What are Pension Plans?

Pension plans help an individual to plan for his retirement by ensuring regular payment of annuity after retirement.

Some common features of pension plans are:

  • There are two types of Pension plans called Deferred and Immediate Annuity. Under the former plan, the policyholder will have to wait for a specified period before the annuity payments start. Usually this period is when the policyholder pays premiums to the company which accumulate till the end of the period and then annuity payouts start. Under Immediate Annuity, the policyholder pays a lump sum amount and payouts start immediately without waiting for a certain period.
  • The plan vests on maturity from when the annuity payments start to accrue
  • Immediate Annuity plans have no feature of death benefit because annuity payments stop when the policyholder dies. Deferred annuity plans on the other hand provide for a death benefit during the deferment period when annuity payments do not accrue
  • The policyholder has to receive annuity payments from the accumulated corpus and if he wants he can withdraw 1/3rd of the amount in cash which called commutation of pension.

How does an Annuity Plan work?

An annuity plan works on a very basic principle – you create a fund for your retirement days by paying regular premiums throughout a period of time, and then when you retire and your regular income stops, the annuity plan substitutes your income by paying you regularly. This payment is made out of the fund you created for yourself.

What is ‘purchase price’ in an annuity plan?

The purchase price in an annuity plan is the combined value of the premiums you paid during the accumulation period of the plan. Once the accumulation period is over, the annuity period stars and it is at this time that the policyholder or he annuitant begins to receive the regular income.

What is an immediate annuity plan?

An immediate annuity plan is a kind of annuity plan where the policyholder begins receiving the annuity as soon as the purchase price is paid. The annuitant may opt to receive the annuity in monthly, quarterly, semi-yearly or annual installments.

What is a deferred annuity plan? 

In a deferred annuity plan, the annuitant opts to receive the money after a few years, ideally after he retires and his income stops.

How does a life annuity plan work?

As the name suggests, a life annuity plan continues to pay the annuitant till the time he is alive, or in other words till the last day of his life. This is a good type of annuity plan as this ensures that the annuitant doesn’t have to depend on anyone even after he retires and his regular income stops.
