Important information

  • The figures are for illustrative purposes only and are not guaranteed.
  • The figures assume 5% growth each year. The value of your fund can go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount you put in.
  • The figures assume annual management charges of 1% each year. Your charges may differ. Charges can vary in the future and may be higher than they are now.
  • The calculator does not take inflation into account which means that the purchasing power of your fund value will be reduced in the future.
  • The calculator does not take into account annual or lifetime allowances. Please read Important information about pensions allowances as the Government can change these allowances from time to time.
  • The tax savings are an estimate based on your chosen tax band. The tax you pay depends on your individual circumstances. Tax rules may change in the future.
