We all retire one day. It is said post-retirement years are the golden period in everyone’s life. But yes, only if you plan properly for it.

Have you ever wondered “how much money you need as Retirement corpus to survive post-retirement period?”

Just an illustration below

Current Monthly expenses 35000 35000 35000 35000 35000
Current annual expenses 420000 420000 420000 420000 420000
Current age 30 35 40 45 50
Retirement age 60 60 60 60 60
No. of yrs to retirement 30 25 20 15 10
Inflation 8.50% 8.50% 8.50% 8.50% 8.50%
Annual expenese @ retirement Rs. 48,54,466 Rs. 32,28,440 Rs. 21,47,059 Rs. 14,27,892 Rs. 9,49,613
Rate of return post-retirement 9% 9% 9% 9% 9%
Real rate of return post-retirement 0.46% 0.46% 0.46% 0.46% 0.46%
Life expectancy 80 80 80 80 80
No. of yrs post-retirement 20 20 20 20 20
Retirement corpus required to fund post-retirement expenses Rs. 9,29,72,569 Rs. 6,18,30,981 Rs. 4,11,20,411 Rs. 2,73,46,941 Rs. 1,81,86,958

It is never too late to save for retirement. I want to change this and say –It is never too early to save for retirement“.

The earlier you achieve the retirement corpus, the earlier you can retire. Retirement doesn’t mean you will stop working – but you can stop working for MONEY. May be you can work on something you are passionate about and could not pursue due to hectic corporate life.
