In this article, dynamic valuation of wrongful death compensation with single and annual level payment are discussed. The annual growth rate of the wage and the risk-free interest rate are assumed to follow multi-Vasicek model. The formula of calculating time-varying correlation coefficient between the wage and the discounting rate are deducted. Empirical data from U.S, and China shows that multi-Vasicek model is a good model to be fitted to display the change patterns of the annual growth of the wage and risk-free interest rate.
