Summary of rbs pension plan
Summary of RBS Pension Plan

  • Career Average Plan:

    • - Each year you accrue (per month) a part of your pension over a part of your salary in that year;

    • - As a result, your total pension to be accrued is a sum of the annually accrued pension over the years during which you were employed by RBS. So, your pension is indirectly derived from your average salary.

  • Indexation over the accrued rights of the participants is conditional. The percentage depends a.o. on the Fund’s financial position. Each year the Board decides on the indexation percentage to be granted (annually as at 1st April). More information canb e found in statement of contingency and indexation label.

Retirement Pension (RP): the Key Features of Your Plan in 60 Seconds…

Pensionable salary: See also description in pension plan regulations: 12 times fixed gross monthly salary, holiday allowance, annual bonus plus any salary supplements such as the 4.2% regulation

AOW offset: threshold amount over which you do not accrue pension. In your pension plan it has been taken in to account that you receive a state benefit (AOW) as of 65 years. That is why you do not accrue pension over your entire salary but over the Pensionable salary -/- AOW(offset).As from 1 January, 2011 the AOW offset is €11,803 (annually adjusted).

Each year that you accrue pension with RBS you accrue 2.15% over yourpension base (PB) = pensionable salary -/- AOW offset.

So 40 years x 2.15% of the PB = 86% of the “average PB”.

Example: PB = € 35,000 start of employment.

40 years x 2.15% x 35,000 = € 30,100

(Lifelong gross pension benefit as from 65 years)

  • Waiver of premium in the event of occupational disability

  • Waiver of premium during term of occupational disability (AO),

  • Waiver of premium until ultimately 65 years (or earlier in the event of recovery)

    on basis of 75% of the salary applicable at the time the waiver of premium is granted

    - Waiver of premium always in proportion to degree of AO, so WIA compliant!

Example of participant employed as of 25 years:

Salary Offset Pension base

Date of commencement € 50,000 € 11,803 € 38,197

Second year € 51,000 € 12,000 € 39,000

Third year € 52,000 € 12,250 € 39,750

Accrual = pension base x 2.15%

So, if indexation = 1.5% per year

How does this effect the pension accrual?
