Fat chance of drawing their full pension

In Tony Pettengell’s ‘Off Message’ about fat people (Personnel Today, 10 April), he fails to mention one of the benefits fat people bring to business.

Their shorter life expectancy means they are unlikely to live long enough to draw the full value of their pensions.

Perhaps actuaries should include the body mass index range of an organisation’s employees when calculating its pension deficit.
