I am a working class man and have started SIP in following funds from the last 6 months. Can invest till my retirement i.e. for the next 23 years period.

My total monthly SIP is of Rs 22,000, I can increase Rs 500 in each fund (i.e. 15% step up) every year based on my salary. For the next 13-15 years I can take high risk out of 23 years. My other investments are PF (21600(employer) + 21600(employee)) yearly and can start Rs 50,000 yearly in NPS for tax saving.

Looking for a combined corpus of 8-10 crore till retirement for my child's education (1 year old) and for my retirement savings, Can I achieve this with my SIP and other investments?

Kindly guide /provide your expert opinion whether any of my funds are overlapping or needs to be discontinued or any new funds needs to be added to meet my target corpus.

Funds:
1. Mirae Asset Global Electric & Autonomous Vehicles ETFs FundofFund (Direct Growth) - Rs 1,000 -Active
2. canara Robeco Bluechip Equity Fund (Direct Growth-Large Cap) - Rs 3,000 -Active
3. ICICI Prudential US Bluechip Equity Fund (Direct Growth-Sectoral/Thematic) - Rs 3,000 -Active
4. PGIM India Flexi Cap Fund (Direct Growth) - Rs 3,000 -Active

8. Quant Tax Plan (Direct Growth-ELSS) - Rs 3,000 -Active
9. Axis Long Term Equity Fund (Direct Growth-ELSS) - Rs 3,000 -Paused

As part of a couple in our early 30s, along with our elderly parents, we have a combined annual income of Rs 1.08 crores. How can we collectively plan for both our retirement and the financial well-being of our parents in the long run?
Ans: Balancing your financial needs and that of your parents, while planning for retirement, requires a comprehensive strategy. Here's a roadmap to get you started:

1. Understand your financial situation:

Gather information about:

• Income: List down your combined annual income (Rs 1.08 crore) and any other sources of income like rental income or investments.
• Expenses: Track your monthly expenses for a few months to understand your spending habits.
• Debts: List down any outstanding debts like mortgages, car loans, etc., including your parents' debts if applicable.
• Retirement benefits: Check your eligibility and potential benefits from social security or employer-sponsored retirement plans.
• Parents' needs: Estimate your parents' current and future financial needs, including healthcare costs.

2. Set retirement goals:

• Desired retirement age: Decide when you and your partner wish to retire.
• Desired lifestyle: Determine the lifestyle you envision in retirement, considering travel, hobbies, and potential healthcare needs.
• Financial goals: Based on your desired lifestyle and life expectancy, calculate the estimated corpus (total sum) required for your retirement. Consider inflation while making these calculations.

3. Create a financial plan:

• Debt management: Prioritise paying off high-interest debts to free up future income for savings and investments.
• Budgeting: Create a budget that allocates funds for essential expenses, savings, and debt repayments. You can involve your parents in creating a budget for their expenses as well.
• Savings and investments: Explore various investment options like mutual funds, PPF (Public Provident Fund), or NPS (National Pension Scheme) based on your risk tolerance and investment horizon. Utilize tax-advantaged retirement accounts like 401(k)s or IRAs if available to you.
• Healthcare planning: Consider health insurance plans for yourselves and your parents to manage potential medical costs in the future.

4. Open communication and support:

• Discuss openly: Have open and honest conversations with your partner and parents about your financial situation, goals, and expectations. This fosters transparency and builds trust within the family.
• Seek professional guidance: Consulting a financial advisor can help you create a personalized plan considering your specific financial situation and retirement goals. They can also guide you on investment strategies and risk management.

Additional considerations:

• Government schemes: Explore government schemes for senior citizens like the Senior Citizen Savings Scheme (SCSS) or the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY) that may benefit your parents.
• Downsizing: Consider downsizing your living situation or exploring alternative housing options in retirement to potentially reduce living expenses.
• Part-time work: If feasible, consider continuing part-time work in retirement to supplement your income and maintain an active lifestyle.

Remember, this is a general framework, and it's crucial to tailor it to your specific circumstances. Consulting a financial advisor can provide personalised guidance and ensure your financial plan considers all the complexities involved.
