Argus Retirement Drawdown Calculator
When you reach retirement, you can choose to either purchase an annuity or to make withdrawals from your pension account.
If you are participating in a Bermuda registered plan, withdrawal payments will be made over your lifetime and the maximum
withdrawal rate will be determined by the Pension Commission.
The Argus Retirement Calculator illustrates the estimated drawdown payments based on your account balance, commencement age and
assumed rates of return. In the event of your death, the account balance will be payable to your beneficiary.
