Right from the time we start working, we worry about saving enough for retirement. A retirement plan provides avenues to build a corpus to enjoy financial independence in your golden years. Most retirement plans also have a life insurance component, enabling you to safeguard your family’s financial future. Let’s see how you can use a 15-year retirement plan to your advantage.

What is a 15-Year Retirement Plan?

A 15-year retirement plan helps you accumulate a retirement corpus over 15 years. You can opt for a Unit-Linked Insurance Plan (ULIP) like HDFC Life Click 2 Retire to grow your money over a long period. These retirement plans let you choose avenues to invest your money while providing insurance coverage. You can adjust your investment over time to move to safer financial instruments as you near retirement.

How Does a 15-Year Retirement Plan Work?

Let’s use an example to see how you can use HDFC Life Click 2 Retire* as part of your 15-year retirement plan. Mahesh is a 30-year-old engineer who wants to plan for retirement. He hopes to retire at 60 and travel the world with his wife, who has quit her job to look after their newborn daughter. Mahesh opts for the HDFC Life Click 2 Retire plan*. As the sole breadwinner for the family, he requires a policy that will protect his family’s financial future. The policy provides life insurance coverage, ensuing Mahesh’s family will remain financially secure if something happens to him. Mahesh pays a premium of INR 2 lakhs per year for the next 15 years. He selects a mix of debt and equity funds to invest the amount. After the premium-paying term, the corpus continues to earn interest that gets reinvested, allowing for exponential growth. On maturity, 30 years after the initial investment, the plan reaches maturity. Mahesh can withdraw a part of the amount to meet his financial needs. He must use the rest to purchase an annuity plan for life-long income.

Things to Consider Before Selecting a 15-Year Retirement Plan

When you’re ready to select a 15-year retirement plan, evaluate the following crucial factors:

    When you start planning, clearly outline your timeline. By when would you like to retire and start fulfilling your goals? Consider how much time you have to grow your corpus and then identify the ideal financial tool to help you.
  • Your Future Goals
    What would you like to achieve once you hang up your work boots? List potential goals and evaluate how much you need to fulfil them. Consider the inflation rate while calculating how much you need once you retire. Look for 15-year plans that align with your goals.
  • Your Current Assets
    Once you know how much you need, evaluate what you already have. Assess your assets, current income, liabilities and existing investments. Identify 15-year plans to help you bridge the gap between what you have and your needs.

The answers to these questions will help you identify the ideal retirement plan for your dreams. Risk-averse individuals should opt for guaranteed options to secure their retirement corpus.
  • Insurance Coverage
    Retirement plans also provide insurance coverage. Evaluate your Human Life Value (HLV) to understand your required coverage. Select a policy that offers a significant payout to your loved ones. Remember, you want to secure their financial future as well.
