New Delhi, October 13, 2022: Max Life Insurance Company Ltd. (“Max Life” / “Company”), has launched an enhanced variant of ‘Max Life Guaranteed Lifetime Income Plan’ (UIN: 104N076V14 –  a Non-Linked, Non-Participating Individual General Annuity Savings Plan) designed to ensure a steady post-retirement income stream. With this plan, customers will now have the option of regular systematic investment to plan early for retirement and lock the annuity amount for life at the time of purchase. 

The Max Life Guaranteed Lifetime Income Plan offers customers the option to choose between immediate and deferred annuity. They also have the option of selecting a joint life option to ensure the same amount of lifelong annuity to their loved ones even after one’s death. Under deferred annuity, the customer can lock the annuity amount at the time of purchase only either by paying a lump sum amount in one go or investing regularly in a systematic way as per his/her convenience. This plan provides the flexibility to choose the annuity amount one wants to receive post-retirement with the option to invest for different premium payment terms. 

The minimum purchase price of the Plan is subject to a minimum annuity payout being at least Rs. 1,000 per month or Rs. 12,000 per annum, while there is no maximum premium limit.
