This consultation ran from to
Consultation on defined benefit rebates for 2012 to 2017, examining 3 approaches.
The Government Actuary’s Department is pleased to publish a consultation document on the proposed assumptions to inform my advice on the calculation of contracted-out rebates for the period 2012 to 2017.
The abolition of contracting-out on a defined contribution basis means that the focus of this consultation is on the defined benefit rebate.
We are consulting on the actuarial assumptions which might be used on 3 alternative approaches: * a ‘best estimate’ basis, * a ‘typical funding’ basis, and * a ‘gilts’ basis.
