How Much you Need to Save for Retirement (5 Steps)

How Much you Need to Save for Retirement

1. Invest In After Retirement Pension Plans:-

If you are planning to save some of your earning for your retirement, it is not necessary that you keep much of it so as to secure your future but instead you may choose to go for the after retirement pension plans which do not require much amount but just require you to deposit a small amount from your earnings so as to get pension after retirement.

2. Health Insurance:-

Besides going for a pension plan, you may also choose to go for some health insurance plan as well. These insurance plans involve health and disease cover and though the conditions that you will have to agree may change from one plan to other but still the health insurance may save much of your money post retirement if you meet some serious disease or health problem unfortunately and this way even the insuring company will be forced to look for the care that is being provided to you. You will be required to pay fewer amounts as hospital change and this holds valid even before the retirement period as well.

3. Open Up an R.D Account:-

You may even choose to go for opening up an RD Account in some bank or post office as these accounts can be opened up with an investment as low as 50 rupees which can be afforded even by the poor people so as to make savings. You just need to deposit a fixed amount of your choice every month in the bank and after a requisite time say 5 years, you will be able to get that money back with some interest added to it. You may choose to increase this amount depending on the income that you make during the month.

4. Some Investment In After Retirement Withdraw Deposits:-

There are certain other plans like after retirement withdraw deposits where you need to keep on depositing a requisite amount in bank as a saving which you get interest on and this money with added interest can after retirement be bought in use so as to use as an after retirement spendable money.

5. Make A Portion Of Your Salary To Be Deposited In Savings Account:-

If nothing that I mentioned suits your needs, you may choose to go for a savings account in which you may choose to keep any amount of your choice as a sum that can be withdrawn any time you wish to withdraw it for some purpose.
