The life cycle strategy automatically divides the participant's financial resources into individual participating funds depending on the number of years remaining until retirement. As the retirement age draws nearer, the representation of the conservative participating fund increases in all life cycle strategies.
The savings strategy recommended by KB CS is always based on the needs and requirements of the participant.
KB Penzijní společnost offers three life cycle strategies:
Growth life cycle strategy
Balanced life cycle strategy
Conservative life cycle strategy
The participant can also select an individual savings strategy and control the representation of individual participating funds individually.
In 2015 all changes of savings strategies in KB PS are free of charge.
Options of Supplementary Pension Savings:
Early pension is the legal option to utilize regular contributions from supplementary pension savings (SPS). Early pension allows SPS clients to retire sooner and under more advantageous conditions than the early pension option offered by the state.
This represents a regular payment provided to the client from his/her saved resources at the pension company, for up to 5 years before reaching their pension age (the age of women is computed identically as the age of men with the same date of birth).
Medical insurance is covered by the state during the whole early retirement. The duration of the early retirement is a so-called excluded period, i.e., it does not reduce the personal base of assessment used to calculate the state pension.
Pension insurance coverage
Clients have the exclusive option of insuring for the inability to pay the regular contributions due to illness, loss of employment or permanent disability. The insurance company will pay contributions to the client's pension account on behalf of the client up to the amount of CZK 15,000 per month.
