Centre approves measures for LIC agents, employees

Earlier in September, the Ministry of Finance approved a series of welfare measures aimed towards the benefit of LIC agents and employees including enhancement of gratuity limit and expansion of term insurance coverance.

Over 13 lakh LIC agents and more than 1 lakh regular employees will benefit from the newly-announced welfare measures, according to an official release. The measures are related to amendments to the LIC (Agents) Regulations, 2017, Enhancement of Gratuity Limit, and Uniform Rate of Family Pension among others.

The Finance Ministry announced that the gratuity limit would be hiked to R5 lakh from Rs 3 lakh for LIC agents, bringing substantial improvements to their working condition and benefits. Reappointed agents are now eligible for renewal commission, which will provide them with increased financial stability.
