Contingent Contract Reserves Lecture Week 1 l l Chapter summary 0 Insurance reserVes a what are they a how do we calculate them 9 why are they important a Net premium reserves or benefit reserves a prospective calculation of reserves a retrospective calculation of reserves in I 39 between F and 0 Chapters 8 Cunningham et al l l Insurance reserves 0 Money set aside to be able to cover insurer39s future financial obligations as promised through the insurance contract a reserves show up as a liability item in the balance sheet 3 increases in reserves are an expense item in the income statement 0 Reserve calculations may vary because of a purpose of reserve valuation statutory solvency GAAP realistic shareholdersinvestors mergersacquisitions a assumptions and basis mortality interest may be prescribed a Actuary is responsible for preparing an Actuarial Opinion and Memorandum that the company39s assets are sufficient to back reserves a Reserves are more often called provisions in Europe l l Why hold reserves 0 For several life insurance contracts a the expected cost of paying the benefits generally increases over the contract term but a the periodic premiums used to fund these benefits are level 0 The portion of the premiums not required to pay expected cost in the early years are therefore set aside or provisioned to fund the expected shortfall in the later years of the contract 0 Reserves also help reduce cost of benefits as they also earn interest while being set aside 0 Although reserves are usually held on a per contract basis it is still the overall responsibility of the actuary to ensure that in the aggregate the company39s assets are enough to back these reserves l l The insurer s prospective loss 9 At any future time 25 define the insuer39s prospective loss to be tL PVFBtiPVFPt o For most types of policies it is generally true that for t 2 O tL 2 0 Le PVFBt Z PVFPt o For our purposes we shall define the expected value of this prospective loss to be the

the survival of the life at time 25 Because otherwise there is no need to hold reserves when policy has been paid out 0 Reserves are indeed released from the balance sheet when policy is paid out Il l

retrospective formulas can be made a For these plans and other special types the fundamental principles always hold Keep in mind that when developing the reserves the prospective formula of APVFB APVFP and equivalently the retrospective formula of AAVPP AAVPB always hold a AAVPP refers to the actuarial accumulated value of past premiums while AAVPB refers to the actuarial accumulated value of past cost of insurance l l A general form of life insurance 0 Consider a general fully discrete insurance issued to for which a death benefit is payable at the end of the policy year of death in

of decrement o A life fails because of one of these decrements 0 Examples include a life insurance contract is terminated because of deathsurvival or withdrawal lapse a an insurance contract provides

group within 3 years due to decrement 1 is 000884 Compute the length of time a person now age z is expected to remain in the triple decrement table Answer to be discussed in lecture 83 13 years l l The associated single decrement tables a For each of the causes of decrement in an MDT a single decrement table can be defined showing the operation of that decrement independent of the others a called the associated singledecrement table ASDT 0 Each table represents a group of lives reduced continuously by only one decrement For example a group subject only to death but not to other decrements such as withdrawal 0 The associated probabilities in the ASDT are called absolute rates of decrements For example the absolute rate of decrement due to decrement j over the interval zm l t is tqmlj a One should be able to explain intuitively why the following always hold true I 1 161 2 161 I l l l Statistical treatment 0 It is often instructive to develop multiple decrement theory from a statistics point of view by defining the random variables a x T the future lifetime random variable and a x J the cause of decrement which is discrete with possible values J 17 2 Wm 0 Relationships

develop actuarial and statistical expressions in the case where the consider the discrete future lifetime Km together with the discrete random variable Jm indicating the decrement 0 See the

that decrement 1 is death decrement 2 is disability and decrement 3 is withdrawal In addition you have o c1301 001 c1502 005 and c1503 010 o Withdrawals occur only at the end of the year 0 Mortality and disability are uniformly distributed over each year of age in the associated single decrement tables Calculate q gl l l Illustrative example 1 9 An insurance policy issued to 50 will pay 407 000 upon death if death is accidental and occurs within 25 years a An additional benefit of 107 000 will be paid regardless of the time or cause of death 0 The force of accidental death at all ages is 001 o The force of death for all other causes is 005 at all ages a You are given 6 10 9 Find the net single premium for this policy 0 To be discussed in lecture l l Illustrative example 2 a An employer provides his employees aged 62 the following oneyear term benefits payable at the end of the year of decrement a 1 if decrement results from cause 1 a 2 if decrement results from cause 2 and a 6 if decrement results from cause 3 0 Only three possible decrements exist o In their associated singledecrement tables all three decrements follow de Moivre39s Law with w 65 0 You are given i 10 0 Find the actuarial present value at age 62 of the benefits l l Asset share calculations Asset shares refer to the projections of the assets expected to accumulate under a single policy or a portfolio of policies To illustrate consider an insurance contract that pays a a benefit of bid at the end of year k for deaths during the year and o a benefit of 135 at the end of year k for withdrawals of surrenders during the year The policy receives an annual contract premium of G at the beginning of the year It pays a percentage 7 of the premium for expenses plus a fixed amount of expense of ek Expenses occur at the beginning of the year l l continued In addition we have 0 Interest rate is an effective annual rate of i o The probabilities of decrements are denoted by q zkil and qgilkil respectively for deaths and withdrawals The probability of staying in force through year k is therefore d P kq 1 qllka qSllkel39 Denote the asset share at the end of year k by kAS with an initial
