CMI Working Paper 112

Working Paper 112: Additional analyses of the experience of pension annuities in payment, 2011-2014
Important note: Whilst processing the data underlying Working Paper 117, we received resubmissions of data covering the years 2011-2014 data from several insurers. This has created some uncertainty around the dataset underlying both Working Paper 101 and Working Paper 112. We have reissued these papers with a prominent “health warning” to see Working Paper 117 before using either of these papers.

Working Paper 112 was originally published in November 2018 and reissued in January 2019 (see above). The working paper describes additional analyses of pension annuities in payment over the period 2011 to 2014. 

The working paper describes additional analyses of pension annuities in payment over the period 2011 to 2014. This follows Working Paper 101 which was issued in July 2017 alongside the “all offices” results for 2011-2014.

This paper sets out the results of two separate pieces of analysis:

  • indicative graduations of the 2011-2014 data, including by product; and
  • multivariate analysis of the experience using Generalised Linear Models.

Both analyses are intended to help us consider whether it is appropriate to produce new graduated mortality tables for pension annuities in payment and, if so:

  • What factors we should include in the tables, in addition to age and gender; and
  • What issues we may encounter in the data, and how we should resolve such issues.

We do not intend issuing new tables based on the dataset used for these analyses; instead we will use a more recent period once we have that dataset. Undertaking these analyses is intended to facilitate speedier production of new tables and making them available in this paper gives Subscribers an opportunity to comment on our preliminary thinking. We have included a number of specific questions at the end of the paper and would be very pleased to receive comments on these; comments can be sent to annuities@cmilimited.co.uk preferably by 31 December 2018, to enable us to take account of these views in producing draft tables.

Note: the paper and accompanying spreadsheet are available to Authorised Users only.

An Excel spreadsheet of the indicative rates is released alongside this paper.

    We’ve all heard about the gender pay gap. Sadly, the gap doesn’t just exist with base pay.

    Research carried out by Legal & General in 2021 across the four million members in our Defined Contribution (DC) pensions, found that there’s a gender pension gap too, continuing the divide between men and women.

    As current global events continue to demonstrate, geopolitical tensions present significant risks to corporates of all sizes. However, these types of risk are often not given the discussion time it needs at the board level or executive committee levels, nor the resources required to anticipate, analyse and mitigate them effectively.

    At retirement, it has become very popular for those with Defined Contribution (DC) pensions to choose drawdown rather than an annuity, but drawing a sustainable lifetime income in this way is an impossible challenge for most people. We consider a Decumulation Pathway for the typical consumer, where a small part of the DC fund is set aside for any flexible access and legacy requirements. The bulk is then used to provide a lifetime income, utilising the pooling or insuring of longevity risk.

    We continue to live in a world of global uncertainty. Survival depends on our ability to simultaneously navigate through the diverse root-causes, ranging from: the consequences of Climate Change; transitioning to Net Zero; increased inflationary pressures and supply chain issues; to self-imposed changes in regulatory requirements. CILA 2022 focuses on these challenges to ensure we continue to be informed and remain battle ready, as well as showcasing highlights of recent CMI outputs.
