Here's What Retirement Would Look Like 30 Years From Now

The current life expectancy in India is 69.42 years. It is expected to climb to 75 years , 30 years from now, thanks to the advancement in the medical industry. If a typical Indian retires at 60, that means the money available at retirement must last at least 15-20 years. At this time, many people have the question, where do they stand? How will retirement look like 30 years from now? The answers are right below!

1. Working After Retirement

Many people are opting to work after retirement due to inflation and the unpredictability of investment returns. However, not all of them will be focused on necessities, but rather on the convenience of working from home using mobile devices. However, it may be vital for the vast majority of retirees to continue working as long as possible to reduce the danger of living too long.

2. Moving to a Small Town

Managing expenses post-retirement is an important and big challenge. Moving away from major cities could help keep regular expenses low. Also, if someone owns property in metro cities by the time they retire, it may come in handy for generating better rental income. Smaller cities offer a slower pace of life, fewer amenities, and lesser pricing. All these factors will help in reducing and managing the expenses after retirement.

3. Rising Healthcare Expenses

Healthcare, like many other essentials of life, will continue to rise in price. That simply means that, as people become older, they may require greater social assistance for health care. Senior citizen health insurance policies are still available until the age of 85. However, the rising cost of premiums will serve as a deterrent. That might increase the dependency on government schemes.

4. More Use of Technology

Even today, one can use a retirement corpus calculator to find out how much money will be required to have a comfortable post-retirement life. These calculators calculate how much money needs to be invested for how many years. These technology-enabled interactions are going to increase in the future. As a result, many travel requirements would be purely recreational. You’ll be able to manage your investments, finances, withdrawals, and pensions all online.

5. Investing in High Risk-High Return Plans

It might be riskier to heavily invest in stocks, especially if one doesn’t have much knowledge about them. But the lure of high returns is pulling more and more people towards it.

This demand is being capitalized on by suppliers of pension plans and retirement savings solutions. Modern pension plans not only provide equity allocation, but also the opportunity to rebalance the asset allocation automatically.

Investment Option Time-Period Risk Return
Direct Equity NA High NA
Mutual Funds Lock-in period of 3 years Low-High Market Linked
National Pension Scheme 60 years Low-High Market Linked
Senior Citizens Saving Scheme 5 years Nil 8.7%

The above table gives a few investment options that are available for people to invest in based on the level of risk and returns. It is advisable to start the process of investment early and let the money compound itself to build a large retirement corpus.

With increasing economic volatility, it is best to let the money grow itself To achieve a financially secure retirement, begin investing the money in these programs as soon as possible. Get in touch with a professional to find the best suitable plan based on your needs.
