Start saving today

Already today you are determining the amount of your future pension

Are you able to survive from month to month with less than half of the average wage in the Slovak Republic, as most current pensioners do?

A pension from the Social Insurance provider will not guarantee a high-standard retirement and you high quality of life. It is easier to rely on yourself and start saving during your working years.

Average pension compared to avergae wage in Slovakia is decreasing

Newly-granted pensions in general do not guarantee an ideal and peaceful retirement

A supplementary pension from SPS is necessary to reduce the negative impact of a poor pension compared to the amount of income before retirement.

Why is it important to start to save for your pension as soon as possible?

If you start with your saving plan in reasonable amounts before age 30 you have a real chance to fund a quite good supplementary pension. If you postpone savings by 10 years under the same conditions, your pension from the 3rd pillar will be approximately half.

Postponing your saving plan by each year will lead to a reduction of the total sum of savings by an average of 7%. The earlier you start to think about your pension, the higher it will be*.

Save for your pension in SPS from 30 years of age and increase your pension by up to €300

*Calculation of the sum of savings is based on anticipated yield of 3.5% p. a. and an increase in the contribution by 2% per year; the pension will be paid for 10 years before taxation. The graph shows that postponing your saving plan by one year will lead to a reduction of the total sum of savings by 7%. This percentage varies based on the period of saving from 5% to 10% per year.

Significant information concerning the 1st pillar:

  • The significance of wage growth is gradually decreasing and the impact of inflation on pension valorization is increasing,

  • A real increase in retirement pensions in the 1st pillar is low,

  • From 2017 the normal pension age will increase based on life expectancy,

  • The pension system will have more solidarity, which means that people with higher incomes (1.25 multiple of the average wage) will pay more in levies but will not receive an accordingly higher pension.

Comfort lifeTB

The concept of Comfort lifeTB is based on saving in a single fund from the beginning until the end of one’s retirement saving.

It brings you absolute comfort in pension saving, so you will not have to think about adjusting your pension saving to correspond to your current age.

A comfortable way towards a better pension

The aim of the Comfort lifeTB funds is to attain long-term growth of a client’s savings based on his/her age.
It is important to choose the right fund in advance based on the year of your birth, which corresponds to the anticipated year of your retirement.

Why is it important to choose the right fund?

Toward the end of your saving regime when the value of your supplemental savings is most probably the highest, it will be important to maintain saving for times when financial markets do not do well.

Any decrease in the value of your savings immediately before your retirement may irrecoverably lower your future supplementary pension.

For this reason, SPS from Tatra banka has developed the innovative strategy Comfort lifeTB with pro-active care for a client’s savings.

Gradual decrease of risk

  • The correctly chosen Comfort lifeTB fund will focus on appreciation of your savings in the first years. At the beginning your funds will be mainly invested in growth assets (shares or commodities) with an emphasis on attaining significant yields.

  • As you age your funds will be automatically invested in safer, low-risk assets.
