How much should you save?
See how much you can put aside each month. With us, you can save from 10 euros a month for your retirement.
Set up a standing order to save for your pension if you wish, indicating for how much, when it is to be paid and from which account. That way, you can easily reach from 990 euros up to 1,270 euros (depending on your savings plan) to qualify for the full tax break.
How do you get tax relief?
Next year, you’ll get a 30% or 25% tax break on what you’ve paid in (depending on the maximum tax-deductible amount that you’ve chosen to save).
How do you check how much you’ve already saved?
KBC Brussels Mobile gives you a handy overview of your pension savings account. It lets you see at a glance how much you still have to pay in to reach the annual maximum for getting full tax relief.
