The first 100 “NUSI SURAKSHA KAVACH” policy holders will receive special mementos from NUSI. 

The statement issued by Abdulgani Y. Serang, General Secretary of NUSI reads, “You, me, everybody has to die one day. But, we can surely give our family members a secure future in our absence.” 

The initiative benefits the members up to the age of 60 years and assures the sum of Rs. 25,00,000 lakhs on natural cause death and Rs. 50,00,000 on death due to accident.

The insurance contract is said to be between the nominated members and the LIC as per the Jeevan Amar policy. LIC ensures the required medical of the members for insurance policy to be free of cost.
