Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana (PMJJBY) vs Suraksha Bima Yojana (PMSBY)

Difference between Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana (PMJJBY) and Suraksha Bima Yojana (PMSBY)

Many of our blog readers are getting confused in between the latest launched Government Social Security Schemes Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana (PMJJBY) and Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana (PMSBY).

Since both of the schemes offer same insurance coverage with same mode of payment, people are not getting clear picture of the benefits of the schemes.

In this article I have tried to clarify the difference between both the schemes by putting it in a tabular form.

2. Along with the joining form, subscribers are also required to submit self-certificate of good health in the prescribed proforma.
