2019 Universal Life with Secondary Guarantees Survey
The Joint Risk Management Section is trying to develop better estimates of policyholder behavior in the tail (PBITT). The mission of the PBITT working group is to examine and ultimately give guidance to actuaries on how to set policyholder assumptions in extreme scenarios.
As part of its work, the PBITT working group issued a survey that gathered the range of assumptions actuaries use in pricing, reserving, and risk management of UL with Secondary Guarantees.
Thanks to the members of the PBITT working group for their help in issuing and reviewing the survey:
Jim Reiskytl, Chair
Steven Siegel, SOA Sr. Practice Research Actuary
Barbara Scott, SOA Sr. Research Administrator
Special thanks to Dale Hagstrom and Meinaloshyani Viruthasalam for their analysis and drafting the report. The working group gratefully acknowledges all of the companies that participated in the survey.
