Retirement is one of the most important life events many of us will ever experience. After retirement the income stops but the expenses don't. The savings that we have today may not suffice to meet the various costs that will be incurred post retirement. Hence it becomes imperative for us to plan for retirement early as it helps compound the corpus many times by the time we retire. The plan is ideal for individuals who seek to plan for their retirement to get adequate corpus to fulfill all their post-retirement goals.
