What are Pension Plans?

Plans which provide a financial cushion in your retirement are called pension plans by way of providing income inflows. These plans come under two different types called Immediate and Deferred Annuity plans. Under Immediate plans, pension payments starts immediately after the payment of the lump sum premium which is called the Purchase Price. If the policyholder deceases during the course of receiving annuity payouts, the payouts stop without any further provision of death benefit. Deferred annuity plans are those where there is a wait of certain years after which the annuity payouts are made. During the waiting period called the deferment period, the customer can pay premiums to accumulate a fund from which pension payments are made after vesting, i.e. the date after which the payouts will commence. If the person dies during the deferment period, the company will pay him a specified death benefit.

Why does it seem mandatory to invest in a pension plan?

Individuals argue that if you want to make provisions for funding your life after you retire, you can invest in any avenue of investments like stocks and shares, mutual funds, bank fixed deposits, etc. While they might seem partly correct, what they do not understand is that none of the above-stated avenues would provide for a guaranteed and regular stream of income post retirement. Here is where the pension plans have an upper hand. These plans only provide a regular stream of income and not a lump sum value which can be used for meeting retirement expenses. While it is true that the earlier mentioned investments yield a good corpus, they provide a lump sum amount which might be used for other purposes rather than to meet expenses post retirement. Pension plans provide a guaranteed amount of money every year, half-year, quarter or month, as the policyholder wishes to receive, and the amount of annuity is stated beforehand. Thus, the policyholder can make planned savings to achieve any desired amount as pension. Thus pension plans give a clear picture of future pensions corresponding to an amount of premium paid in the present years. This makes the policyholder plan correctly for his retirement without any ambiguity.
