Plan for a Peaceful Retired Life with Annuities

By Robert Jhonson Subscribe to RSS | April 5th 2012 | Views:

After retirement life should be peaceful and full of enjoyment since all your life you have worked hard to earn your living. And hence after retirement the hard working days should ideally be over. But it can only happen when you receive enough pensions to sustain you as well as your family and have enough money saved to act as cushion if and when there are any financial crunches. Saving from your monthly salary each month is up to you but if your company does not pay you any pensions or if the amount paid is meager then you can work on that too while you are still employed, by opting for annuities. This is one policy that is similar to arranging for your own pensions such that you can spend you retired days is peace without having to worry about money.

An annuity policy is a kind of saving as well as investment. You need to pay a premium of a certain amount for a particular period of time, say till the day of your retirement. After you retire, your money would be returned to you along with the interest accumulated as a lump sum amount or as monthly installments. If you opt for monthly installments which most people do, it would be like having pensions thus keeping the inflow of money to your household intact.

There are different kinds of annuities and each kind is suited for different situations. There are fixed, deferred and other such annuities and you can get information on each of them from your agent or from the Internet. Collect information and invest in an annuity policy that suits your needs, requirements as well as budget.

The money you wish to receive as either a lump sum amount or as monthly installments would depend on the amount of premium you pay for the duration of time. You can calculate all these yourself with the help of annuity calculators available online on different websites. But make sure that before buying the policy of any company, you have researched on the background of the company thoroughly. Another thing you should research as well is that different kinds of policies, like mentioned above, offer different interest rates, have different rates of premium and have different tenures. Hence make sure you understand the terms and condition of your chosen policy well before investing your hard earned money on it.
