+May I take a loan against my Annuity account?
The Annuity Plan allows you to borrow money from your Annuity account. There are two types of loans offered:
- Personal Loans, with a term of less than five years, and
- Home loans for the purchase of a primary residence, with a term between 5 and 30 years.
