The presenters will examine the next phase of the SOA's research study on the impact of VM-20 on life product development. It will include illustrative pricing examples of level-term products and demonstrate the impact of reinsurance. Level-term experience results from a number of companies will be reviewed, with factors including: age, gender, risk class and policy size. Additional commentary will be provided on issues including: change in product development process, setting assumptions where limited credibility is available, impact of reinsurance, and the aggregation of reserves.

At the conclusion of the session, attendees will be able to:

  • Describe the impacts of VM-20 on life insurance product development;
  • Understand issues in applying VM-20 to term products; and
  • Identify the effects of VM-20 on reinsurance and the product development process.
