Atal Pension Yojana: Atal Pension Yojana is a good option for guaranteed pension in low investment. Currently, under the Atal Pension Yojana, the government guarantees a pension of 1000 to 5000 rupees per month after 60 years. In this scheme of the government, a person up to the age of 40 years can apply. Let us know how much pension you will get after 60 years in Atal Pension Yojana.
60,000 rupees pension will be given annually after 60
The objective of Atal Pension Yojana is to bring every section under the purview of pension. However, the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) has recommended to the government to increase the maximum age under Atal Pension Yojana (APY).
Under the scheme, after making a fixed contribution to the account every month, after retirement, a monthly pension of Rs 1 thousand to Rs 5 thousand will be available. After investing only Rs 1239 in every 6 months, the government is guaranteeing a lifetime pension of Rs 5000 per month i.e. Rs 60,000 annually after the age of 60.
Will have to pay Rs 210 every month
According to the current rules, if at the age of 18 years, a maximum of Rs 5000 is added to the scheme for monthly pension, then you will have to pay Rs 210 every month. If the same money is given every three months, then Rs 626 will have to be given and Rs 1,239 will have to be given if given in six months. To get a pension of Rs 1,000 a month, if you invest at the age of 18, you will have to pay Rs 42 per month.
Joining at a young age will get more benefits
Suppose if you join at the age of 35 for 5 thousand pension, then for 25 years you will have to deposit Rs 5,323 every 6 months. In such a situation, your total investment will be Rs 2.66 lakh, on which you will get a monthly pension of Rs 5 thousand. Whereas on joining at the age of 18, your total investment will be only 1.04 lakh rupees. That is, about Rs 1.60 lakh more will have to be invested for the same pension.
