Unit Linked Pension Plans - ULPPs - 5 Major Points

Unit Linked Pension Plans - ULPPs

(1)  Insurance companies offer unit linked pension plans, which are market linked products, specifically designed for investors looking for retirement planning products.

(2)   Investors have a choice about the asset allocation of the fund they invest in. It can be 100% equity, 100% debt, or / some sort of a mix of the two--depending on their risk profile.

(3)  Switching is also permitted in ULPP, thus allowing investors to change their fund-profile with life cycle changes. Young investors may start with 100% equity and gradually switch to debt as they near retirement.


(4)  When investors retire, they can withdraw one third of the accumulated corpus, tax-free. The balance amount must be used to buy an annuity plan, which will be the source of regular but fully taxable pension.

(5)  Pension plans are meant to be long term products. Premature exit from these plans is generally discouraged. Investors can withdraw 33% of the corpus at maturity.
