National Pension System (NPS) or the NPS is a much talked about investment product for retirement. The NPS allows you to make regular contributions to accumulate a corpus at the time of retirement. This corpus can then be partially withdrawn and the remaining has to be reinvested in annuities for a regular pension-style income post retirement.

Here are some key points about NPS:

★NPS was first launched in 2004 for government employees and was later opened to everyone in 2009.
★NPS is similar to mutual funds, where investors pool their money together and hand it over to a fund manager to manage it professionally and deliver returns.
★There are two choices available in NPS: active choice and auto choice. Individuals can choose the option that suits their investment preferences.
★Investing in NPS offers tax benefits, making it an attractive option for retirement planning.
★NPS is also compared to other retirement investment options like mutual funds and Public Provident Fund (PPF).
★NPS has two tiers: Tier 1 and Tier 2. Tier 1 is a mandatory account for retirement savings, while Tier 2 is a voluntary account with more flexibility in withdrawals.
