Pradhan Mantri Vaya Vandana Yojana (PMVVY) is a subsidized pension scheme categorically introduced for senior citizens above the age of 60. It is a government backed pension scheme that provides an alternate source of pension planning to the elderly. It is exclusively available through the LIC of India. You can contact any LIC agent to subscribe to this policy or log on to their website to purchase this policy.
The PMVVY Policy is unique in that; it offers assured returns on your investment. The returns are paid in the form of fixed pension at regular intervals as chosen by the policyholder. The policy also comes with a maturity benefit and death benefit giving additional assurances to the family of the pensioner.
It was initially announced from 4th May, 2017 to 31st March, 2020. It was recently extended up to 31st March 2023, for a further period of three years beyond 31st March, 2020.
About PMVVY – Pradhan Mantri Vaya Vandana Yojana
PMVVY is open only to people who are 60 years of age or older. The PMVVY is a pension fund for senior citizens with fixed dividends on a monthly, quarterly, half-yearly or annual basis for a term of 10 years. As an investor, you can choose your investment either on the pension amount you want to receive or the purchase price you are able to invest in PMVVY.
The cumulative investment that can be made in PMVVY is limited to Rs. 15 lakhs per senior citizen and the maximum monthly pension for PMVVY is Rs. 9250 per senior citizen. Thus, if both partners are over 60 years of age, the maximum monthly pension could be Rs. 18,500 with a family contribution of Rs. 30 lakhs. The pension in the PMVVY does not depend on the age of the investor.
The updated PMVVY would have a lower investment interest rate than before. Unlike in the older version of PMVVY, the interest rate in the modified PMVVY will fluctuate depending on the financial year (FY) in which the investment is made.
The scheme is valid for 10 years and for investments made in the fiscal year 20-21 to 31st March 2021, the government has declared the interest rate to be payable at 7.4% per month i.e. 7.66% per year for a period of 10 years. For investments made in the next two fiscal years, i.e. 2021-22 and 2022-23, the Government will announce the interest rate of the PMVVY at the beginning of each fiscal year.
