  1. Correction to the mortality improvement factors listed for improvement from 2009 to 2014 (and subsequently to 2015);
  2. Table improved from 2014 to 2015;
  3. Slight adjustments at the younger ages (as noted in the November presentation);
  4. Slight change in the preferred wear-off factors at oldest attained ages; and
  5. Corrections due to monotonicity checks.
