Drawdown Calculator

This calculator is designed to help those who are going to use flexible drawdown as a means to generate income in retirement rather than buying an annuity.

It looks at the sustainability of income at different investment rates, the impact of taking a one off withdrawal from your fund and shows what the likely residual value of your fund will be depending on how long you live.

What does the calculator show?

Enter in your current pension fund as the starting value, how much pension income you want and select when you want the income to start. Click "Calculate" and a graph will appear below, plotting the balance left in your drawdown account over time.

In an invested drawdown account your capital and the income it produces is at risk and can fall as well as rise, you may not get back all of your initial investment.

Excessive withdrawals will accelerate the decline of your drawdown account value, ultimately running it down to zero, after which further withdrawals will be impossible.
