Illustrations

Where illustrations are given, all figures shown are examples only and are not guaranteed - they are not minimum or maximum amounts. What you will get back depends on how your investments grow and interest rates at the time you take your benefits. You could get back more or less than this. All companies use the same rates of growth for illustrative purposes but their charges vary. Do not forget that inflation would reduce what you could buy in the future with the amounts shown.
