Pension departments calculate lump sum payments using formulas that can include the GATT rate (based on the 30 year Treasury bond rate), the PBGC rate, a corporate bond rate, and/or other rates, which can change monthly, quarterly or yearly, as per specific company procedures.  Also included in the calculation is a life expectancy factor, length of service and an employee’s earnings.  Retirees typically receive the lump sum payment calculated upon the formula that generates the largest benefit.

GATT stands for General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade.  PBGC stands for Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.

“GATT Rates, PBGC rates and Treasury Bond rates are on our Calendar, which is in the “Education Resource Center” section of our web site.  You may access historical rates back to August, 2013, as well as current rates by clicking on the first day of the month that you want to see. We also may have future rates on the calendar which may be accessed by clicking on the first day of the future month.”
