Pension Charges

The Pension Charges calculator enables you to compare the charging structure of different plans.

Pension charges are an important factor to be taken into account when considering transferring from one plan to another.

This can sometimes be difficult if the fund projections for each plan assume different growth rates.


General details of the arrangement are input, such as when the plan is to start, the end date, and contributions to be paid.

Then specific details of each plan are input e.g. fund/transfer value, growth rate, the initial & ongoing charges and whether these will increase.


The calculator will provide an indication of;

  • Expected final fund values based upon the charges & growth rate for each plan (to check against any projection obtained), &
  • Final values assuming a same growth rate to enable a comparison.

Final values are also shown in bar chart format.
