Bajaj Allianz Life’s Longlife Goal will Enable You to Get Your Retirement Life Goal, Done!

Many in India have a life goal to retire early from their daily jobs to pursue their real interests. On the same hand, keeping all parameters in mind, Indians are living longer. Both these statements lead to one thing – no matter when you retire, you will have more years in hand to enjoy your post retirement life.

At the same time, while we are enjoying the fast pace economic development, inflation is a truth we cannot escape. The cost of living and healthcare are also increasing. Combine this with the earlier statement and it means that post retirement you will not only have a longer life ahead of you, but will need a substantial retirement corpus to take care of day-to-day expenses, health contingencies, needs of dependents and enough financial aid to meet all your retirement Life Goals.

Hence, investing towards retirement is essential. Today, there are several financial instruments that help you build a retirement corpus, but may have some short-falls. Some of these instruments offer guaranteed returns that ensure you get a certain amount for sure. This security and guarantee is good, however, such products may not account for inflation or increased cost of living.

Further, the taxation clauses associated with some instruments can impact the corpus you build or what you withdraw during your retired life. Also some of these instruments lack in liquidity options, restricting the withdrawal of funds, in case you may need for any emergency. While creating a retirement corpus, it is prudent to have some guaranteed income come in during your retired life. However, accounting for inflation and increasing costs of everything around, it is advisable to invest in retirement products that bring you the advantages of being market-linked to meet your Retirement Life Goals.
