A life insurance policy is one of the most important covers you require to secure the financial well-being of your loved ones. The policy pays death or maturity benefits to your nominees when a claim is approved by the insurance company. There are many documents required for insurance, and Aadhar and PAN are among the most important ones.

Is it mandatory to link Aadhar and PAN to life insurance?

The Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDAI) has made it mandatory for all policyholders to link the insurance plan with their Aadhar and PAN. According to the Prevention of Money-laundering (Maintenance of Records) Second Amendment Rules, 2017, linking the Aadhar and PAN is essential to avail of financial services.
