Over the longer term annuity rates remain low with a drop in income for a pensioner of £2,350 pa or -29.7% since July 2008.

The 15-year gilt yield decreased 9 basis points to 1.62% during October 2018 with providers of standard annuities increasing rates by an average 0.59% for this month and we would expect rates to fall by -1.49% in the short term if yields do not fall.
