The country's largest life insurer, Life Insurance Corporation of India, has appointed nodal officers in cyclone-devastated Andhra Pradesh and Odisha for stepping up its services in the region, including expediting settlement claims.
LIC has eased the procedure for settlement of claims on the lives of the victims of cyclone Hudhud in Andhra Pradesh and Odisha, the company said in a statement.
These concessions and relaxations are in the nature of simplified procedure for death and disability claim settlement, loss of policy document and claim settlement on the lives of missing persons, it said.
LIC has appointed Nodal Officers in the affected states for coordinating and expediting settlement claims, it said.
