What should my pension target be?
The aim of this calculator is to give you an indication of how much you need to contribute to a pension and what you might get as a retirement income. You should aim to provide yourself with an income during retirement that’s worth 60% of your final salary. The calculator should not be regarded as personal advice.
What does the Moneyfarm Pension Calculation consider?
All figures take account of inflation and show the buying power of your pension in today’s money. This calculation assumes your salary will grow by 3% a year and that your investments will grow by an annualised 4%.This calculation assumes you will receive a state pension of £8,296 a year during retirement and that you will live to the age of 83.
If I follow the suggestions, will I reach my goal?
The figures are a guide and not guaranteed. Your final pension fund and the income available will depend on factors including the growth your fund achieves, contributions you make in future, charges, inflation, your retirement age, annuity rates at the time and the annuity options you choose.
