The ASB adopted new ASOP No. 54, Pricing of Life Insurance and Annuity Products. ASOP No. 54 applies to actuaries when performing actuarial services with respect to the pricing of life insurance and annuity products when a product is initially developed or when charges or benefits are changed for future sales. The standard does not apply to any changes made on in-force policies. A first exposure draft was issued in March 2016, for which 17 comment letters were received. The ASB approved a second exposure draft in June 2017, for which six comment letters were received. Comments from both exposure drafts were considered in making changes reflected in the final ASOP. The standard will be effective for any actuarial services performed on or after Dec. 1, 2018. ASOP No. 54 can be viewed here.
