Though the government has extended the timeline to link your Aadhaar details with financial services from 31st December 2017 to 31st of March 2018, still it needs to be done. Problems might arise with claim settlements if the insurance policies are not linked by the given deadline. There are a few ways in which you can link your Aadhaar with your insurance policies.
- There are no specific documents required to link your Aadhaar but the policy holder must have their policy number, Aadhaar number and PAN readily available while linking.
- In case the Aadhaar Number not available then the policyholder is required to provide proof of application of enrolment for Aadhaar
- Further, for the KYC requirement, the policyholder is also required to provide their PAN details. In case the PAN not available then certified copy of an officially valid document needs to be submitted.
