What is an Online Pin (O-Pin)?
What is an O-pin?
What is an O-pin and how does it differ from your regular login ID and password?
O-pin is the 6-digit online password that a policy holder uses to carry out online transactions, like Unit Linked Fun Switches, Fund Apportionment, Fund Withdrawal and Frequency Change. Although your regular ID can be used to check your policy details, you require an O-pin to carry out actual transactions on your policy. Thus, the O-pin acts as password-within-a-password, an extra security layer that you need to pass before you can change the way your policy is being handled.
Is it necessary to have an O-pin? What are its advantages?
It is not necessary to have an O-pin, as the transactions mentioned above can be carried out by going to an agent in person as well. But O-pins carry a huge advantage of convenience over the regular method of fund management. If you manage your funds via an agent, you have to fill in a return form, submit it to THE NEAREST Bajaj Allianz branch office and so on, making it a long list of paperwork and procedure that must be completed before your funds are moved where you want them. But if you use an O-pin, you can carry out your transactions anytime, anywhere. Keep in mind, however, that as yet, the O-pin service is not available on our mobile application.
What is the exact process by which one can apply for an O-pin?
