Definition

A pension valuation factor is a multiple applied to the gross annual payment received from an asset tested defined benefit income stream to determine the asset value of that income stream (1.1.I.70).

Pension valuation factors are contained in tables which have been determined by the Minister under a disallowable instrument.
