Your professional life may be full of stress due to multiple responsibilities and a hectic schedule. Many people who have thoroughly made the most of their professional lives look forward to a relaxing retirement. But an important component that goes missing in retirement is the monthly salary that you have been earning all your life.

Annuity Plans

Your professional life may be full of stress due to multiple responsibilities and a hectic schedule. Many people who have thoroughly made the most of their professional lives look forward to a relaxing retirement. But an important component that goes missing in retirement is the monthly salary that you have been earning all your life. After retiring, while some of your expenses may come down, there will still be other financial responsibilities.

Family Picture - Tata AIA Life Insurance Plans

To take care of these financial obligations and to ensure your family’s financial security, you need to have a stable annuity plan or a pension plan. A flexible, robust and well-planned annuity plan can help you with a regular income or a lump sum payment so that you can face life after retirement with solid financial support.

What are Annuity Plans?

Annuity plans are retirement plans that enable you to receive a regular income during your retirement years after you invest in the plan over the years or in the form of a lump sum. The invested amount is then used to generate the returns on the annuity plan, which is paid out to the policyholder during their retirement years.

Annuity plans come with flexible investment options as well as payout options to ensure that you can accumulate your retirement funds at your convenience and receive the payouts for fulfilling your financial goals.

Why Do I Need a Pension Plan?

When you are about to retire, a new phase of your life awaits you. However, one of the major challenges during this phase is the lack of a stable income that you enjoyed during your professional years. But if you plan well in advance, you can choose a pension plan of your choice and invest the premiums over the years to accumulate enough funds until your retirement.

You can also choose how you would like to receive your payouts so that you can plan your expenses accordingly. Most annuity plans or pension plans come with the option of a monthly income so that you can plan your essential expenses and also set aside some money for your other major goals.

A pension plan is necessary to ensure the complete financial protection of your family and all their needs. And if your pension plan also has a life insurance cover, then they can be covered against financial emergencies even in your absence.

How Does Annuity Work?

To understand how an annuity works, let’s take a look at the example below:

Suresh, a 45-year-old professional, would like to plan his retirement such that he is able to receive a regular income in the absence of his salary. Therefore, he invests ₹20 Lakh in an annuity plan (2 Lakh for 10 years) of his choice. This annuity plan will gather returns on the investment for the next 15 years or until Suresh turns 60 years old and retires.

After this, the current annuity rates will be locked in, and after he retires, he will be able to receive anywhere between ₹2 Lakh to ₹2.5 Lakh per year as a regular income for the rest of his life.

These are some of the ways in which annuity plans work:

  • Life Annuity

    Under a life annuity, you will be able to receive a payout of the benefits until your demise. In the event of your death, these annuity payouts will cease to be paid. However, while you receive the benefits, you can choose the payout mode – annually, quarterly or monthly.

  • Life Annuity with Return of Purchase Price

    Till the time you are alive, you will be able to receive the annuity payouts as per the income frequency chosen by you. The purchase price will be returned to your nominee after your demise.

  • Joint Life Annuity with Return of Purchase Price

    Till the time you are alive, you will be able to receive the annuity payouts as per the income frequency chosen by you . On death of the primary annuitant, the annuity will be paid out o the surviving annuitant. The purchase price will be returned to your nominee on the second annuitants’ death.

  • Longer policy tenure or whole life coverage - How is Your Life Insurance Premium Calculated?
    Inflation-indexed Annuity

    As each year goes by, the annuity rate will increase by 2-5%. However, even if the annuity rate may not exactly match the inflation rate, it is adequate enough to ensure that your family’s financial commitments can be met and you and your loved ones can enjoy a stress-free post-retirement life. Hence, a lot of pensioners consider annuity plans for their retirement planning.

  • Pre-existing health conditions as diagnosed - How is Your Life Insurance Premium Calculated?
    Annuity for a Guaranteed Period

    Under this type of annuity, the annuity benefits will be paid out for a fixed period of 5, 10 or 15 years as chosen. The annuity reduced post the guaranteed period and continues till the annuitant’s demise.

Over the years, your wealth will accumulate and grow, which also helps in beating the inflation so that you are not burdened with the effects of the inflation rate during retirement.

What are the Different Types of Annuity Plans?

  • Immediate Annuity

    In an immediate annuity plan, you can start receiving the payouts soon after the initial investment is made. If you are nearing the retirement age, you can choose this type of annuity..

  • Deferred Annuity

    Under a deferred annuity plan, your money will be invested for a fixed period before the payout begins. It can be chosen by individuals who are working and are about to retire after 10-15 years. It may also come with a life insurance cover, which will pay out a sum assured to your nominees in case of your untimely demise.

  • Variable Annuity

    As the term suggests, within the variable annuity plans, the payout is not fixed and will vary from company to company. This is because the payout is completely based on the market performance of the insurance company. Besides, the plan is market-linked and is better suited for high-risk investors. If the market returns are good, the payouts will also be lucrative.

  • Fixed Annuity

    In the case of a fixed or guaranteed retirement income plan, the amount of the payout is fixed for the whole period of the annuity plan.

What are the Steps to Retirement Planning?

  • Secure and protective cover for family - Benefits of Life Insurance plans
    Financial goal-setting

    It is important to know how much money you will need to stay comfortable in your retirement year. This is how you will be able to set the goals for your future. The needs of your other family members and all their aspirations will have to be considered, and that is how you will be able to plan the finances.  

  • Covered against critical illnesses - Benefits of Life Insurance plans
    Knowing your current situation

    Understand how much you earn, what you can save, and how much you should invest in an annuity plan. Your current income is important as it helps you determine how much you can save for the future. If your current income is sufficient for your family’s present needs, remember that their future needs will also have to be accounted for, and your savings should grow accordingly.

  • Tax Savings Under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act - Benefits of Life Insurance plans
    Examine your risk-appetite

    When saving or investing your money, know that all investment options are not suitable for you. How much risk you can take on will decide if certain investments are better for you. For instance, a retirement plan or an annuity plan will be more suited to the needs of low-risk investors who want to avoid volatile investments such as the stock market.

  • Protect your family against life’s uncertainties - Benefits of Life Insurance plans
    Allocate the funds

    Once you have decided how much you plan to save, what you need to save for, and what your options are, it is finally time to allocate the funds to different avenues. Generally, pushing all your funds into a single investment or savings option may not yield the best results. Therefore, while a guaranteed retirement plan should have most of the investment, consider other options too.

  • Higher Coverage at Low Cost - Benefits of Life Insurance plans
    Monitor and reassess

    It is essential to review your investments and savings from time to time. As the years pass, the inflation rate fluctuates, and it may be necessary to allocate your funds to more reliable and guaranteed income options such as retirement plans. You can accordingly stop or continue your investments.  

When Should you Start Planning for Retirement?

You can always choose the age at which you want to retire and plan for it accordingly. This will also depend on which age you start the annuity planning. In most cases, people choose to retire between the age of 60 to 65 years as there may be physical and mental limitations that may not suit one’s profession anymore.

If you are in your 30s, then retirement at the age of 55 years will give you about 20 years of retirement planning. During these 20 years, you can invest in a retirement plan regularly that will give you guaranteed returns that beats inflation.

Even if you start planning your retirement in your early 40s, it is safe to say that you will have at least 15 years of retirement planning. Since these years are most important for accumulating your wealth, ensure that you save and invest enough so that your retirement years are not spent worrying about your finances.

Though there is no harm in starting your annuity planning closer to your retirement, starting early has its own benefits. Firstly, it is easier to invest an affordable premium in your annuity plan each month or year, so that you can accumulate a greater amount over the years. Secondly, by paying affordable premiums, you can also manage your other investments and essential expenses without feeling the burden of planning your retirement.

As you grow older, or if you start planning later, you can opt for a more aggressive investment method where you will have to invest a greater amount in a short span of time. While this may be possible for some people, it can put a burden on others. Hence, it is advisable to start your retirement planning between the age of 30 and 40 years.

How to Choose the Right Pension Plan?

  • Returns

    Your choice of annuity plan should mainly be based on the type of returns you can expect from the plan. Always ensure that the returns are guaranteed so that you don’t have to worry about financial stability during retirement. Guaranteed income also ensures complete peace of mind for you and your family.

  • Liquidity

    You should be able to access your funds as and when you need them in case of an emergency. So if you have an annuity plan that offers guaranteed regular income, then you can easily plan how to use your regular income for your long-term and short-term goals since you already have the financial resources and you are at peace knowing that the funds are accessible in case of an emergency. 

  • Tax Benefits

    During your retirement years, paying taxes can take a toll on your accumulated retirement funds. Hence, look out for tax benefits under the relevant sections of the Income Tax Act that can help you save on your taxes and enjoy your retirement years with fewer worries of losing money on taxes.

  • Maximum Investment Amount

    Depending on the annuity plan you choose and your insurance provider, you can check the maximum investment amount in your retirement plan. If the plan allows, you can opt for the maximum savings so that you need not have to worry if your funds will be adequate enough for your retirement years.

  • Additional Benefits

    Look out for additional benefits in retirement plans like a life insurance cover or top up benefits on your annuity plan. Features like this ensure that in case of your death, your family will be able to support themselves financially and also take care of their future expenses without breaking the bank.
