Things to know

  • A guide, not a guarantee
    Our annuity calculator is here to give you an idea of how much your income could be. It’s not a guaranteed quote and it’s not personalised advice. It’s to help you decide whether a pension annuity aligns with your retirement goals – if it does, get in touch and speak with one of our annuity experts. 
  • Pensions from any provider
    Our annuity calculator can give you an estimate so long as you have at least one pension. Your pension, or pensions, can be with any provider, but our calculator can’t include defined benefit pensions
  • How our calculator calculates
    Our calculator uses a set of assumptions. If you decide to buy a pension annuity and personalise it, some of these assumptions might not apply to you.

    Our calculator works by assuming:
    - you’ll take 25% of your pension fund as a tax-free lump sum before buying your annuity
    - the policy will be set up to pay an income to you alone and will not pay an income to anyone else after you die
    - your income will be paid monthly and is set at a fixed amount
    - no matter what happens, your annuity will be guaranteed to pay out for a minimum of 1 year
    - you’re in good health

Please note, the income you get from an annuity counts towards your taxable income.
