What are Pension Plans?
Annuity plans are those plans which provide a steady stream of pension payments after retirement so that the policyholder can plan for his retirement needs.
Some of the common features of pension plan are discussed underneath:
- The plan matures and payment of annuity starts from the Vesting Date
- Deferred and Immediate are two annuity options. Deferred annuity is one where payments are deferred or delayed and are payable after the lapsation of the accumulation phase where the customer is supposed to pay premiums. Death during deferment calls for the payment of death benefit. Immediate annuity is one where no waiting is required as annuity payments accrue from the next period as chosen by the policyholder after paying the single premium. In case of death, the company stops paying annuity.
- 1/3rd of the accumulated corpus can be withdrawn in cash which does not attract tax while the other 2/3rd is to be availed as a pension attracting tax in the policyholder’s hand.

How is an annuity plan different from a life insurance plan?
An annuity plan is actually the exact opposite of a life insurance plan. In the case of a life insurance policy, the payments commence once the policyholder dies. But in an annuity plan, the payments stop after the death of the policyholder. Also, in a life insurance plan, the risk lies on the insurance company as they cover the life of the policyholder. However, in an annuity plan, the risk lies with the policyholder as he or she pays the purchase price without knowing whether or not they will survive till the time the annuity period begins.
How much Annuity do I need?
The amount of annuity you need depends on a number of factors like your financial liabilities, goals, daily expenses, lifestyle, savings etc. You need to evaluate what your spending would be after you retire and then you will know how much annuity insurance to opt for.
My children are married and I have my own house and car. How much annuity do I need?
If the major financial liabilities, like your children’s marriages are already taken care of, you need not opt for a very large annuity. This is because you just need the financial assistance to pay your day to day bills, not to pay for a major event or an investment. If on the other hand, a person has a financial liability left, he may need a higher annuity.
