What is an Annuity Plan?

An annuity plan is a kind of insurance policy that pays out a regular income to the policyholder after his retirement. The money that is paid (also known as the purchase price) during the annuity phase, is accumulated by the policyholder (also known as the annuitant) himself in the years leading to the retirement. An annuity plan works in two phases, the accumulation phase and the annuity phase. During the accumulation phase, the policyholder has to pay the premiums. He has the option of paying it in one go, but commonly the premium is divided and paid throughout the years. Once he retires and finishes paying the premiums, his annuity phase starts and he receives the monthly payments.

I have no liabilities but I want to go on a world tour. How much annuity do I need?

Some people like to travel and do things which they could not do during their employment years. If you too want to do so but don’t want your savings to dip, you can go for a high annuity plan. You can then plan the finances and divide the annuity in such a way that even after getting your tickets, you will have enough money to pay all the bills.

I retired as the chairman of my company. How much annuity do I need?

As the chairman of a company, you surely had a high social standing and your family was used to a lavish lifestyle. So keep this in mind when deciding upon the annuity coverage. You need an annuity large enough to help your family and yourself maintain that lifestyle for a longer period of time. Therefore, lifestyle is a determinant factor here.

I have a lot of savings and received an inheritance as well. How much annuity do I need?

An annuity plan ensures that your monthly incomes continue after your retirement as well and this in turn assures that you are never left in a financial crisis. However, if you already have the required funds to take care of your bills and expenses, you need not opt for an additional annuity. If you plan your finances well and invest your savings in an intelligent manner, it may sustain you for your life. However, since death is beyond our control and we cannot predict it, it would be advisable for you to go for a low life annuity cover. A life annuity plan would pay annuities till the last day of your life. So if you happen to live for a long time and your savings run out by then, you will have an additional source of income and won't have to depend on anyone else to take care of you.
