HDFC Life Assured Pension Plan-ULIP

This is a pension plan which accumulates your money for the retirement kitty. You can take maximum up to 1/3rd of the maturity amount as lump sum and the rest must be converted into annuity, and will be paid periodically.

HDFC Life APP has benefits such as:

  • Capital Guarantee of 101% - 135% - APP is a unit linked plan that provides you the upside of the equity markets. However, to protect you from the market downfall, you have the Assured Vesting Benefit of 101% -135%, depending on the Premium Paying Term and Policy Term combination. This means that your capital is completely protected from any downside
  • Pension Multipliers – As a Loyalty benefit, Pension Multipliers would be added to the fund value every alternate year starting from the end of 11th policy year. These additions will be equivalent to 1% of average fund value for the immediate preceding two years, subject to the policy being in force and all premiums paid till date.
  • Early start to boost your corpus – With APP you can start your retirement planning as early as 18 years. The earlier you start, you would gain from the power of compounding and be able to build a bigger corpus before your retirement
  • Lower vesting age limits – The minimum vesting age of APP is 45 years, this would help you to plan for early retirement

Annuity rates are a function of prevailing market conditions at the time the annuity is bought. Other factors that determine annuity rate are - gender, age, annuity option chosen & premium band.

This plan has a minimum vesting age of 45 years only, which would help to plan for an early retirement. You don’t need to wait till 60 years of age. However, once you have fixed your vesting age, it is recommended that you continue for the entire term.

It’s nice to hear that you have already made provisions for your savings. However, the objective of a Pension Plan is very different. Pension Plans are insurance plans that offer you an income/ pension after retirement when you may not have any other adequate source of income.

This is not possible with any other plan. Moreover, pension plans can’t be liquidated easily, which ensures that your savings stay intact and a kitty is automatically built for your retirement.

The Assured Pension Plan is a Unit Linked Pension Plan by HDFC Life. This plan aims to help you plan for a steady income source for retirement.

You can choose from a variety of Premium paying & policy term options as per your comfort and plan your retirement. HDFC Life APP provides you the benefit of equity participation with the comfort of a capital guarantee. To boost your fund value, you also have the pension multipliers that are added to your fund post 11th year.

One of the biggest challenges of planning for your retirement is to ensure that you have saved enough money during your working years that will take care of your expenses once you retire. Given the rising cost of living, increased life expectancy and inflation, it is always wise to invest in a Pension Plan. HDFC Life Assured Pension Plan can help you achieve your retirement goals by planning for it well in advance.

Yes, there are charges as every other ULIP plan, but there is also a Pension Multiplier from the 11th year onwards every alternate year. The longer policy term you go for, the more you gain through Pension Boosters added to the fund value.

HDFC Life APP comes to you with a host of flexibilities. You can choose a limited premium paying term of 8, 10 & 15 years. Also, there is an option to pay a lump sum through a single payment.

HDFC Life APP provides you a guarantee (between 101% -135%) of the premiums paid. This is why the choice of funds are predefined as per the Equity Backing Ratio and is not available for customised allocation by customers.

The premiums paid by you are eligible for tax benefits under Section 80CCC of the Income Tax Act, 1961.

Up to 1/3rd of the policy proceeds can be taken as tax-free commuted value, as prescribed under Sec 10 (10A) of the Income Tax Act, 1961.

You need to give a default option now, i.e., at the time of purchase of this policy. However, depending on your situation, you always have the option to change/ alter the annuity option at the time of maturity of the pension policy. HDFC Life will get in touch with you 3-6 months before the maturity of the policy and you can revisit your annuity choice options then.

In case you don’t revert to HDFC Life at that point of time, the default annuity options chosen earlier would be considered and your annuity payments would commence.

However, after commencement of annuity you won’t be able to make any further alterations.

There isn’t any provision of top-up premiums in this plan.

Pension from your employer is great. But with increase in the cost of living and increased life expectancy your employer funded pension might not be enough to pay for your entire expenses post retirement.

As a thumb rule your retirement fund should be at least 20 times your last year income before retirement. Hence, it is advisable that you invest in a separate retirement plan so that it supplements your employer-funded pension scheme.

This is the best part of your life. You have time on your side. So you can act now and ensure a smooth retirement.

Please remember that retirement is inevitable & early planning for retirement is really helpful. The earlier you start investing in your retirement, the bigger would be your retirement kitty, thanks to the power of compounding. You can actually build up a larger sum with a comparatively smaller investment if you start early.

So please think about this and act now.

Your funds will be invested into Equity and Debt instruments as per the Equity Backing Ratio defined by the company. This is to provide you with maximum returns from market upside, as well as protect your capital from any downfall.

HDFC Life APP provides you various options at vesting. You can choose between either of the two options

  • Extend the accumulation period within the same policy with same terms & conditions as the original policy, provided you are below 55 years of age
  • Utilise the entire proceeds to purchase a single premium deferred pension plan from HDFC Life

APP being a Pension plan does not have a life cover; however, the death benefit is higher of FV or 105% of the premiums paid till date.

You cannot avail any loan or make partial withdrawal from this plan.
