Working Paper 150 was published in April 2021 – note that a revised version of the working paper was released the same day. The working paper contains a consultation on the proposed “16” Series tables for mortality (including terminal illness) and for accelerated critical illness under non-rated term assurance policies, based on 2015-2018 data. The paper provides an overview of the dataset, describes the methodology used to produce the tables, including extending the tables to younger and older ages, and sets out accompanying analyses.
The proposed mortality tables were issued for consultation; the tables (which are unchanged from the proposed tables) were finalised alongside Working Paper 154.
There are three Excel spreadsheets issued alongside this paper:
The proposed “16” Series tables. This spreadsheet contains the proposed rates for ages 18 to 90. An updated spreadsheet has been issued alongside Working Paper 154 (although the rates themselves are unchanged).
- “All offices” results for 2015-2018, comparing the experience of the dataset with the proposed “16” Series tables.
- The datasets that underlie the graduations. These datasets cover a wider age range than we considered appropriate for the graduations, allowing users to assess our choice of age range, grouping of durations and graduation formulae using the CMI Graduation Software, available alongside Working Paper 77.
Note: this paper and the spreadsheets are available to Authorised Users only
The Committee hosted a webinar in June 2021, which gave an overview of the proposed “16” Series tables and briefly covered the cause of claim analysis and analysis of term assurances experience to mid-2020. A recording of the webinar is now available to Authorised Users only.

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.
In the spirit of fostering the IFoA’s vibrant, global community and enabling our members to participate, we have decided to hold our AGM virtually again this year. This allows for greater accessibility to this important annual event, and for greater accountability of our organisation.
The Business of the AGM
