Jun 20, 2018 | 1 year ago | Read Time: 2 minutes | By iKnowledge Team

Aadhaar is an integral part of the Know-Your-Customer (KYC) process for various financial documents, including your insurance policies. The linking can be done through the online and offline mode. Here’s how it can be done in each mode:

Online mode

This mode of verification is the easiest and the fastest for linking Aadhaar. Firstly, you must check whether your Aadhaar is linked to your mobile number. The second step is to check whether your personal details on an insurance policy, Permanent Account Number (PAN) and Aadhaar; like name, date of birth, and address match.

Once confirmed, you need to visit your insurance company’s website and find Aadhaar linking page. Enter your personal, insurance policy, PAN, and Aadhaar details. You will receive a One-Time Password (OTP) on your Aadhaar registered mobile number. Enter the OTP to complete the linking process. You will get a confirmation message on your mobile number on the status of the linking in a few days.

Offline mode

In the offline mode, you can contact the nearest branch of the insurance company or your insurance agent. Fill the form by entering all the details including Aadhaar and PAN. Attach the photocopy of the Aadhaar and PAN along with the form. As this process is offline, you may not receive an immediate status on your email or mobile number. You will need to contact the company branch or insurance agent to know the status of the linking process.

Aadhaar Linking Deadline

As per Supreme Court ruling, insurance companies have been asked to extend the Aadhaar linking deadline indefinitely. Those who are willing to link their insurance policies with Aadhaar can still go to insurance websites and can do so. It is believed that the linking process will hasten claim processing and benefit policyholders in the long run.

To sum up

Follow any of the easy modes — online and offline — based on your convenience. Link your Aadhaar to receive quick policy benefits.
