The future begins today. Make savings for retirement years

Paragraphs

It is worth investing in your future

The current pension system with 1st and 2nd pension pillar will provide about a half of current income for future pensioners. As life expectancy increases, so does the number of years you will spend in retirement. To maintain the current standard of living after retiring, it is important to timely start saving for retirement years – the sooner the accumulation starts, the easier it is to accumulate the desired amount.

Receipt of the savings

When concluding a contract, you will determine its term, but the contract may also be terminated earlier.

*In accordance with the law “On personal income tax”, income from savings with life insurance of a natural person is subject to tax. The payable tax is 20% of the life insurance contract income, determined as the difference between the payable savings and all contributions paid during the contract (instead of the amount of all savings). The tax is to be paid on the date of earning the income, namely, at the moment of payment of savings or redemption cost and the payer of the specific income is responsible for the collection of the tax, i.e. SEB Life and Pension Baltic SE. So you will not need to take any additional action on the declaration and payment of tax.

* If personal income tax benefit has been received, the personal income tax will have to be reimbursed for the amount for which the tax benefit has been applied upon termination of the contract for the first 10 years.

To receive the actual savings, you must submit an application at the end of the contract.

If any unexpected situation occurs, and you suddenly need the accumulated money before the term, you can also terminate the contract before its expiry, receiving the specified redemption amount.

If the insured person loses its life, the insurance indemnity, which consists of the sum insured and the created savings, is paid into the specified account, on the basis of the beneficiary's application.
