As per my understanding, At the age 61 if I purchase PMVVY(Plan 842) with one time deposit of Rs. 750000/- in monthly pension mode, than I will get 5000/- Rs as monthly pension + 750000/- Rs at the end of the 10th year. So, total 6,00,000 + 7,50,000 = 13,50,000/- is the receivable amount. Am I right???

Replied : 10-06-2018 07:34:28
Yes, it is rightly understood but that will happen if policy holder survives 10 years. In case of less than 10 years of survival, pension will be available for less than 10 years.

Replied : 10-06-2018 07:39:54
It is to be returned either on completion of 10 years or in case of death before 10 years.

Post office's Senior citizen scheme (SCS) is not included in PMVVY's 15 limit, so one can invest up to maximum limit separately.
