Terms of use

Terms & conditions

The Contribution Calculator is for general guidance only. By using the Contribution Calculator, you are agreeing to the points and terms of use set out below.

  • Your pensionable earnings: Your basic salary at the date you join the ITV DC Plan and on 1 April each year after that.
  • Your contribution rate: You can contribute from 3% to 100% of your pensionable earnings in 1% increments. Contributions up to 6% are called core contributions; contributions above 6% are called extra contributions. You get full tax relief on all your contributions up to certain limits.
  • Cost and contributions: The net cost to you, your employer’s contributions and the amount invested towards your ITV DC savings (including tax relief) each month are all estimates. These estimates are based on the pensionable earnings you enter, tax rates for 2021/22, your tax relief, the contribution rate you’ve chosen, and any savings you may make by participating in the ITV DC Plan through salary sacrifice. If you participate in the ITV DC Plan through salary sacrifice, your salary will be reduced by the amount of your contributions and these contributions will be paid by your employer to the ITV DC Plan. The estimates are rounded up to the nearest £1.
  • Plan and HMRC allowances: The Contribution Calculator doesn’t take into account ITV DC Plan and HMRC allowances which may apply depending on your circumstances and the benefits you build up. Remember that tax relief on your contributions depends on your individual circumstances, current tax rates, and the annual allowance for contributions (the standard annual allowance for the 2021/22 tax year is £40,000), all of which may change in the future.
  • Getting advice: You’re responsible for carrying out your own investigations before deciding how much to contribute; you should take impartial financial advice if you’re not sure what to do or want specific advice about your personal circumstances. You should also bear in mind that there are many issues to consider when deciding how to save for retirement, and the figures provided by the Contribution Calculator should only be one aspect of that consideration.
  • Your data: You should make sure that your pensionable earnings are accurate; by providing this information, you consent to Willis Towers Watson Limited using this data to estimate the figures in the Contribution Calculator.
