You are responsible for your comfort retirement, not the government or your employer. Retirement Funding is a holistic approach that needs to be implemented in order to cover every aspect of life after you have stopped working. When to start retirement planning? The answer is “the day you started work”.
How much should you save for retirement out of your monthly income?
A good thumb rule would be to save 10% of your net income (after deductions and tax) for retirement.
Survey after survey reveals that majority of people do not know how much money they might need to live the life they want and they do not have a proper plan in place to provide them in retirement.
The best retirement plan would be sustained systematic investment into a well diversified equity linked savings scheme (ELSS)
Long term returns on equity in emerging markets such as India: 14-15%
Long term returns on equity in developed countries: 9-10%
Withdrawal strategy from a retirement fund
A good withdrawal strategy after retirement is 5% of the fund value per annum or 1.25% of the fund value every quarter.
Register quarterly Systematic Withdrawal Plan (SWP) for 5 years at a time.
This will automatically lead to higher withdrawals, as the fund value increases over time.
