Expenses don’t stop after retirement, only income does. Keeping this in mind, it’s important to make provisions for a regular income for your post-retirement years. Most people depend solely on the provident fund schemes, and are sorely disappointed and let down at a time when they need it most. The BSLI Immediate Annuity Plan addresses the concern of possibly inadequate finances in a person’s post-retirement years, and his/her requirement for comprehensive life insurance cover – and kills two birds with one stone.
