Fixed Deposit for Retirement Fund

As famous saying goes, ‘slow and steady wins the race’; for those of us who started investing early and chose fixed deposits (FD). We can enjoy our retirement and relax with our financial planning in place.

MEDICAL ISSUES

It is safe to say that old age comes with the uncertainty of medical health. Your FD can take care of such healthcare-related expenses.

REGULAR INCOME

The returns from your FDs create a steady source of monthly income after retirement from the interest income itself.

TRAVEL EXPENSES

Now is the time to tick off all the boxes on your bucket list, visit places you always wanted to and perhaps go on to the pilgrimage too.

GIFTING

As a grandparent, you would always want to buy gifts for your grandchildren without depending on someone else. Again, interest coming from your FD can take care of these expenses.

EMERGENCY FUND

While the interest income takes care of the monthly expenses, your principle is intact that you can withdraw anytime should there be a need.
