With improved healthcare and availability of/accessibility to super-specialty hospitals, life expectancy has improved significantly, from 67.29 per cent (2012) to 69.09 per cent (2018). More people now expect financial support after their retirement. These plans offer excellent financial support for aged persons, especially those from unorganized sectors.

There is at present no social security in place for people in India who have no means of receiving any income after their working years are over. There is an absolute need for such pension plans in India.

Before you choose a policy, make sure you go over the details of the policy so you know exactly what you will be getting from it.
