ExxonMobil Lump Sums Rise, as Rates Cool

For ExxonMobil employees, it is crucial to understand how interest rates can impact your lump-sum particularly those who live in Texas.

While monthly interest rates are trending upward, quarter over quarter blended rates actually fell from Q4 2021 to Q1 2022. If the broader trend of rising interest rates continues it will decrease the value of ExxonMobil employees' pension lump-sums, but for Q1 2022 employees should actually see their lump-sum amounts increase. The IRS has recently released the Segment rates for the month of September, recorded at: 0.7% / 2.55% / 3.06%. Over the course of 2021, interest rates at ExxonMobil increased significantly, which greatly reduced many lump sum payments. With record low rates culminating in the first quarter of 2021, ExxonMobil employees have since seen a significant increase in interest rates. We saw an increase in rates for the second, third, and fourth quarters of 2021 in the second segment, and now first quarter rates for 2022 have dropped slightly. Rates fell roughly 0.24% in the second segment, in the last quarter. The short term rates have experienced a slight increase, while the long term rates decreased significantly by 0.34%. Even though blended rates for the second quarter of 2022 will not be known until the end of December, month over month increases in segment rates may be an early indicator of bad news for ExxonMobil employees opting for a lump-sum.
