Default EOM 3 Task 1

For the defined benefit is it one split rate across all salary levels or can I input different split rates for different salaries. Like can 50K have a rate of 1.3/1.7 and 100k a rate of 1.4/1.75 etc..? I am assuming its one rate for all but i just want to be certain. Thanks

Are we to assume that all salary groups are aged 65 or do i plug in the ages of the 10 permanent employees for each salary band and get 30 different results?

For task 1 I assumed they were all 30 yr old career employees and developed a formula for them. You'll apply this formula you created to the current employee makeup later to analyze its strengths and weaknesses.
