Who is this product for?

You don’t have to be an executive to take out an Executive Pension Plan. This plan is designed for employees and employers in small to medium-sized companies, who wish to save for their retirement.


The maximum that can be paid into an executive pension plan, between the employee and employer, depends on the employee’s earnings, service and any benefits from a previous employment. The maximum amount the employee can pay in depends on their age.

When you retire

On retirement, you can take a tax-free lump sum of either:

  • 25% of your fund, or,
  • based on salary and service, to a maximum of 150% of salary.


The maximum tax-free lump sum you can take is €200,000.

The remainder of your fund can then be invested in an Annuity or Approved (Minimum) Retirement Fund A(M)RF/ Approved Retirement Fund.
