“Financial independence is a key factor as one grows old, especially with rising costs and increasing health vulnerabilities.

Shriram Life Deferred Annuity Plan seeks to close this gap and secure so that customers and their spouses can get financial support without depending on their children or others.” said company Managing Director and CEO Casparus J H Kromhout in a press release said on Friday.
