Additionally in the event of death of the Life assured, it will provide financial protection to dependants, if Sum assured has been opted for.

If death occurs after the guarantee period, no death benefit is payable)
- A pension increasing each year by a fixed percentage which shall not exceed 3% per annum. This increasing pension shall be payable for a guarantee period of 5 years from Retirement Date and for Life thereafter. (In the event of death of the Life Assured during the guarantee period, a death benefit equivalent to the total pension remaining to be paid up to the end of the guarantee period, shall be payable to the beneficiary.
