There are different rewards and benefits associated with LIC credit cards. LIC also provides multiple options in both modes of payment - online and offline - to its customers.
LIC Net Banking: Net banking facility can be availed by users only after registering online. To check the outstanding of credit card and to pay bills, the user is required to link their credit card with their net banking account, for which ATM pin details would be used. After linking the LIC credit card with net-banking account, the user would be able to check billed or unbilled transactions, due dates, reward points, etc. by simply logging on to the net banking account through the bank’s website, clicking on the “credit card” tab and selecting “credit card payment” option. LIC also provides hot listing facility under net banking to block it from any misuse in case the card has been lost or stolen.
LIC Mobile App: For this procedure, users need to download and install LIC’s app on their phones. After installation, users can login to the app by using their customer ID. The app has been made for the convenience of mobile users; it provides the same features as that of the net banking portal, so that it may be accessible from anywhere. Credit card accounts are highly secure through 128-bit SSL protection. Thanks to this feature, users can conduct safe transactions using their accounts from practically anywhere through a mobile app.
Auto payment debit: If a user has multiple cards, an auto debit option is available for payment of credit card bills. To use this facility, certain instructions need to be set on the concerned LIC savings account. This facility is used to pay the minimum amount or to repay the entire outstanding balance.

NEFT method: In this method, the user needs to enter the number of the LIC credit card as the payee account number as well as the corresponding IFSC code to make credit card bill payments. The payments that are made during working hours on weekdays get transferred on the same day, whereas the payments that are made after working hours get transferred on the next day.
RTGS (Real time gross settlement) method: This method is applicable for the people who use a credit card for higher transaction amount, as they can pay the whole amount at one time. For carrying out this transaction, net banking should be activated in the other bank account too.
Bill desk webpage: Bill desk page can also be used by non-LIC account holders. The user needs to enter the necessary details, like the card number and the amount, after which, the user is redirected to the concerned net banking portal to complete the transaction.
