The need for a regular and fixed income after retirement is something most individuals look forward to. In order to meet that, one invests in different investments such as mutual funds, stocks, bonds etc to create wealth for retirement. In addition, there are pension plans in which one can keep contributing until retirement and then start receiving a regular income. Atal Pension Yojana (APY), a guaranteed pension scheme of Government of India and administered by The Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) is one such pension plan.

APY comes with guaranteed monthly pension and thus can provide some basic financial security to the individuals. As the maximum monthly pension is capped at Rs 5000, both spouses can contribute and set a monthly pension of Rs 10,000 for them. One needs to keep contributing ( only from a savings account) regularly till age 60 and, thereafter, a fixed amount of monthly pension will begin.

But, there are two major constraints in APY:

  • The maximum monthly pension is capped at Rs 5,000
  • Only those who are between 18 and 40 years of age
