Max Life Immediate Annuity Plan
Max Life Immediate Annuity Plan is an Annuity Plan where the money needs to be paid in a lump sum and the annuity starts immediately. It is a Traditional Plan without Bonus facility.
What is Immediate Annuity – An Annuity is a product which provides regular payments and can be used as a Retirement Strategy. The person who purchases the annuity is called the annuitant.
In this plan, you need to pay a lump sum amount of money at the beginning of the plan called Purchase Price so that you receive annual payments in the form of Annuity for the rest of your life. Thus, in this plan, you would start to receive the payment immediately without having to wait. You can choose to receive the payments even after your death, for as long as your spouse is alive. The rate at which you would receive the Annuity depends on the type of the Annuity chosen.
Hence this plan is a good choice if you have not planned your retirement before but would like to avail pension now by paying a lump sum amount for lifelong security. Hence it is very suitable for people who have not bought a pension plan before and would like to buy one with retirement money.
How it works – In this plan, premium needs to be paid in a lump sum and annuity would start immediately. Annuity can be taken monthly or annually.
In this plan, Annuity would be paid at the prevailing annuity rate of the industry from the very next instalment. The amount of Money paid is used to Purchase Annuity is called the Purchase Price. Depending upon the age of the Annuitant, the Annuity Option Chosen and the frequency of payment chosen, the Annuity is paid as per prevailing rate approved by Insurance Regulatory & Development Authority (IRDA).
There are 3 Annuity Options to choose from:
Life Annuity- Annuity would be paid to the Annuitant as long as he is alive and nothing is payable after his death to the nominee as Death Benefit. This is the purest form of annuity which covers the risk of long life
Annuity Certain and then Life thereafter- There is a Minimum Guaranteed Period of 5/10/15 or 20 years for which Annuity would surely be paid and if the Annuitant is still alive, then the annuity payment continues for the rest of his life but nothing is payable after his death to the nominee as Death Benefit
Annuity for Life and then Return of Purchase Price- Annuity would be paid to the Annuitant as long as he is alive and after his death, the original Purchase price paid by the Annuitant is paid back to the nominee as Death Benefit and the policy terminates.
Annuity Option once chosen cannot be altered.
