See Capital Adequacy (E) Task Force for annual charges.

2018 Additional Charges

The Life Risk-Based Capital (E) Working Group will:

  1. Evaluate risk-based capital (RBC) in light of principle-based reserving (PBR). Consider changes to RBC needed because of the changes in reserve values, including the "right-sizing" of reserves, margins in the reserves, any expected increase in reserve volatility, the overall desired level of solvency measurement and other issues. Complete by the 2018 Fall National Meeting.

  2. Consider a total balance sheet approach (e.g., total asset requirement (TAR) type calculation and then subtracting out the PBR reserves) and application of stress scenarios. These charges should include appropriate consideration of International Association of Insurance Supervisors' (IAIS) Insurance Core Principles (ICPs). Complete by the 2018 Fall National Meeting.

The following Subgroups report to the Life Risk-Based Capital (E) Working Group:
