Under this scheme, a senior citizen will get a return of 8% per year which will be paid monthly for 10 years, however, the investor can opt for other options as well, i.e. Quarterly, Half Yearly, or Annual options.

Additionally, once the first 3 years of the policy get completed, the senior citizen can get a loan of up to 75% of the amount he/she has subscribed to. The interest of the loan will be adjusted/deducted from the installments and principal. It is said that the LIC PMVVY senior citizen scheme will be closed after 31st March 2020, however, according to a leading news agency, there are chances that the central government can extend the scheme for more years.
