Important note: “IP11” claim inception rates
We have identified issues with some of the data underlying the “IP11” claim inception rates leading to an overstatement of inceptions exposure and therefore an understatement of claim inception rates.
The CMI IP Tool and the “IP11” graduations themselves have not been updated but users should refer to the information provided in Working Paper 149 and the spreadsheet of indicative adjustments to the claim inception rates, provided alongside Working Paper 136.
Terminations experience is unaffected.
All CMI subscribers were contacted to notify them of this issue.
CMI Income Protection Rate Table Tool
This is a spreadsheet-based tool, designed to assist practitioners in deriving claim inception and termination rates, as well as other factors required for their in-house profit testing, valuation and experience analysis tools, such as claim annuity values. It is intended to help practitioners make full use of the published graduations – notably the “IP11” termination rates and earlier graduations which were published as formulae – and experience. Version 1.2 incorporates the “IP11” claim inception and termination rates which were finalised alongside Working Paper 136 in September 2020.
The Tool allows straightforward calculation of inception and termination rates, and includes secondary functions to calculate rates of decrement, continuance probabilities and claim annuity values. Examples are provided to demonstrate use of these functions and to help enable users to tailor them to their own needs.
A user guide provides documentation for the CMI IP Tool.

The importance of biodiversity for finance, business and policy is being increasingly recognised. While many studies highlight the overall economic impact that biodiversity loss could have, it is much more difficult to quantify and understand the particular impact that is may have on individual businesses or communities. The management and measurement of these risks is a field where actuaries are well placed to contribute.
The climate crisis and the degradation of our planet will affect societies everywhere. How we address these threats will require solutions that transcend borders. As a global profession, the actuarial community is well-placed to consider and propose effective risk management solutions to help manage the climate crisis.
