Find out your likely retirement income

In a few easy steps, the Money Helper's pension calculator can give you an estimate of the income you'll get when you retire. Your forecast will include income from defined benefit and defined contribution pensions, and your State Pension.

When you get your results, you can alter your retirement age to see how that affects your income. You can also see how increased contributions or taking a smaller tax-free lump sum affect your yearly pension.
