Rates / Resources
The latest interest rate information available is proactively implemented (in an ongoing basis) into the latest version of Lynchval software. Each month the IRS and the PBGC provide various prescribed rates for federal income tax purposes and valuing lump sum payments. Lynchval uses these sources listed below to create the intrates.tbl file that is read by LVwin and LVindiv. Commonly used interest rates and IRS dollar limits are published on the Lynchval website monthly. (The IRS has not released an updated composite corporate bond rate since December 2017).
Additional information on interest rates can be found by accessing the following government websites.PBGC Rates PBGC rates published by the PBGC: (Lump Sums)

If you wish to use this file, download it to your "LVwin\FL95OBJ" folder and/or "LVindiv" base folder. If you have custom rates defined at the bottom of your old Intrates.tbl make sure not to overwrite it! (The IRS has not released an updated composite corporate bond rate since December 2017. Rates after then are set equal to the most recently released rate.)
