Atal Pension Yojana Withdrawal Procedure 

Let’s take a look at the different exit process of APY scheme. 

In case the subscriber reaches the age of 60 years:

Once the subscriber reaches the age of 60 years, he/she will need to submit a withdrawal request for either higher monthly pension or guaranteed minimum monthly pension to the bank where the APY account is held. If the returns are higher as compared to the guaranteed returns then the subscriber will receive the higher monthly pension. In case of demise of the subscriber, the equal amount of monthly pension will be paid to the spouse. Any other beneficiary will be eligible to avail the annuity amount in case of demise of both the subscriber and spouse. 

In case of demise of a subscriber after reaching the age of 60 years:

 In case of demise of the subscriber after attaining the age of 60 years, the spouse will get the pension amount. The other beneficiary of the scheme will receive the pension amount only after the demise of both subscriber and the spouse. 

In case of demise of the Subscriber before reaching the age of 60 years: 

 In case of demise of the subscriber before attaining the age of 60 years, the spouse can continue with the account. The account will be transferred in the name of the spouse and they will need to make the contribution till the subscriber would have attained the age of 60 years. The pension amount payable to the spouse will be the same as it would have been to the subscriber. 

In case the spouse discontinues the scheme, the entire accumulated fund will be returned to the spouse or beneficiary of the scheme.
