    Classic CS pension inverse commutation rate

    Hi - does anyone know what factor is used by the civil service classic scheme for calculating inverse commutation?

    I believe I have a preserved pension of 4,350 pa with a lump sum of 13,050. If I were to ask for that lump sum to be converted to pension, how much would my annual pension be please?

    I am 56 next birthday and plan on taking actuarial bought out early retirement three-months after that birthday.

    Thanks in advance.

    For a person aged 56.25 inversely commuting 13,050 the increase in pension would be between 595 and 646, depending on survivor pension and gender. That is a factor between 20 and 22. I'm not sure if there are any limits to the amount you can commute.

    ISTR that the rate isn't fixed but varies based on the current view of longevity, (nominal) investment returns etc & you need to get in touch for a quote

    Edit: or perhaps not then

    Thank you very much for that information.

    I don't quite understand this comment though -

    Noodling - I have a classic civil service pension deferred from when I left in 1995. Apart from the Pension Statement I request now and again I have never had any Pension information.
    I was assuming I could get this Pension from age 60.
    I am potentially thinking of retiring at 57 and thought I would live off savings until then.
    Just curious as to what are the advantages of actuarial bought out early retirement Forgive my ignorance.
