As we can see from the above list of LIC Jeevan Akshay Annuity rates, the actual annuity or pension amount one gets is dependent on the pension option chosen and the age at the time of purchase of the policy. But in general, the annuity rates tend to be higher for higher age bands. And this is the trend across all variants of LIC Jeevan Akshay Plan 857 pension policy. So, you will get higher interest/annuity rates if you buy a LIC Jeevan Akshay policy at age 60 versus what you will get as pension when you buy at age 40.

So you can use the above list as a LIC Jeevan Akshay Pension Calculator to find out how much pension amount you will get as per your age and choice of the 10 options of Jeevan Akshay Plan. And please remember that we should also consider taxes as the annuity income is taxable. So the actual post-tax annuity rates will be much lower.

And here is an example of the annuity income or pension you will recieve as per the illustration provided by LIC:

A 45-year old purchases Jeevan Akshay Plan jointly with spouse aged 35-years by paying Rs 20 lakh. Here is the annual pension or the annuity income under various variants in this example:

Now whatever be the annuity rate at the time of purchase, it will remain fixed for life irrespective of whether it increases or decreases in later years for the new buyers. Except for in Option G where it increases by 3% each year.

The annuity can be paid either at monthly, quarterly, half yearly or yearly intervals. The numbers we saw earlier correspond to the annual payout only. If you opt for other payout options like monthly, quarterly, etc., the annuity rates will be slightly lower.
