Atal Pension Yojana not only guarantees you a pension but also provides tax benefits of up to Rs 1.5 lakh under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act. However, income taxpayers cannot avail the benefits of this scheme.

The process to receive pension:

After reaching the age of 60 years you can get a monthly pension of Rs 5000. If you want a pension of Rs 1000 per month then you will have to deposit only Rs 42 per month and your pension will start as soon as you turn 60.

Benefits up to Rs 10,000:

Under this scheme, both husband and wife can avail pension of up to Rs 10,000. If the husband dies before the age of 60, the wife will get a pension. If both the spouses die, the nominee will get the entire amount back.
