In this case, t 9.6, δ 9.6 δ 0.05, t V is denoted by 9.6 V and it is unknown, P t is a gross premium with the annual rate of 450, e t are premium related expenses at 2% of premium, S t is constant with S ,000, E , so that d t V dt t V ( 06, V ) V. Substituting into the Euler s formula, we obtain 9.6V 9.8 V 0.2 d tv This results in dt t V Answer B ( V ) V. November 202 Course MLC Examination, Problem No. 7 You are calculating asset shares for a universal life insurance policy with a death benefit of 000 on (x) with death benefits payable at the end of the year of death. You are given: (i) The account value at the end of year 4 is 30. (ii) The asset share at the end of year 4 is 20. (iii) At the beginning of year 5: a. A premium of 20 is paid. b. Annual cost of insurance charges of 2 and annual expense charges of 7 are deducted from the account value. (iv) At the beginning of year 5, the insurer incurs expenses of 2.

(ii) Mortality follows the Illustrative Life Table. (iii) Maturity (in years) Annual Effective Spot Rate.6% 2 2.6% (iv) For the year starting at time k and ending at time k, k 3, 4, 5,..., the one-year forward rate is 6%. Calculate the expected present value of the death benefits. A. 520 B. 530 C. 550 D. 570 E. 600 It seems like it will be a lot of calculations to go from age 70 to the limiting age if we do every year calculation separately. But the Illustrative Life Table of course gives us actuarial present values of whole life insurance death benefits, except that it does so for the valuation interest rate of 6%. Here, the spot rates for the first two years are well below 6%, but beyond that all one-year forward rates are 6% (so that all rates for all periods starting at time 2 or later are also 6%). Thus starting from age 72, we can determine actuarial present values from the Illustrative Life Table. We have Copyright 202 by Krzysztof Ostaszewski. All rights reserved.

The premium is paid as a life annuity due on (40), hence Π a Therefore, G.02Π If we calculated the reserve retrospectively, we would obtain G 000q E ( ).06 But prospectively, we obtain ( 000A E 4 000A 5 ) + 0 a a 4 4 Actuarial present value of future benefits Actuarial present value of future expenses Actuarial present value of future gross premiums The difference of these two is ( ) ( 6.202) Note that the actuarial present value at policy inception of the profit portion of the gross premium is 0.02 Π a Its actuarial accumulated value at policy duration is approximately E 40 ( ).06 Let us write the actuarial equivalence for gross premium valuation at policy inception: Actuarial Present Value of Future Gross Premiums Actuarial Present Value of Future Benefits and Expenses + + Actuarial Present Value of Future Profits. Note that at policy inception, the actuarial present value of future benefits and expenses minus the actuarial present value of future gross premiums equals the opposite (i.e., minus) of the actuarial present value of future profits. Now consider a policy duration k, where k is an integer. Let us write APV for actuarial present value, and AAV for actuarial accumulated value. We have at policy inception: APV (Future Gross Premiums) APV (Future Gross Premiums up to time k) + + APV (Future Gross Premiums from time k on) APV (Future Benefits and Expenses) + APV (Future Profits) APV (Future Benefits and Expenses up to time k) + + APV (Future Benefits and Expenses from time k on) + + APV (Future Profits). Now we accumulate all of these amounts to policy duration k Copyright 202 by Krzysztof Ostaszewski. All rights reserved. No reproduction in any form is permitted without

19 AAV (Past Gross Premiums up to time k) + + APV (Future Gross Premiums from time k on) AAV (Past Benefits and Expenses up to time k) + + APV (Future Benefits and Expenses from time k on) + + Actuarial Value (Past and Future Profits). Therefore, at policy duration k, Retrospective Reserve AAV (Past Gross Premiums) AAV (Past Benefits and Expenses) APV (Future Benefits and Expenses) APV (Future Gross Premiums) + + Actuarial Value (Past and Future Profits) Prospective Reserve + Actuarial Value (Past and Future Profits). If you recall that the purpose of the reserve is to provide funds for benefits and expenses payment that are not paid by remaining premiums, you now should be able to clearly see that the prospective reserve calculation is the correct one, and if you do the calculation retrospectively, you must subtraction the actuarial value of all profits at the moment of calculation from the retrospective calculation result. In this problem, the reserve at policy duration is: Interestingly, 40 was one of the answer choices, nice little trap waiting for the candidates taking the exam. The correct answer choice is 60, the one closest to Answer B. November 202 Course MLC Examination, Problem No. 9 For whole life annuities-due of 5 per month on each of 200 lives age 62 with independent future lifetimes, you are given: (i) i ( 2 (ii) A ) and 2 ( 2 A ) (iii) Π is the single premium to be paid by each of the 200 lives.

You are given: (i) Equal annual premiums, determined using the equivalence principle, were paid at the beginning of each year during the deferral period. (ii) Mortality at ages 65 and older follows the Illustrative Life Table. (iii) i (iv) Y is the present value random variable at age 65 for Stuart s annuity benefits. Calculate the probability that Y is less than the actuarial accumulated value of Stuart s premiums. A B C D E Copyright 202 by Krzysztof Ostaszewski. All rights reserved. No reproduction in any form is permitted without

21 Let us write P for the annual premium that Stuart has paid. Since it was calculated using the equivalence principle, we have P 20 E 45 a 65 a 45:20. Let us write K 65 for the curtate future lifetime of (65) (we could also write K(65), but we need to get used to the new notation, so this is a good time to practice). The probability we are looking for is (note that a from the Illustrative Life Table) P a Pr 45:20 > a 20 E K Pr 20 E 45 a 65 a 45:20 > a a 45:20 20 E K Pr( a 65 > a K65 + ) Pr( > a K65 + ). If we use BA II Plus Pro, set BGN mode by pushing 2ND, BGN if BGN is not displayed, and enter 0 FV, PMT, PV, 6 I/Y, CPT N, we obtain This means that the probability sought is Pr K 65 + < Pr( K ) 4 p 65 l l For a moment, when you see the formula for P you might worry about working with mortality from before age 65, when we are told that mortality follows the Illustrative Life Table only from age 65 on, but as you can see, items related to mortality from before age 65 cancel nicely in the work involved in finding the probability sought.
