Mumbai: HDFC Life, one of India’s leading life insurance companies, has announced the launch of HDFC Life Saral Pension, a single premium, non-linked, non-participating product that offers life-long guaranteed annuity rates, right at the time of purchase.

HDFC Life Saral Pension is a standard, individual, immediate annuity product with simple features and standard terms and conditions that enables customers to make an informed decision for planning their retirement.

Speaking on the launch, Srinivasan Parthasarathy, Chief Actuary, HDFC Life, said: “Annuity plans are suitable for individuals who are closer to retirement age or have retired. These plans can act as a safeguard against market volatilities and falling interest rates. One starts receiving regular payments right after purchasing the product which ensures steady and regular income with locked-in annuity rates for the rest of their life.
