The Ogden Discount Rate Change Explained
The Ogden discount rate was recently reduced from +2.5% to -0.75%. sending insurers into a frenzy. But what does it actually mean?
In short, the Ogden discount rate is a calculation, used to determine how much money insurance companies should pay out to people who have suffered personal injury, in order to cover all of their predicted future losses. A multiplier is added to a lump sum amount, to account for any interest earned, and work out how much would be needed over the claimant's likely lifetime.
To calculate how much to deduct to account for interest on the sum provided, the insurer uses the Ogden discount rate; the lower the rate, the higher the typical settlement of a claim.
The recent change therefore, is expected to cost the insurance industry millions of pounds.
What will the impact be on my insurance?
Insurance premiums are expected to rise as a result of the change. Reviewing your levels of indemnity is therefore important.
