What is nomination of the policy?

Section 39 of the Indian Insurance Act 1938 provides for nomination of a person who would receive the benefits of the claim on the death of the life assured. Nomination establishes a clear title to the policy. This prevents dispute and also prevents delay in settlement of a death claim. In the case where nomination has not been given at the time of proposal, nomination can be made at any time during the term of the policy. Nomination can also be changed, at any time during the tenure of the policy, by intimating respective insurance company

Can I change my nomination?

Nomination is a right conferred on the holder of a Policy of Life Assurance on his own life to appoint a person/s to receive policy moneys in the event of the policy becoming a claim by the assureds death. The Nominee does not get any other benefit except to receive the policy moneys on the death of the Life Assured.

What if I forget to make payment?
