Suppose an employee of a company is retiring and has the choice of two benefit options under the company pension plan. Option A consists of a guaranteed payment of $1,575,000 at the end of each month for 10 years. Altematively, under option B the employee receives a lump-sum payment equal to the present value of the payments described under option A.
(a) find the sum of the payments under option A.
(b) find the lump-sum payment under option B if it is determined by using an interest rate of 18% compounded monthly.

  • pl. check question - ,

    The monthly payment seems a little high for today's living standards.

  • Mathematics - ,

    a. Option A.1575000 *120mo.=189000000 in 10 yrs.

    b. Option B.1.575M @ 18% APR,Compounded
    monthly. Pt=Po*(r+1)^n.
    Pt=Value at 10 yrs. r=MPR=Monthly percentage rate. n=the number of
    interest compounding periods.

    r=18/12/100=0.015
    n=12*10=120

    Pt=1575000*(0.015+1)^120=9401683.52=
    Value @ 10yrs.

    Evidently, this is not a practical
    situation.

  • Mathematics - ,

    1575000(12mnth*10years)=189,000,000
