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.

In order to withdraw from Tier II account, the Subscriber needs to submit a duly filled UOS-S12 to the associated POP-SP. On T+3 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 and the onus of tax payment on the withdrawal lies with the Subscriber since NPS system does not deduct any tax at source.

The units available in the Tier II account of the NPS Subscriber (for Subscriber holding a Tier II account) 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 bank account provided by the Subscriber in the Withdrawal form.

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).

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.
