BSLI Immediate Annuity Plan

Through your working years, you work hard and save money to ensure that you can lead a comfortable life after retirement. When you retire, while your regular source of income stops, your expenses don't. With increasing life expectancy and rising medical costs, the need to have an alternate income after retirement has become very important. On retiring you would receive a lump sum amount from your employers like the Employee Provident Fund or from other forms of savings that you have made. You require a financial planning tool that allows you to club your other savings and lump sum payouts which you can convert into a regular income plan. Presenting the BSLI Immediate Annuity Plan - a traditional, non-participating, single premium annuity plan that uses your savings to give you a regular income in your retirement years.
