If the policy isn`t paid on time then the policy contract provides for a ‘grace period’, which gives the policyholder an additional period of time after the due date for the payment of the premium. During this period, you can still pay your premium and the life policy still continues to be in force. For monthly mode of payment, the grace period is usually 15 days, while for other frequency of payments (semi-annually or annually), it is usually 30 days. When your life insurance policy has lapsed, you may revive or reinstate it to full force within a period of time and under certain conditions such as declaration of your state of health at the time of reinstatement.
