What is an e-Insurance Account or eIA?
e-Insurance Account or (eIA) is an electronic insurance account opened by a person with an insurance repository wherein the insurance policies of a policyholder are held in an electronic form.
It is a simple, yet effective way to manage life insurance policy/policies. This feature, introduced by the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI), helps the policyholder store and access policies in a digital format, and be able to access it anytime and from anywhere. Furthermore, in this single account the policyholder can store all their insurance policies, and access them whenever they may need. All this is free of cost.
Each e-Insurance Account has a unique account number, log-in ID and password, thereby ensuring the account access is available only to a single policyholder.

- Single view for all policies
Less Paper work:
