Looking at the immense popularity of their policies, the Life Insurance Corporation of India has extended its horizon for Non-Resident Indians living in Canada and the USA as well. One such policy that LIC has allowed NRIs to invest in is LIC Jeevan Shanti.

LIC Jeevan Shanti Plan is a non-linked, single premium, non-participating, annuity plan where the insurer is rewarded with dual benefits. This advanced plan by the Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) can be purchased both offline and online.

Life Insurance Corporation of India offers the following options under this annuity plan:

  1. Immediate annuity

    Immediate income is provided to the policyholder depending upon the mode of payment, that is, yearly, half-yearly, quarterly, or monthly.

  2. Deferred annuity

    The deferment period can be from 1 year to 12 years. Under this option, the policyholder starts receiving the guaranteed amount after the completion of the chosen number of years.

Here is the eligibility difference between an immediate annuity plan and a deferred annuity plan:
