Historical Funding Segment Rate Tables

Generally (except for certain plans under Sections 104, 105, and 402 of the Pension Protection Act of 2006 and CSEC plans under Section 414(y)), for funding purposes, single-employer plans are required to use the 24-month average segment rates determined under Section 430(h)(2) of the Code, as amended by the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), the Highway and Transportation Funding Act of 2014 (HATFA), and the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 (BBA). However, a plan sponsor is permitted to elect to use the monthly yield curve under Section 430(h)(2)(D)(ii) in place of the segment rates. Section 430(h)(2)(c)(iv), which was added by MAP-21, requires that the 24-month average segment rates be adjusted by the applicable maximum and applicable minimum percentages of the 25-year average segment rates from the 25-year period ending September 30 of the year before the calendar year in which the plan year begins. Section 2003(a) of HATFA amended the applicable percentages under Section 430(h)(2)(C)(iv) of the Code. This change generally applies to plan years beginning on or after January 1, 2013. However, a plan sponsor is permitted to elect not to have the amendments made to the applicable percentages by HATFA apply to any plan year beginning in 2013. This election can be made either for all purposes or, alternatively, for purposes of determining the adjusted funding target attainment percentage under IRC Section 436. Section 504 of BBA amended the applicable percentages again, generally effective for plan years beginning after December 31, 2015.

This page provides funding segment rates for plan years beginning before 2014. See Funding Yield Curve Segment Rates, Funding Table 1 and Funding Table 2 for information on applicable minimum and maximum percentages, 25-year average segment rates, and the resulting permissible corridors based on HATFA/BBA, and Funding Table 3 for segment rates for plan years beginning after 2013. See Historical Funding Tables 1 – 3, MAP-21 for certain electing plans, below. See Historical Funding Table 4 or Table 5 for rate information applicable to plan years beginning before 2012.

Historical Funding Table 3 lists the 24-month average segment rates without adjustment for the applicable percentages of the 25-year average segment rates, and lists the 24-month average segment rates as adjusted by the HATFA applicable maximum and applicable minimum percentages of the 25-year average segment rates for plan years beginning before 2014. However, see Table 3 - MAP-21 for certain electing plans.

The funding transitional segment rates of Section 430(h)(2)(G) are used for minimum funding requirements for plan years beginning before 2010 if the 24-month rates above do not apply and if no election is made under Section 430(h)(2)(D)(ii) to use the full yield curve. The transitional segment rates take into account blending with the Corporate Bond Weighted Average as determined under Section 412(b)(5)(B)(ii)(II) as in effect for plan years beginning in 2007.

Historical Funding Table 5 lists the transitional segment rates for the plan years beginning in the stated year with respect to the applicable month and year listed.
