Pensions are normally defined by law, esp. with respect to social security and retirement benefits and other mandatory contributions imposed on employees by governments.

It is different from a separation or retirement fund whose computation is based on the number of years of service of the employee.

Of course. an employee's separation benefit can be received like a pension, when the employee opts to receive them in installment, rather than as a lumpsum amount.

In the absence of laws that provide guidelines on the matter, a pension can be designed using the life insurance models.

Under the life insurance model, a pension is seen as a replacement income when the person has retired. As such, one can be said to have adequate pension when the previous employment income is continously received by a retired employee after retirement until death.

The critical question is: how do you calculate the aggregate amount needed and its cost?

The aggregate amount can be computed as follows:

LAST MONTHLY Salary X 12 months X expected no. of years to live after retirement

(Example: US $ 2,000 X 12 X 10 years = US $ 240,000.00)

The US $ 240,000.00 is the aggregate amount that will be targetted. In insurance language, this becomes the FACE VALUE of the employee's insurance that will have to mature when the employee retires. With this amount, even without considering its annual interest earned, the employee will be guaranteed a monthly income of US $ 2,000.00 every month for TEN years. With interest considered, this fund can even extend the life of the pension to another year or two.

Now, what is the cost?

The cost of this pension fund (US $ 240,000.00) in insurance lingo is equivalent to the monthly INSURANCE PREMIUM that the insurance company will ask you to pay.

If the PENSION PLAN or program is "NOT insurance-based", then this amount will have to be saved (with interests factored) by the employee and/ or the company under a "trust fund". This may be "contributory or non-contributory" in nature, depending on the company's policy.

When a company does not have money, the insurance based model is best. The problem is whether the company is willing to buy a life insurance benefit of such a huge face value for its employees? The normal corporate insurance plans for employees are "group term life", whose premium cost is less than half of full life plans.

The problem with term insurance is: it has no CASH VALUE that can mature when the employee retires.

Best wishes.

Hello Manish,
Hope my below explanation may help you.
1> Pensionable Salary stands for Average Basic +D.A. salary of last 60 Months
2> Pensionable Years are the number of years one has contributed in Pension (Minimum 10 Years is requirement)
3> Formula for calculating pension is ( Pensionable Salary x Pensionable Years / 70 )
Now assuming in your case your Pensionable Salary is 25,000/- and Pensionable Years are 10
The amount that you will earn as Pension is
25,000 x 10 / 70 = Rs. 3,571/-

There are some pension calculators and retirement calculators available to calculate your monthly pension amount under EPS and to calculate how much money you need to save by retirement. These calculators make the whole your pension calculation very easy. You can also know the pension withdrawal amount.

Government has increased the minimum pension amount in the Employee Pension Scheme. Now employees of organized sector will get minimum rupees 1000 per month. Earlier employee used to get at least 500 rupees pension monthly. By investing in NPS (National Pension Scheme) you can save your income tax

But very few people are aware about this pension facility for every employee. They don’t have an idea that how much pension they will get after the retirement. To know more about features of Employee Pension Scheme and pension calculation click here

Thanks & Regards
