This pension scheme is launched in the purview of the increasing life expectancy that needs a robust insurance cover while successfully meeting the financial expenses of daily lifestyle.

According to Shaji M. Shankar, Senior Divisional Manager, Divisional Office, LIC, Thiruvananthapuram, “The importance of an annuity-based plan is critically important for meeting the financial demands of senior citizens who live up to 80 years and more. The lifecycle data for the last 50 years predicts that in the next 50 years, the average life expectancy will increase to 110 years from the current 70-80 years. Hence, we need a robust insurance cover to protect the life and savings of senior citizens above 60 years with this remarkable pension scheme.”
