Description

Longevity risk is a key element in the work of many actuaries. The science of measuring and forecasting longevity is changing rapidly and it is important that our profession plays a leading role in this change. The SOA is sponsoring a series of webcasts through 2016 covering various longevity-related topics. The webcasts will leverage speakers and topics covered at an SOA-sponsored thought leaders seminar in 2015.

This, the third webcast in the series, will focus on setting the context for longevity risk. It will include a discussion of:

  • Mortality data sources and basic validation;
  • Deterministic mortality projection models; and
  • Stochastic mortality projection models.

This webcast recording is recommended to meet Enrolled Actuary continuing education requirements. While the sponsors of this program recommends this topic to satisfy 1.80 EA Non-Core Continuing Education credit for Enrolled Actuaries, the final decision as to meeting this requirement rests with the Joint Board for the Enrollment of Actuaries.

Note: The recording available for purchase is intended for individual viewing. Only one EA credit certificate will be issued per recording purchase.
