Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi launched three new social security schemes under his government’s Jan Suraksha initiative during his visit to Kolkata on May 9. As most of us know by now, these schemes are – Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana (PMJJBY), Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana (PMSBY) and Atal Pension Yojana (APY).
People are keen to know more about these schemes and how to get themselves enrolled/subscribed to get insurance coverage in case of death or disability. Though banks are also aggressive & keen in attracting their customers to subscribe to these schemes, many people are still clueless how to get themselves enrolled and whether banks are providing online subscription facility or not.
Customers of banks, like Kotak Mahindra Bank, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, IndusInd Bank and SBI, can subscribe to PMJJBY and PMSBY in any of the following manners:
* Visiting a bank branch nearest to your place, filling the Consent-cum Declaration Form & depositing in the branch itself
* Through Netbanking by filling the online form
* Sending an SMS to the number provided by your bank
I have tried to compile a list of participating banks which have tied up with different insurance companies for providing life insurance and accidental death & disability insurance to their interested customers. Here you have the list of banks along with their partner insurance companies and whether they are providing the online and/or SMS facility to their customers or not:
