As we continue our Rate Watch 2017 series, we see new fluctuations in rates as the fall approaches. If you have missed any of our previous Rate Watch Articles, you can find them here:

Rate Watch – April
Rate Watch – May

Let’s start by looking at the numbers:

June 2017 Rates

We see a large decrease in rates from May to June, but there is not much to be taken from this mark just yet as it is not the official rate from Edison and 2 more months remain. The prime take away should be: with the June rate getting closer to the 2017 official plan rate of 4.18, what happens if the rate stays flat or relatively the same?

If the 2018 rate comes out exactly the same as the previous year, then you gain even greater control of deciding when you want to retire since the lump sum value would theoretically be unchanged. You get to retire on your terms.

Official plan rates are derived from the minimum present value segment rates table. Plan rate changes are made by Southern California Edison on an annual basis.
