During the period July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019, Max Life Insurance will be paying Rs 1,084 crore as policyholder bonus on the participating policies in-force, an increase of 27 per cent over Rs 854 crore in the same period in the previous year.

In spite of volatile market conditions experienced over last year, we are able to offer stable bonus to our policyholders.
