Brief on the different annuity options

The plan offers 7 options to choose from as per your retirement needs:

  • Single Life without Return of Premium:

    In this option, annuity starts at the end of the deferment period chosen by you and the amount will be paid for Annuitant’s entire life.

    If the Annuitant passes away during the deferment period, a benefit amount known as Death Benefit1 shall be payable to the nominee. On death of the Annuitant after the deferment period, no Death Benefit would be payable and the policy shall terminate
  • Joint Life without Return of Premium:

    The difference between a Single life option and a Joint Life option is that in a Joint Life option, the annuity is paid not only for Primary Annuitant’s entire life, but on death of the Primary Annuitant, the annuity amount continues to be paid to the Joint Life (known as the Secondary Annuitant) chosen by you. The Secondary Annuitant can be the Primary Annuitant’s spouse/ child/ parent or sibling. On the death of the Secondary Annuitant, no further benefits would be payable and the policy shall terminate

    In case of death of both Primary and Secondary Annuitants during the deferment period, a benefit amount known as Death Benefit1 shall be payable to the nominee. Thereafter, no further benefits would be payable and the policy shall terminate. In case of death of either Primary or Secondary Annuitant after the deferment period, no Death Benefit will be payable

    In case Waiver of Premium benefit option is chosen, the Total Premiums Paid would include premiums waived off due to trigger of Waiver of Premium benefit
  • Single Life with Return of Premium:

    Similar to the first plan option, here too the annuity starts at the end of the deferment period chosen by you and the amount will be paid for Annuitant’s entire life. In case the annuitant passes away, Death Benefit1 would be payable to the nominee and the policy shall terminate
  • Joint Life with Return of Premium:

    On the death of the Secondary Annuitant, the Death Benefit1 shall be payable to the nominee. Thereafter, no further benefits would be payable and the policy shall terminate

    In case Waiver of Premium benefit option is chosen, the Total Premiums Paid would include premiums waived off due to trigger of Waiver of Premium benefit

  • Single Life with Booster Payouts:

    As one grows older, along with the need for income, it is also essential to have access to supplementary funds to take care of the unplanned expenses.
