If you work in a private company and do not have a pension benefit then the National Pension System (NPS) can prove to be a beneficial option for investment. By investing in this scheme, you can make a big corpus for retirement so that the pension keeps coming regularly. Here we are giving you complete information about this scheme.
Invest from the start of the job
Retirement planning should begin from the time you step into your first job so that maximum pension benefit can be received at the time of retirement. If one invests Rs 4,500 every month in NPS from the age of 21, then till the age of 60, he will be able to invest for 39 years.
That is, at the rate of Rs 54,000 annually, his investment in 39 years will be Rs 21.06 lakh. If an average return of 10% is given in NPS, then on maturity, he will get Rs 2.59 crore. Accordingly, on retirement at the age of 60, a pension of Rs 51,848 will be received every month.
This calculation has been done on an estimate. By the way, on an average, 8 to 12% returns are available in National Pension System (NPS).
How much to take annuity?
In National Pension System, if you take an annuity of 40% and the annual rate of annuity is 6%, after retirement you will get a lump sum of Rs 1.56 crore. The remaining Rs 1.04 crore will go towards annuity. Pension will be given every month from this annuity. The higher the annuity amount, the higher will be the pension.
