TARGET AUDIENCE: LIfe Insurance Actuaries


With recent calls globally for new legislation that would limit the collection and use of genetic information by life insurance companies, actuaries have been tasked to assess the potential impact on insurance claims that would result from an expected increase in asymmetric information and applicant anti-selection. The presenter will summarize findings from the SOA’s recent project and published report examining the potential impact on U.S. life insurance industry claim costs should legislative changes ban the use of genetic testing information in the new business life insurance process on either the federal or state level.  The session will include an overview of the market model developed as part of the SOA's project.
