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 27 February the Lord Chancellor announced that under the provisions of Section 1 of the Damages Act 1996 the prescribed discount rate to be taken into account by the courts when assessing lump sum damages awards for personal injury would be lowered from 2.5% to -0.75% with effect from 20 March 2017. As the tables of multipliers in the current 7th edition of the Ogden Tables are not tabulated at a discount rate of -0.75% supplementary tables have been issued which provide multipliers at the current tabulated discount rates together with multipliers calculated at a rate of -0.75%. The new 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.
