Pension Pot Calculator

How much will your pension be worth at retirement?

It’s a big question that many people ask because they need to know how much pension they’ll receive to plan effectively for their later years, but it’s not always easy to work out, especially if you have a defined contribution pension and are some years from retirement.

Our retirement calculator will provide you with a pension forecast, revealing the value of your pension pot at your desired retirement age based on any current retirement savings, how much you’re planning to contribute and compound growth of varying degrees between now and your retirement.

After the pension calculations, we’ll also show you how long that pension pot could last if you decide to fund your retirement through income drawdown, making a pension withdrawal of a fixed amount every month.

There are five major factors to consider when calculating how much your pension will be worth. These are:

  • Your age now
    The earlier you start saving into a pension the better
  • Your chosen retirement age
    The youngest age most people can access their pension is age 55, but not everyone can afford to retire this early
  • How much is already in your pension
    Any existing savings will provide a base for future growth
  • The monthly pension contributions you’ll be making
    Don’t forget employer contributions, if appropriate
  • The growth rate you’re expecting from your investments
    Our calculator offers a pension forecast based on your pot growing by 2%, 4% and 6% between now and retirement. With income drawdown your pension pot stays invested after you start taking income, so we’ve also modelled the same three growth rates for your pension fund post-retirement.

How Much Do I Need to Retire?

Many people wonder how much they need in their pension to retire, but the answer isn’t simple because it will depend on you as a person.

For instance, most pensioners today have repaid their mortgages long before retirement. However, as people get mortgages later in life and with longer terms, future retirees could be repaying mortgages even after they’ve stopped working. That will need to be factored in when it comes to calculating how much pension income you’ll need.

Are you planning on taking lots of holidays now you’ve retired? What about paying for hobbies now you’ve got more free time?

Other factors to consider are any children and grandchildren you might have. Will you have to support any dependants, perhaps paying for higher educational costs?

Whatever your dreams, aspirations and goals for our retirement, unfortunately many of us simply aren’t saving enough into pensions to provide the comfortable retirement we deserve and so might walk away from the Pension Calculator a bit shocked!

While the pension calculator offers you a good starting point when it comes to working out how big your pension could be and how long it might last, it’s always better to get expert help and advice on your pension.

At Drewberry we’re qualified to see you through the entire pensions advice process, from where to invest your pension savings to drawing on your fund at retirement.
