Every working person understands the importance of saving and investing for the future. Without adequate planning, you risk not having enough to enjoy a fulfilling retired life. Young professionals have started investing early to secure their golden years. Let’s see how you can use a 25-year retirement plan to enjoy retirement.

What Is a 25-Year Retirement Plan?

A 25-year retirement plan provides the financial tools to build a retirement corpus over 25 years. Many retirement plans use compounding interest to grow the corpus and offer guaranteed returns. However, when you have 25 years to plan, you can opt for a Unit-Linked Insurance Plan (ULIP) like HDFC Life Click 2 Retire*. The policy lets you choose funds to invest your premiums. They offer a guaranteed vesting amount with market-linked returns and life insurance coverage, enabling you to secure your family’s financial future.

How Does a 25-Year Retirement Plan Work?

We can understand how a 25-year retirement plan works with an example. Akash is a 30-year-old marketing executive. Since college, he has followed a strict savings plan that allowed him to meet his financial goals. Akash followed the same strategy while working. He put 20% of his income into a separate savings account. Akash used the saved amount to pay annual premiums of INR 1,50,000 for 25 years for his HDFC Life Click 2 Retire plan. He selected a mix of debt and equity funds to earn market-linked returns. After 15 years, Akash decided to make changes to his fund allocation. He moved from an equity-heavy investment to a debt-heavy portfolio to safeguard his corpus and earn steady returns. Akash decided to retire early at 57. He withdrew 60% of the accumulated corpus and purchased an immediate annuity with the balance. It provides a stable income for the rest of his life, allowing him to enjoy his retirement and fulfil his goals. For the 25 years that Akash maintained the retirement plan, he also received life insurance coverage. If anything happened to him during the policy tenure, his beneficiary or heir would have received a payout.

Why Choose a 25-Year Retirement Plan?

Let’s better understand why you should opt for a 25-year plan.

Things to Consider Before Selecting a 25-Year Retirement Plan

You must evaluate these factors before selecting a 25-year plan.

  • Retirement Timeline

    When do you want to hang up your work boots? While some people opt for early retirement, others who enjoy good health in their 60s hope to retire later than usual. Consider your personal goals and outline your ideal retirement age. Understand the timeline you’re working with and find plans that help you build a corpus accordingly.

  • Retirement Goals

    How do you want to spend your time when you no longer have a 9 to 5? Many retirees start small consultancies or learn how to play a musical instrument. Evaluate how much your retirement goals could cost. Then identify plans that will help you accomplish them.

  • Existing Assets

    While planning your future finances, do not forget about existing assets. Consider your future income from property and other investments. Evaluate how much you still need and look for plans to help you bridge the gap.

  • Insurance Coverage

    Retirement plans offer insurance coverage. You must ensure the policy provides your loved ones with adequate funds to maintain their financial stability. Calculate your Human Life Value (HLV) and look for plans that provide the needed cover.

  • Inflation Rate

    Consider the inflation rate and how it could impact your future finances. You want to identify retirement options that offer higher returns than inflation to secure your financial future.

Once you know what you’re working towards, you can identify a 25-year retirement plan that aligns with your needs. Saving and investing over 25 years provides enough time to build an adequate corpus so you can fulfil your retirement goals. Ensure you evaluate your retirement timelines and goals before selecting a plan for the future.
