What are Pension Plans?
Pension Plans or annuity plans are plans which are designed to take care of the income flow for the individual after retirement. Post retirement when the income of the individual dries up, the lifestyle expenses continue and there must be a provision to meet such expenses. Retirement plans help in providing a regular cash flow to individuals so that they can enjoy their retirement peacefully.
Pension Plans have some unique features which are listed below:
- There is a concept of vesting which is the date at which the plan terminates or matures
- Pension plans can be taken as Immediate Annuity Plans or Deferred Annuity Plans. Under Immediate Annuity Plans, a lump sum is paid by the policyholder and the annuity payments start immediately from the next period chosen. Under deferred annuity, premiums are first paid by the policyholder which accumulate into a corpus and thereafter annuity payments start from the vesting date
- There is no life cover. Annuity payments stop when the annuitant (or his spouse in case of joint life annuity) dies. However, under deferred annuity, death benefit is applicable if the annuitant dies in the deferment period
- On vesting, either the entire corpus can be used to avail annuity or 1/3rd of it can be withdrawn in cash and the rest 2/3rd can be used to avail annuity. The withdrawn part is called commuted pension.
Why Pension Plans
Being dependent on others, especially financially is a curse. It is always better to provide for one’s finances even when there is no income. Retirement is a period where the expenses remain the same or maybe increase but income either decreases or diminishes completely. Having an insurance plan is prudent in such a scenario as the plan will provide an individual with the necessary finance required in the old age. Pension plans offered by life insurance companies provide a regular stream of income and come in many variants. They can be taken to cover the life of the policyholder’s spouse as well under the joint annuity plans. So, buying a pension plan is a prudent step towards an individual’s retirement planning.
