    One of my LIC policies is maturing

    Could you please correct the below sentence? I am writing this mail to LIC (Life Insurance corporation of India) agent.

    One of my LIC Policies is mature on 23rd Jan 2017. Could you please inform me, how much I get at maturity after considering all the benefits?

    In the above, use the non-capitalized "policies."

    I see no reason to use 'would' there. I'd use 'will'.

    Re: One of my LIC policies is maturing

    "Would" could be used if you had a choice of actions upon the policy's maturity. For example, if you can choose to cash it in or to continue paying into it, you could say "How much would I receive if I cashed it in when it matures?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
