Calculate your income on retirement

Retirees need an income of around 80% of their final salary if they are to maintain the same standard of living. However, their minimum pension income will only account for about 60% * of their final salary.

In the calculator below we will use this figure, as well as your desired income, as a basis to estimate how much more income you would need to achieve your desired level for retirement. For a detailed calculation that reflects your personal situation, we invite you to meet one of our advisors in-branch.
