Income Plan from Zimele Guaranteed Pension

If you have attained the retirement age of at least 50 years old, you are entitled to receive a lump sum of up to Ksh.600,000 from your pension benefits, free of income tax.

The Income Plan enables you to structure a monthly income from your pension benefits.

How Does It Work?

This plan invests your pension income in secure financial assets like treasury bills and bonds, and pays you an income every month (or any other period you choose) from the returns.

First, you need to build your pension savings in the accumulation phase. You do this through the Zimele Guaranteed Pension Plan. Once you are at least 50 years, you can start the Guaranteed Income Plan with the savings you have accumulated.

The minimum period for the Income Plan is 10 years, and is automatically renewed if you don’t opt out. The benefit of this plan is that your pension savings (the principal amount) remains intact for the entire duration, what is paid to you is the interest earned. In simple terms, you will be eating the fruits, not the seeds. In the unfortunate event of a member’s death, the beneficiaries will get the full amount.

Members can top up their account, which increases your income in subsequent months.

1. Investment returns in the Balanced Fund are not guaranteed. Always remember that the value of your investment can rise or fall and that you may not get back the full amount you had invested, depending on prevailing market conditions. Past performance is not an indicator of future performance. The Balanced Fund should therefore be considered as a medium to long term investment.
2. The principal amount in the Money Market Fund is not subject to fluctuations during the period of investment. Interest in the Money Market Fund is earned on a monthly basis and will vary from time to time based on conditions prevailing in the money market.
