4) Enter lump sum payment or fund value of existing pension:
5) How much annual income would you like to draw in today's terms:


The calculations are based on the following assumptions :
Inflation rate of 2.5%
Stakeholder-implied charges of 1%
Annuity rate of 6.5%

These figures are designed to provide, in general terms, an indication of future pension benefits and do not constitute a formal personal illustration of future values. The figures are examples and are not guaranteed and they are not maximum or minimum amounts. What you will get back will depend on how your investments grow. Pension contributions are subject to strict limits set by the Inland Revenue.

All insurance companies use the same rates of growth for illustrations but their charges vary. They also use the same rates to illustrate how funds may be converted into pension income. For the purposes of the above calculations, investments have been assumed to grow at 5% per annum, with annual charges of 1% (as per Stakeholder). Annuity rates have been assumed at 6.5%.

Do not forget that inflation will reduce what you could buy in the future with the amounts shown. For the purposes of the above calculation, inflation has been assumed at 2.5% throughout the term of the investment. Your pension income will depend on how your actual investments grow and interest rates at the time you retire. The value of investments can go down as well as up and is not guaranteed. An investor may not get back the full amount invested.
