    Default Lost my LIC Policy - what is SURETY?

    Hi,

    I have lost my LIC Policy. One of the requirements for a lost insurance policy is SURETY. I was told that the SURETY has to be from a non related person and from the same area of residence where I live. I wanted to know if the SURETY for this can be given by a realted person (for eg my Parents) or does it have to be a non related person and also whether it has to be from a person from the same area of residence as mine.

    Thanks Vijesh

    Please do what ever is asked by the LIC branch.

    Classification of sureties

    a) “SREG” (Salary Recovery Enforceable Group)
    b) “SRNEG (Salary Recovery Non-Enforceable Group)

    Salary Requirement Norms
    a) SREG employees:
    The SREG surety (s)/guarantor(s) offered should have a minimum/combined salary of 10% of the future liability.
    b) SRNEG employees:
    The SRNEG surety(s)/guarantor(s) offered should have a minimum/combined salary of 12.5% of the future liability.
    c) Combination of Sureties/guarantors
    When SREG employee and SRNEG employee are jointly offered as sureties/ guarantors they should have a combined minimum salary of 12.5% of the future liability.

    Surety means that someone is giving surety that you are the same person, who’s LIC policy has been lost. The reason they are asking for a same area person because that guy know you and give guarantee to the LIC, so that they will not face another claim on it later on.
