Life after retirement should be income proof so that you have access to money and lead a life that is stress. In short, it is essential to have a retirement plan to secure your income at a time when you need to spend prudently on your life.

For example, an individual who enjoys travelling may have plans to visit and explore some of their favourite destinations post-retirement. For life gives you a chance to do what you like- when you have time for it- necessarily after you retire from your job. There is also a visible trend of people taking voluntary retirement to invest time in a child’s education or do it purposefully to fulfil their set personal goals.

Whatever be the reason, the ultimate objective should be to secure your retirement. One way of doing this is to maintain the steady flow of monthly income through an income-benefit term plan.

Before we begin discussion on some of the best solutions for income management post-retirement, let us consider few examples of people who retired early and decided to travel the world.

She visited almost everywhere from Australia to Oslo, and she managed her travel expenses through smart saving and investment, states a media report about her passion.

Tips and Tricks for a Better Life:

- Earn, Earn and Earn. While you are doing a job, it is good to be ambitious and turn your income goals into maximum personal profits.

- Another workable option is an investment in a term plan. While such an insurance plan gives you income protection against death, it also means an income bonus for your family. A term plan ensures that your family receives a lump sum amount (the total sum insured + monthly income) in case of the unfortunate death of the insured. One only needs to pay an annual premium X amount to get long-term monetary benefits like term insurance of Rs 1 crore.
