LIC of India Lifetime Free Credit Cards

This was posted by Anit Shah on FinTalks Facebook Group on 15th January 2021.

LIC has launched its Credit Cards in collaboration with Axis Bank. All the cards are Lifetime Free.

LIC VISA SIGNATURE CREDIT CARD:

  • 1x Reward Points on all transaction (1rp= Rs 1)
  • 2x Reward Points on LIC Bill payment
  • 2x Reward Points on international spends
  • Complimentary lounge access twice a quarter
  • Accidental Insurance of Rs 5L

LIC VISA PLATINUM CREDIT CARD:

Benefits:

  • 1x Reward Points on all transaction (1rp= Rs 0.75)
  • 2x Reward Points on LIC Bill payment
  • 2x Reward Points on international spends
  • Accidental Insurance of Rs 3L

Other Benefits:

0 card lost liability, free add-on cards, fuel surcharge waiver, etc.

The best benefit is that you get upto 75 days of Grace Period to pay up your LIC dues!

How?

Example: Assume your LIC due date is 28th May. Lic gives extra 30 days as a grace period i.e till 28 June. If u register for auto-debit, the LIC premium will be paid 5 days before the grace period ends from your LIC CC i.e 23 June. Hence your bill generates on 22 July which means u need to pay it back by 11aug, effectively giving you (30-5+30+20) 75 days of time period to pay off your LIC premium. Similarly, you can stretch it to 80 days maximum, by doing it manually.
