PM Insurance & Pension Schemes – A Ready Referencer



PM Insurance & Pension Schemes 
A Ready Referencer

Death is the one term which makes everyone scary and the same fear plays the vital role in availing the insurance on our lives. Death is certain to happen, how many of us think about what happens to our family after our death? The insurance provides the solution for this question. It is obvious that the human life can’t be replaced with the monetary returns, but still, running a family after losing someone in our family is not an easy thing. These monetary returns in the form of Insurance claims will be handy at those times. The below quote holds good to explain about insurance in a nut-shell:

“It's not for you - it's for those you care most about!”

I am sure almost all of you are aware about the recently launched Prime Minster’s Insurance & Pension schemes.  I am just trying to explain the procedures to apply for these insurance & pension schemes in a nut-shell. I will be posting about three different schemes launched by the Government:

1.  Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana (LIFE INSURANCE)
2.  Pradan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana (ACCIDENT INSURANCE) &
3. Atal Pension Yojana (PENSION SCHEME)

How to Apply?

We can apply only through off-line mode. To my knowledge, Banks are not offering online application for this Pension scheme.

Off-Line Application (By Submitting Application form in Bank)


2. Fill in the form with the necessary details. Since we already have the account with our banker, this form has very minimal entries to be filled in. It wont take more than 15 minutes to fill this form.

3. Don’t forget to fill the Aadhar Number if you have one.

4. No need to have / affix Photograph in the application form.

5. Submit the duly filled in application form to your banker. They will take care of the rest. Within a week’s time the scheme will be activated.

Key Points to note:

1.The contribution to be made every month.

2. Contributions should be made till 60 years of age.

3. Upon the completion of 60 years, we will have to submit the request to the our bank (Where we opted for this scheme) for drawing the guaranteed monthly pension.

4. One can open only one APY account

5. It should be operated through savings bank a/c only. If the members have more than one savings a/c, he can choose any one savings a/c of his choice.

6. In case of the death of the subscriber after 60 years of age, pension would be available to the spouse and on the death of both of them (subscriber and spouse), the pension corpus would be returned to his nominee.

Once it is done, we will receive an acknowledgement from the bank for all the 3 schemes like the one below: 



For Clarifications and doubts regarding any of the above mentioned 3 schemes, we can contact the toll-free numbers below: 

Pan India toll-free no: 1800110001 / 18001801111
Toll-Free number for TamilNadu: 18004254415

Conclusion:

It’s a wonderful initiative and we should make use of these schemes. For a subsidized premium, they offer reasonable return to land the future in safe hands. Of the 3 above, I personally feel PENSION YOJANA is the best one. 

Voluntary savings for the future has become a history these days. We got used to spend a lot more than what we earn. This pension scheme will surely help those who are working in unorganized sector. They face more risk than those working in organized sector.  Requesting you all to make use of this opportunity and save for the future.  Small drops maketh an ocean, similarly, these small contributions will turn out to be a lumpsum money in the future.

This post is just my observation of the PM Insurance & Pension schemes based on my understanding of the rules prescribed in the Govt website. Feel free to mail me at innovativedeepak87@gmail.com, if you feel that the content is being misinterpreted.  

I should thank my friends Suren Kumar, Pavithra & Rajiv for sharing the information and clarifying my doubts while drafting this blog post. Thanks so much. Thanks to you all for your patience in reading this post.
Let’s make a better tomorrow.
