FAQs

  • How much money do I need to retire?

    The amount of money needed for retirement will be different for everybody. While some people will want to travel and spoil their grandkids, others will not. The best rule of thumb is to add up expected retirement income – social security, pensions, distributions from individual retirement accounts, investments, etc. – and subtract all expected retirement expenses – housing, utilities, taxes, insurance, food, clothes, etc. – to see how much of this will be needed after retirement. The final answer, of course, will be based on anticipated life expectancy.

  • What happens to a retirement fund if I die before withdrawing the money?

    If you have named a beneficiary, the beneficiary will inherit the accounts. If you have not named a beneficiary, the accounts will become part of your estate.

  • What age is considered early retirement?

    Retirement before the age of 62 is usually considered early retirement. This would generally depend on the officially recognized retirement age in your country .

  • Is it possible to start retirement planning too early?

    No. It is never too early to start planning – and saving – for retirement. The sooner you begin to save for your retirement the better. Because of the power of compounding to grow a wisely invested portfolio, smaller amounts of money invested now will yield much bigger nest-eggs than larger amounts invested closer to retirement age.

  • Is a spouse automatically the beneficiary of a retirement account owned by the other spouse?

    Not necessarily. This would depend on the level of legacy and estate planning you have done. We would urge you to seek the appropriate financial advice from a trained and qualified wills and estate planning professional

  • What is the average cost of health insurance for a retiree?

    Retirees under the age of 65 could pay as much as $6,000 to $7,000 per year for health insurance. The amount will vary based on a number of factors, such as the place the retiree lives in, whether or not there are any pre-existing conditions, and if an employer-based health plan is covering any of the cost.

  • How much of my retirement account should be liquid cash?

    You never want to be fully-vested in equities or long-term bonds. It’s a good idea to have free cash in to take advantage of market downturns. Smart investors commonly have 25% or more of their portfolio in cash. Many retirement accounts offer money market funds that can hold this cash temporarily and earn enough interest to offset inflation.

  • Can my spouse and I both contribute to the same retirement account?

    Yes, do you not need to each establish a separate account.

  • How old do I have to be to apply for this policy?

    The policy owner must be aged between 18 to 74 years to apply for this policy.

  • What is the minimum premium amount that can be paid per month?

    USD 750, GBP 500 GBP or EUR 600

  • Do I have to pay my premiums every month?

    Premiums can be paid monthly, quarterly, half yearly or yearly.
