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.


To get a sense of the lifetime drawdown payments you could receive at retirement, complete the information and click the Update Results button.
