Some factors to consider
- Start early
- Work out your likely retirement income
- Plan based on your life stage
- Annuity plans
The earlier you start planning for your retirement, the more time you have to build a corpus for a happy after-work life. Also, enlist the help of pension calculators to determine your corpus amount.
Work out your likely retirement income
Working out how much you are likely to have at retirement is a good point to start on. Start early to build a sizeable corpus. Also, the power of compounding gives a boost to your retirement corpus by building on the interest earned. Furthermore, the right pension scheme lets you plan your retirement in a phased manner.
Plan based on your life stage
You need to plan your scheme according to the life-stage that you are at. Your life stage plays a major role is determining your premiums and investment vehicles when planning your retirement.
While building your corpus, consider annuity plans, which are of two kinds- deferred and immediate. Under a deferred annuity plan, the pay-out is received at the beginning of your retirement age, i.e. you will receive the pay-out at the age of 60, if that’s the retirement age decided by you. Whereas, in an immediate annuity plan you invest a lump-sum and begin to receive the annuity immediately. Both plans are used to satisfy your needs, at different retirement stages. Immediate annuity plans are suitable for individuals who are going to retire soon.
