1. Default assumptions for 2018-19 The default life expectancy table (as in At A Glance 2018-19) is now ONS16. Further detail can be found in Help/Legal and methodological information/Life expectancy. The default financial assumptions remain unchanged from last year (see Help/Legal and methodological information/Default assumptions).
2. Updating (or not) cases created in the financial year 2017-18 From 5 April 2018 if you open a case created in the previous financial year you will have the option of updating the calculations for 2018-19 or retaining them as they are (in which case you can view your input data and print reports, but not amend the calculations). If you want a copy of the case for each financial year, make a copy of the case and then update the copied case.
