Tax rules are dependent on your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. The figures presented should not be seen as any form of advice. You should seek appropriate guidance to fully understand your options.

The calculations have been verified by a third party actuary as delivering reasonable outputs given the stated purpose of the calculator.

We will continue to update the 7IM Pension Calculator with the aim of ensuring the calculations are based on current data/numbers concerning inflation rates, pension legislation etc. This helps us to provide you with as clear a picture as we can.

7IM uses Technical Connection, a tax specialist business (engaged by financial planners and financial institutions), to create the underlying calculations of the 7IM Pension Calculator.

Gross Pension Contributions

The Gross Pension Contributions are assumed to continue until your retirement. We increase these contributions by 2% per annum.

Money Purchase (Defined Contribution)

We have not taken account of any restriction that may be required as a result of triggering the Money Purchase Annual Allowance rules or tapering of the Annual Allowance in effect from April 2016.


We assume an annuity income of 4% of the total value of the pension. Note there are other options available at retirement, please speak to us further about your requirements.

Pension Lump Sum

We have enabled you to take up to 25% as a tax free lump sum.

Lifetime Allowance

The 7IM Pension Calculator does not take into consideration the Standard Pension Lifetime Allowance which should your fund exceed it, may affect you.


The 7IM Pension Calculator assumes 1% annual charges on your pension value until retirement. Your actual circumstances and charges may differ.

State Pension

We assume you are entitled to and will receive a full single tier state pension at state pension retirement age. We assume your State Pension will increase in line with earnings (i.e. Consumer Price Index (CPI) +1%). This does not include any additional state pension you may be entitled to.

Investment Growth

We assume your investment will grow at 5% per annum. As with all Investments they can go up as well as down.


We assume a default inflation rate of 2%. This is applied when calculating the value of your pension pot at your chosen retirement age. All figures are shown in “Today's Money”.
