New Delhi: Max Life Insurance has overtaken state-owned insurer Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) in terms of claims settlement for individual deaths in FY18, according to the data released by IRDAI.

“Four years ago, 50 percent of the rejected claims would be fraudulent claims,” said V Viswanand, Deputy Managing Director, Max Life. “Most fraudulent claims occur due to the lapses in the underwriting process,” he added further.
