It consists of calculating the required monthly/annual annuity by using the ‘Time-Value of Money’ concept and thereby attaining the amount to be invested till retirement so as to achieve the desired annuity post-retirement. The ‘Estate Planning’ deals with the collection of preparation tasks that serve to manage an individual’s asset base in the event of their in-capacitation or death, including the bequest of assets to heirs and the settlement of estate taxes.
