Bharti AXA Life Insurance Wonder Years Retirement Plan


Wonder Years Retirement Plan from Bharti Axa Life Insurance is a traditional pension plan where the policyholder can choose to participate in the bonus that is declared by the company. In this plan, the policyholder would pay premiums in the accumulation phase till the vesting date, i.e. the date from which he would like to receive pension or annuity. If he dies in the accumulation phase before the vesting date, i.e. before he starts to receive pension, then the nominee would receive 108% of the total premiums paid till date as death benefit.

The policyholder would have 2 options in the accumulation phase:

·         To choose Vesting at age 60, such that pension would start when he reaches 60 years of age but he would be required to pay at least Rs 12,000 p.a. as premium till then.

·         To pay for at least 10 years before starting pension. However the policyholder needs to be within 40-70 years of age to avail this option and pay at least Rs 20,000 p.a. as premium.


On maturity of the policy he would receive the Vesting Amount along with the Bonus that has been declared by the insurer. Then the policyholder has the following choice:

·         He can withdraw 1/3 of the vesting amount tax free and start receiving pension from the remaining 2/3 of the fund.

·         He may also choose to receive pension from any other insurer in the industry.
