What is Aam Aadmi Bima Yojana?

Aam Aadmi Bima Yojana is a government sponsored social security scheme that offers life cover to the sole earning members of families below poverty line as well as rural households with no land. Coverage is provided against permanent total or partial disability as well as accidental and natural death.  The Central and State governments share the annual premium of Rs. 200 per person equally. This saves the insured the money towards payment of the premium.

The AABY scheme was launched in October 2007, primarily to provide financial assistance to the rural poor with little or no access to basic services such as hospitals and pharmacies. This socially inclusive scheme covers those who fall below the poverty line and supports their families in the event of death or disability of the insured.

Features of the AABY Scheme

● Sponsored Premiums:

The premiums of the scheme vary across states in India. However, 50% of the premium amount is subsidised and paid by the government from the Social Security Fund. The remaining amount is paid by the nodal agency, union territory, State Government, or Central Government. This depends on the insured’s occupation. In short, the AABY is a government-funded scheme.

● Easy Enrolment:

The enrolment process for AABY is quick and involves minimal paperwork. The beneficiaries have to provide proof of identification at the time of enrolment.

● Hassle-Free Claim Process:

Along with easy enrolment, raising claims against the scheme is hassle-free as well. The beneficiaries have to provide the AABY card for submitting and settling the claim application.

●  Quick Assistance:

Insured and their beneficiaries can get in touch with the nearest Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) branch for quick assistance.
