The ASB recently approved a second exposure draft of a revision of ASOP No. 22, now titled Statements of Actuarial Opinion Based on Asset Adequacy Analysis for Life Insurance, Annuity, or Health Insurance Reserves and Other Liabilities. The ASOP applies to actuaries when performing actuarial services with respect to providing a statement of actuarial opinion based on asset adequacy analysis of life insurance, annuity, or health insurance reserves and other liabilities when a) the statement of actuarial opinion is prepared to comply with applicable law based on the model Standard Valuation Law and VM-30 of the NAIC Valuation Manual, or b) the statement of actuarial opinion is prepared for an insurance company to comply with other applicable law. Notable changes from the first exposure draft include clarifying the scope, revising guidance on the discount rate, and removing several defined terms including “investment yield risk” and “moderately adverse deviation.” The comment deadline for the exposure draft is Nov. 30, 2020. Information on how to submit comments using the new template can be found in the draft.
