I opted a policy from LIC during college days with my part time salary. However, the maturity amount turned out to be less than expected. Currently, I am considering opting for a new policy and want to switch to a different one. Is there any possibility to transfer or close my previous policy while retaining all benefits, or can I transfer the entire amount to the new policy I am considering?

    I'm also assuming India because this seems to be about Whole Life, and most of the rest of the world has concluded that that is a bad option.

Yes from a pesonal finance insurance and investment must not be combined. You can check for surrender clauses in life insurance policy and surrender the policy. You cannot transfer benefits to a new policy. Take help of a CA in India.
