
