Details

These tables, complete with explanatory notes, are an aid for actuaries, lawyers and others when calculating the lump sum to be paid in compensation for financial losses or expenses (such as care costs) directly caused by personal injury or death.

Widely known as the Ogden tables, they are prepared by an inter-disciplinary working party of actuaries, lawyers, accountants and insurers. They are currently in their seventh edition.

Hard copies of the tables are available from The Stationery Office.

On 15 July 2019 the Lord Chancellor announced that, under the provisions of Section A1 of the Damages Act 1996 (as amended by the Civil Liability Act 2018), the prescribed discount rate to be taken into account by the courts when assessing lump sum damages awards for personal injury would be increased from minus 0.75% to minus 0.25% with effect from 5 August 2019. Tables of multipliers in the current 7th edition of the Ogden Tables are not tabulated at a rate of return of minus 0.25%. Hence supplementary tables have been issued which provide multipliers at the current tabulated discount rates, together with multipliers calculated at discount rates of minus 0.25% and minus 0.75%. These multipliers have been calculated using the same mortality rates and other assumptions underlying the tables in the 7th edition. The other tables of factors in the explanatory notes to the 7th edition have not been revised at this time.

These supplementary tables are only available via the links above, they will not be available in hard copy from The Stationery Office.
