If the subscriber is going to superannuate six months from now, the subscriber can submit his Withdrawal Form anytime after the generation of Claim ID, however the Withdrawal request will be processed only after completion of Superannuation age/ Date of Retirement (as per the CRA records).

In order to generate Claim ID for Withdrawal of NPS funds in case of Pre-mature Exit, the subscriber would have to contact the POP-SP for generation of Claim ID.

Subscriber can capture the online Withdrawal request six months in advance from the date of superannuation/ attaining the age of 60. Subscriber can submit the request by logging into the CRA website (www.cra-nsdl.com) under the menu ‘Exit Withdrawal Request’).

In case of Pre-mature Exit, 100% is not allowed. However, in case of Superannuation, a subscriber can claim 100% Withdrawal if the total accumulated corpus is less than Rs. 2,00,000 at the time of Superannuation/attaining age of 60 years.

Nominee(s) registered in the CRA system can submit the Withdrawal request to CRA through the subscriber’s associated POP/POP-SP (through the associated Corporate in case of Corporate model subscribers). If the Nominee was not registered with CRA, legal heir(s) can submit the Withdrawal request.

Withdrawal form needs to be submitted by all the nominees registered in CRA system. In case the nominee is a minor, Withdrawal form has to be submitted by the guardian along with the birth certificate of the minor.

The Withdrawal proceeds are credited electronically to the bank account of the subscriber or claimant (as per the bank details provided in the Withdrawal form).

No, Withdrawal proceeds are credited electronically to the bank account of the subscriber or the claimant, as the case maybe. It is necessary for the subscriber /claimant to have a bank account.

Following communications are sent to the subscribers during the Withdrawal process:
• E-mail, letter and SMS alert to NPS subscribers at the time of generation of Claim ID
• E-mail & letter is sent to the claimant for any discrepancy observed
• At the time of acceptance of request, Transaction Statement is sent to the subscriber through email
• E-mail to subscriber intimating the Fund Transfer Details of the credit remitted to claimant/ASP bank account

The subscriber can either send an email to info.cra@nsdl.co.in or npsclaimassist@nsdl.co.in case of any query pertaining to withdrawal or may get in touch with his/her associated POP/Corporate. Withdrawal related guidelines are also available on the PFRDA and CRA website.

Subscribers exiting NPS on account of Superannuation can opt for deferring the Withdrawal of their lumpsum share (maximum 60%) to a maximum period of 10 years or 70 years of age (whichever is earlier).

If a subscriber discontinues his/her investments under the scheme and the minimum contributions are not made as stipulated, the account will be frozen and can be reactivated only by paying the penalty alongwith the minimum contribution.
However, if a subscriber wishes to exit from NPS before attaining the age of 60, he/she can withdraw upto 20% of the sum accumulated till that point of time. The subscriber has to buy annuity with the rest of the money. The commencement of the annuity depends on the annuity plan / scheme offered by the ASPs.

An annuity is a financial instrument which provides for a regular payment of a certain amount of money on monthly/quarterly/annual basis for the chosen period for a given purchase price or pension wealth. In simple terms it is a financial instrument which offers monthly/quarterly/annual pension at a specified rate for the period you chose.

In the context of NPS, Annuity refers to the monthly sum received by the subscriber from the Annuity Service Provider (ASP). A percentage of the pension wealth as decided by the subscribers (minimum 40% & 80% is to be invested with ASP in case Withdrawal is due to Superannuation & Pre-mature Exit respectively) is utilized for purchase of Annuity from the ASP.

Indian Life Insurance companies which are licensed by Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) are empanelled by PFRDA to act as Annuity Service Provider’s to provide annuity services to the subscribers of NPS.

As per PFRDA Exit Rules, subscribers exiting NPS on account of Superannuation or Pre-mature Exit can defer purchase of Annuity (minimum 40% & 80% is to be invested with ASP in case Withdrawal is due to Superannuation & Pre-mature Exit respectively) for a maximum period of 3 years.

The mode and manner of payment of amount (if any available) will depend on the type of annuity plan / scheme selected by the subscriber while buying the annuity.

The units available in the Tier II account of the NPS subscriber who has submitted a Withdrawal request for Tier I at CRA (provided the request stands approved from the concerned authority) are redeemed alongwith the Tier I balance. The funds redeemed are transferred to the account provided by the subscriber in the Withdrawal form.

In order to withdraw from Tier II account, the subscriber needs to submit a duly filled UOS-S12 form to the associated POP-SP. If the request is entered and authorised in CRA system by the POP/POPSP before 11:45 PM, then it goes for same day's processing, or else it goes for the next business day. The redemption amount may vary due to the variation of NAV. Units are redeemed based on the NAV declared at the end of the processing day. On T+3 working days, (T being the date of processing) the funds are transferred from the Trustee Bank to subscriber's bank account as registered in the CRA system.
