Note: More recent versions of the CMI Mortality Projections Model have subsequently been released. View the full list of model versions
The structure of the CMI_2013 Model is identical to that of the previous versions and is accompanied by an updated User Guide. However, the default parameters contained in the model have been updated to reflect the publication of England and Wales population mortality data for calendar year 2012. This Working paper illustrates the impact of incorporating data for 2012.
CMI Working Paper 69 also summarises the responses to the recent consultation on the future of the Model and the CMI Library of Mortality Projections and outlines the Committee’s reaction and planned next steps
The default Initial Rates of Mortality Improvement are higher than those published in CMI_2012 at the youngest ages, for both males and females, however they are lower at older ages, again for both males and female. These reductions at older ages mean that Core Projections generated by CMI_2013 produce lower expectations of life than those produced by CMI_2012 (with other parameters held constant) for both males and females.
Age-period-cohort spreadsheets have been issued in response to the consultation because there were requests for increased transparency of the derivation of the Age/Period and Cohort Components of the initial rates of improvement.

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.
