What are Pension Plans?

These plans come in two versions and provide a source of income to people in their older ages when they have retired from active employment. Immediate Annuity plans are where the policyholder pays a bulk amount to the company to buy the plan and then annuity payouts start from the next frequency without any delay. No money is payable if the policyholder dies during the annuity phase. Deferred annuity plans are those where the annuity payments are delayed. The policyholder buys the plan for a specific term, called the deferment period, makes payments for the premium required during this period and when the period expires is eligible to receive annuity. If he dies during this period, a specific benefit is paid as death benefit. The policyholder can only withdraw 1/3rd of the accumulated amount in cash while the remainder has to be used to avail annuity.

  • Under the plan, the annuity payments will start immediately from the next chosen frequency (monthly, quarterly, half-yearly or annually) after the payment of the single premium

  • The annuity payouts can be availed on a single life which will be guaranteed for the annuitant’s life or on a joint life basis which will be guaranteed for the annuitant’s life till he is alive and post his death, for the secondary annuitant’s life

Who needs an Annuity Plan?

An annuity plan, also known as a retirement plan, as the name suggests is best suited for retired people. However, though the plan benefits the retired folk, it is very important to note here that the plan should be bought by the individual well before his retirement. So in essence, an annuity plan should be taken by a person who is planning ahead for his retirement years as such a plan would provide the person with all the financial assistance needed in that phase of his life.

I am a 45 year old person. Do I need an annuity plan?

If you are 45 and still have not taken an annuity plan, you most definitely need to do so at the earliest! An annuity plan substitutes the policyholder’s regular income after his retirement by paying out regular ‘salaries’. But where does this salary come from? The policyholder, known as an annuitant here, builds up a fund while he still can afford it by paying regular premiums. This is known as the accumulation phase of an annuity plan. The annuity phase begins when he retires. Therefore, the earlier the accumulation phase begins, the easier it is for the policyholder to build up a healthy corpus that is large enough to help him pay his bills during the annuity phase.
