Who Should Participate

Members of the following sections: Actuaries and others interested in understanding the impact of VM-20 on pricing of life insurance products and the product development process.


The new principle-based framework for U.S. statutory reserves as defined in Chapter 20 of the Valuation Manual (VM-20) may be used for life products issued starting in 2017.  The Society of Actuaries engaged Milliman to examine the impact of the new reserve standard for the product development actuary. This research examines the impact of VM-20 from a product development actuarial perspective to help actuaries and others enhance current practices to optimize pricing and product development activities within a VM-20 framework, as well as enhance intracompany communication and efficiencies related to VM-20.

This webcast will cover Phase 1 of the research project.
