CMI Working Paper 43

CMI critical illness diagnosis rates for accelerated business, 1999-2004

CMI Working Paper 43 presents claim diagnosis rates for accelerated critical illness insurance, on a 'lives' basis, using data for claims settled in 1999 to 2004

Four sets of rates are included in the paper:

  • males;
  • females;
  • non-smokers;
  • smokers.

The derivation of these diagnosis rates builds on our previous work. This had progressed to 'adjusted' results, which properly match claims to exposure, but do so in terms of settled claims, not diagnosed claims. The results in this paper are the first the CMI Critical Illness Committee has produced that relate to the date of diagnosis, when a critical illness claim is incurred.

The rates are by no means the only sets of rates that could have been derived from the data. Consequently the Committee is making available to member offices spreadsheets containing summarised data that will allow practitioners to experiment with alternative approaches.

The revised version of the working paper was released on 15 March 2010 and corrects some numbers in tables 3.16, C5 and C17.

    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.
