Anyone over the age of 18 who has the capacity to act can participate in the system, there is no requirement to be affiliated with any social security institution or to work. It is a system based on voluntary participation. The aim of the system is to encourage people to save money to meet their cash needs during their working life, to encourage them to make long-term savings, and to ensure that they can maintain their income level during their active working period as well during retirement.
How Much Contribution Should Be Paid for an Individual Pension Plan?
Considering your current income status and your expectations for the retirement period, you can determine the amount of contribution you want to invest, not less than the plan contribution amount defined in the plan you choose. You can deposit the amount of contribution you have determined on a monthly, quarterly, 6-monthly and annual basis. In order to have higher savings in your retirement period, you can set a contribution rate of 5% to 15% of your current income, and keep your savings at high levels by paying your contributions regularly, making additional payments in interim periods, increasing your contribution amount and monitoring your fund returns.
