We have checked this and if you resigned you should have used the BEFORE retirement option with the result of:

This is how you work it out:
Lump sum amount: R93000
Less: Tax on lump sum: R12240 (18% of lump sum exceeding R25,000)
Equals: R80760

Was it confusing to you, we want to make sure our calculators are easy to understand and if there were any issues we would appreciate feedback on how to improve.
