As you near your retirement, the most important thought on your mind would be to lead a secure and comfortable life as always without any dependence on others. Everyone loves financial independence, to enjoy and live a worry free and comfortable lifestyle. This is even more important in your golden years, as after so many years of hard work, money should not be a concern for you to decide how you would spend your retirement years.
In case of death of the annuitant (for single life) or last survivor (for joint life), the purchase price (excluding taxes) shall be payable as Death Benefit. Any outstanding annuity installments till the Date of Death shall also be payable along with the Death Benefit.
However, all the Annuity Installments paid from Date of Death to Date of Intimation of Death to the company shall be reduced from the Death Benefit payable.
Single life - till the death of the annuitant.
Joint life - till the death of the last survivor.
The annuity rates vary by purchase price band and therefore you would benefit from higher annuity rates if the purchase price (excluding taxes) is 2,00,000 or above. The purchase price bands and additional annualized annuity rate are specified below:
|Purchase Price Band
(excluding Goods and Services Tax & applicable cess (es)/levy, if any)
|Additional annualised annuity rate
(per 1000 of purchase price)
|> 2,00,000 to < 3,00,000||1.10|
|> 3,00,000 to < 5,00,000||1.50|
|> 5,00,000 to < 10,00,000||1.80|
Tax Benefits under the policy will be as per the prevailing Income Tax laws and are subject to amendments from time to time. For tax related queries, contact your independent tax advisor.
