1 3 Reasons You Need To Start Your Retirement Planning Today

By your mid-thirties, chances are that your standard of living has seen a great improvement since your twenties, when you first joined the workforce. But have you stopped to think about what happens when you are no longer able to work for a living? No, retirement planning is not something you need to worry about when you’re older. It’s something you need to act on today. Getting an early start on building that retirement nest egg can make a world of a difference to the security of your financial future. Here’s why you should start planning for your retirement today.

2 Factors to Consider While Buying Pension Plans

You are convinced that you need to buy a pension plan for a financially secure retirement. However, you are not sure how to get started and the various steps to take. Here are some major aspects about pension plans that you need to keep in mind before buying them.

Determine retirement savings target

When you are saving for your retirement through regular in retirement plans, or in a pension plan or a pension scheme, you need to figure out the savings you require at retirement. This will help you figure out the regular investment you need to make in pension plans. Remember to take into account your retirement savings from other sources like provident fund. In this stage, also take into account the retirement income needs of your spouse and family members, such as a financial dependent member with special needs. If this sounds a little complex for you, take the help of online calculators or the help of a financial advisor with proven expertise.

Start early

To have ample retirement savings, you need to buy the pension plan early in your work life. This will make sure you have ample time to make small investments so that you can save a large amount.

Premium payment period

When buying a pension plan from a life insurance company, get a sense of the time till which you will need to make the premium payment. This will keep you informed about your financial commitments to the pension plan.

Determine the kind of retirement income needed

The amount of regular investments you need to make in pension plans also depends on the retirement income arrangements you expect to have in place. For instance, if you have company pensions or superannuation funds, these, along with provident fund and gratuity, will mean that you will need to reinvest these retirement savings at retirement, or create regular income through, among other things, annuities. Since two thirds of retirement savings in pension plans or retirement plans have to be converted into regular retirement income, you need to have a sense of your retirement income needs.

Look beyond tax savings

Sure, pension plans in India provide annual tax deduction from total income under Section 80CCC of the Income-tax Act, 1961, for amounts upto Rs 1.5 lakh but that should not the main reason for buying a pension plan. Pension plans help you address the risk of outliving your money in retirement. You need to manage the risk in any case. Therefore, ensure that you eyes are firmly on your retirement income needs when buying a pension plan. In India, retired life is no longer a small period. The right decisions taken while buying a pension plan may well make a difference between you digging deeper in your pockets in retirement and leading a carefree retired life.
