NPS Calculator: Benefits of Starting at the Age of 21
Suppose, an investor joins a job at the age of 21 and with the same starts monthly investment of Rs 10,000 in NPS. In this, if you join NPS from the age of 21, then you have to invest in it till the age of 60 years i.e. for 39 years. Now look at the calculation-
Monthly investment in NPS: Rs 10,000
- Total contribution in 39 years: Rs 46.80 lakh
- Estimated Return on Investment: 10%
- Total Corpus on Maturity: Rs 5.76 crore
- Annuity Purchase: 40%
- Estimated Annuity Rate: 6%
- Pension at the age of 60: Rs 1.15 lakh per month
(Note: This calculation has been done on the calculator of the NPS Trust. The figures for pension and funds are approximate. Actual figures may vary.)
3.45 crore fund at the age of 60?
In NPS, if you take 40 per cent annuity (minimum that is required to be kept) and the annuity rate is 6 per cent per annum, then after retirement you will get Rs 3.45 crore in lump sum and 2.30 crore will go into annuity. Now from this annuity amount, you will get a pension of Rs 1,15,217 every month. The higher the annuity amount, the higher the pension you will get.
Annuity is actually a contract between you and the insurance company. Under this contract, it is necessary to buy an annuity of at least 40 percent of the amount in the National Pension System. The higher the amount, the higher will be the pension amount. The amount invested under annuity is received in the form of pension after retirement and the balance amount of NPS can be withdrawn in a lump sum.

In NPS, any citizen of India whose age is between 18 to 65 years can take part in this scheme after some necessary procedures. The responsibility of investing the amount deposited in NPS is given to the pension fund managers registered by PFRDA. They invest your investments in equity, government securities and non-government securities apart from fixed income instruments.
