The essentials

The totally flexible solution to top up your retirement pension

You pay into the BCGE a capital sum of your choice. Based on this capital deposit, you are paid an annuity pension for the remainder of your life. The amount of the annuity pension is calculated based on the initial capital and your life expectancy. In this way the annuity meets your requirements by topping up your compulsory benefits.

An annuity gives you a tax benefit

Only 40% of the annuity is taxable. This is quite a considerable tax benefit.
Annuity choices and variants
You are free to choose the beneficiary in the event of death, assuming you have chosen the "restitution to heirs" option.
The annuity can be paid to one or two people.
