FAQ

  • What is Individual Retirement Account?

    Individual Retirement Accounts (IKE) belong to the third pension pillar. IKE are meant for people who want to save themselves for their future pension and to additionally benefit from capital gains tax relief (19% tax popularly known as “Belka’s tax”). Saving on IKE you can also identify beneficiaries i.e. persons, who will receive the money in the event of your death. The money thus conveyed is also free from inheritance and donations tax.

  • Does opening IKE with Millennium TFI funds, keeping it and depositing money on it involve any fees?

    Opening, as well as keeping and depositing money on IKE with Millennium TFI funds is free of charge and all the money you deposit will be invested in 100% with a view to your future pension.

  • How much money can I deposit on IKE during the year?

    Deposits on IKE with Millennium TFI funds are restricted according to regulations. The sum of annual deposits in 2019 cannot exceed the amount of 14 295 PLN, according to the announcement of the Minister of Family, Labour and Social Policy of 30 October 2018.

  • How many IKE can I have at the same time?

    You can have only one IKE. Moreover only one person can accumulate savings on one IKE. This means that you cannot have one IKE together with another person, e.g. spouse or child.

  • Can I withdraw money from IKE at any time?

    Yes, you always have access to the accumulated money. Remember however that any withdrawal before meeting conditions of the period of gathering savings and required age will involve loss of the tax relief and the need to pay capital gains tax. This means that the generated earnings, upon their withdrawal will be subject to 19% tax, just as other capital gains.

  • Do I have to regularly deposit a specific amount?

    No, opening an Individual Retirement Account does not mean a commitment to make monthly deposits. It is worth remembering however, that investing even small amounts regularly is an opportunity to accumulate a significant amount in the future.

  • Is the accumulated money inheritable?

    Yes. Money accumulated on IKE is treated as personal savings and in the event of the IKE owner it is conveyed to persons (beneficiaries) identified by him. In the IKE maintenance agreement the owner can identify one or more persons to whom the money accumulated on IKE will be paid in the event of his death. These instructions can be changed during functioning of IKE. If the owner fails to identify in the agreement the persons inheriting the money, the savings shall be included in the inheritance, which is subject to division in keeping with legal regulations.

  • Can I open IKE and accumulate savings on it if I am retired?

    Yes, however provided that so far you have not benefited from tax relief consisting in withdrawal of funds from IKE in relation to becoming eligible.

  • How can I get the tax benefit?

    The tax relief will be available only to persons who withdraw their accumulated savings only after the age of 60. Persons who become eligible for retirement before the age of 60, will be able to make the withdrawal if they turned 55. Moreover in order to become eligible for relief from capital gains tax, you must make:

    • deposits on IKE at least in any 5 calendar years, or
    • more than half of the value of deposits on IKE at least 5 years before the day of filing for withdrawal.

  • What is the minimum deposit?

    You can set up IKE with Millennium TFI funds starting with as little as PLN 500, and every subsequent payment to one subfund may not be lower than PLN 100. You decide how much you want to pay.

  • What subfunds should I choose and can I change them at any time?
