How to make a claim in Aviva’s life insurance plans?

When it comes to claims, there are three instances when a claim arises. These are as follows –

  • Maturity claim – this claim arises when the term of the plan comes to an end
  • Death claim – this claim arises when the insured dies during the term of the plan
  • Health claim – this claim arises when the insured suffers from a covered medical contingency during the term of the plan

The process of initiating each of these claims is as follows –

  • Maturity Insurance Claim

    In case of a maturity claim, the insurance company usually starts the proceedings to pay the claim when the plan matures. This is because of the fact that the company knows about the approaching maturity date and gets ready to pay the claim. The company, therefore, sends the policyholder an advance intimation of maturity and the Maturity Payout Form. The form can also be downloaded from the company’s website. This form should be filled and submitted by the policyholder at any of the nearest branch of the company. Alternatively, the form can also be mailed to the company’s head office in Gurgaon. Once the company receives the Maturity Payout Form, the company settles the maturity benefit by crediting the bank account of the policyholder or by issuing a cheque in the name of the policyholder.

  • Death Insurance Claim

    To avail a death claim, the process is more detailed. It is as follows –

    • The nominee should intimate the company about the death claim. Intimation can be done online, by sending an email to the company, by calling the toll-free helpline of the company which is 1800 103 7766, by visiting the nearest branch of the company or by writing a letter to the company’s office at Gurgaon.
    • Once the company is intimated of the death of the insured, the company assigns a Claim Personal Manager. The details of the manager are sent to the nominee through SMS, letter or phone call.
    • The manager would then guide the nominee about the claim process which should be followed for getting the settlement of the claim.

    A list of documents would be required to be submitted for the processing of death claim. These documents include the following –

    • Death claim Handout
    • Employer questionnaire if the insured was salaried
    • Death certificate
    • Policy document, in original
    • Identity proof and address proof of the nominee or claimant
    • Copy of the cancelled cheque of the claimant so that the death claim can be credited to the claimant’s account
    • In case of death due to any illness, medical attendant’s report, Discharge summary of death summary from the hospital and any other medical reports would have to be submitted
    • In case of death due to accident, police FIR, police investigation report, post mortem report, any available newspaper cutting and any other documents as required by the company would have to be submitted
  • Health Insurance Claim

    In case of a health claim, the company would have to be informed about the claim. The claim form should be filled and submitted by the policyholder. The medical reports of the insured as well as any investigative reports would also have to be submitted. Once the company gets all the relevant documents, the claim would be verified and then settled.

You can follow the above-mentioned steps to get the relevant claims settled through the company. Alternatively, you can also get your claims settled through Turtlemint.
