An Overview on IBPS LIC Recruitment Exam:

LIC needs no introduction, a well-known brand name for the majority of us, is the biggest insurance company in India. Constituted by an Act of Parliament 60 years ago, Life Insurance Corporation of India presently operates from more than 3000 offices, and the managed assets under the company already crossed a whopping 16 lakh crores.

LIC is also one of the greatest employers in India; as of 2015, the company has a reported employee strength close to 1Lakh, and, at least, 10 Lakh agents.

The officers and regular employees in LIC of India are chosen through an Online Entrance Test that is now managed by IBPS.

Advantages of a career at LIC:

  • The duty of the is generally office-oriented: assignments include managing accounts, communicating daily affairs with authorities, planning branch activities, implementing decisions taken at higher levels, dealing with legal matters, processing claims, marketing, taking advertising strategies, managing funds, etc.
  • LIC is responsible for policy sales and hiring new agents for the corporation. LIC is one of the officials who trains and guides the agents on policy servicing and customer assistance.
  • AAO job is not directly involved in LIC policy sales, so they don’t have any targets. ADOs may have sale targets to achieve, and their promotion and emoluments are associated with the business they bring in.
  • AAO Job is suitable for both men and women. However, ADO position may involve a bit more traveling and field work; it would be difficult for the women officers who are not experienced in sales.
  • The latest salary figure of an LIC AAO is above Rs. 40,000 and is more than what a Bank PO gets. ADOs have lower salaries, but their earning potential is unlimited on account of the commission revenue.
  • Sundays and Saturdays are holidays for LIC Officers.
  • LIC officers are entitled to life insurance at a lower premium, health coverage, gratuity, PF, loans. etc.

One disadvantage of this career option is that the LIC requires the newly appointed officers to sign a job contract/bond for four years from the date of their joining. You will have to pay around Rs. 2 Lakhs to the corporation if you wish to switch to a better job in this period.

Every year Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) recruits thousands of candidates from all over the country. As per the requirement, LIC takes people for a various domain. A large pool of trained and highly skilled manpower is one of the major assets of Life Insurance Corporation of India. Most of the recruitment process is done through a Written test and Interview.
