Preface

A new version of Exam MLC is launched in Spring 2014. The new Exam MLC is significantly

different from the old one, most notably in the following aspects:

(1) Written-answer questions are introduced and form a major part of the examination.

(2) The number of official textbooks is reduced from two to one. The new official textbook,

Actuarial Mathematics for Life Contingent Risks 2nd edition (AMLCR), contains a lot more

technical materials than other textbooks written on the same topic.

(3) The level of cognitive skills demanded from candidates is much higher. In particular, the

new learning objectives require candidates to not only calculate numerical values but also,

for example, interpret the results they obtain.

(4) Several new (and more advanced) topics, such as participating insurance, are added to the

syllabus.

Because of these major changes, ACTEX have decided to bring you this new study manual,

which is written to fit the new exam.

We know very well that you may be worried about written-answer questions. To help you best

prepare for the new exam, this manual contains some 150 written-answer questions for you to

practice. Seven full-length mock exams, written in exactly the same format as that announced in

SoAs Exam MLC Introductory Note, are also provided. Many of the written-answer questions

in our mock exams are highly challenging! We are sorry for giving you a hard time, but we do

want you to succeed in the real exam.

The learning outcomes of the new exam syllabus require candidates to be able to interpret a lot

of actuarial concepts. This skill is drilled extensively in our written-answer practice problems,

which often ask you to interpret a certain actuarial formula or to explain your calculation. Also,

as seen in SoAs Exam MLC Sample Written-Answer Questions (e.g., #9), you may be asked in

the new exam to define or describe a certain insurance product or actuarial terminology. To help

you prepare for this type of exam problems, we have prepared a special chapter (Chapter 0),

which contains definitions and descriptions of various products and terminologies. The special

chapter is written in a fact sheet style so that you can remember the key points more easily.

Proofs and derivations are another key challenge. In the new exam, you are highly likely to be

asked to prove or derive something. This is evidenced by, for example, problem #4 in SoAs

Exam MLC Sample Written-Answer Questions, which demands a mathematical derivation of

the Kolmogorov forward differential equations for a certain transition probability. In this new

study manual, we do teach (and drill) you how to prove or derive important formulas. This is in

stark contrast to some other exam prep products in which proofs and derivations are downplayed,

if not omitted.

We have paid special attention to the topics that are newly introduced in the recent two syllabus

updates. Seven full-length chapters (Chapters 0, 10, 12 16) and two sections (amount to more

Actex 2015

Preface

P-8

than 300 pages) are especially devoted to these topics. Moreover, instead of treating the new

topics as orphans, we demonstrate, as far as possible, how they can be related to the old topics

in an exam setting. This is very important for you, because multiple learning outcomes can be

examined in one single exam question.

We have made our best effort to ensure that all topics in the syllabus are explained and practiced

in sufficient depth. For your reference, a detailed mapping between this study manual and the

official textbook is provided on pages P-10 to P-12.

Besides the topics specified in the exam syllabus, you also need to know a range of numerical

techniques in order to succeed. These techniques include, for example, Eulers method, which is

involved in SoAs Exam MLC Sample Multiple-Choice Question #299. We know that quite a

few of you have not even heard of Eulers method before, so we have prepared a special chapter

(Appendix 1, appended to the end of the study manual) to teach you all numerical techniques

required for this exam. In addition, whenever a numerical technique is used, we clearly point out

which technique it is, letting you follow our examples and exercises more easily.

Other distinguishing features of this study manual include:

We use graphics extensively. Graphical illustrations are probably the most effective way to

explain formulas involved in Exam MLC. The extensive use of graphics can also help you

remember various concepts and equations.

A sleek layout is used. The font size and spacing are chosen to let you feel more comfortable

in reading. Important equations are displayed in eye-catching boxes.

Rather than splitting the manual into tiny units, each of which tells you a couple of formulas

only, we have carefully grouped the exam topics into 17 chapters. Such a grouping allows

you to more easily identify the linkages between different concepts, which, as we mentioned

earlier, are essential for your success.

Instead of giving you a long list of formulas, we point out which formulas are the most

important. Having read this study manual, you will be able to identify the formulas you must

remember and the formulas that are just variants of the key ones.

We do not want to overwhelm you with verbose explanations. Whenever possible, concepts

and techniques are demonstrated with examples and integrated into the practice problems.

We write the practice problems and the mock exams in a similar format as the released exam

and sample questions. This will enable you to comprehend questions more quickly in the

real exam.

On page P-13, you will find a flow chart showing how different chapters of this manual are

connected to one another. You should first study Chapters 0 to 10 in order. Chapter 0 will give

you some background factual information; Chapters 1 to 4 will build you a solid foundation; and

Chapters 5 to 11 will get you to the core of the exam. You should then study Chapters 12 to 16

in any order you wish. Immediately after reading a chapter, do all practice problems we provide

for that chapter. Make sure that you understand every single practice problem. Finally, work on

the mock exams.

In Exam FM, you valued cash flows that are paid at some known future times. In Exam MLC,

by contrast, you are going to value cash flows that are paid at some unknown future times.

Specifically, the timings of the cash flows are dependent on the future lifetime of the underlying

individual. These cash flows are called life contingent cash flows, and the study of these cash

flows is called life contingencies.

It is obvious that an important part of life contingencies is the modeling of future lifetimes. In

this chapter, we are going to study how we can model future lifetimes as random variables. A

few simple probability concepts you learnt in Exam P will be used.

Let us begin with the age-at-death random variable, which is denoted by T0. The definition of T0

can be easily seen from the diagram below.

Actex 2015

C1-2

Death occurs

Age

T0

The age-at-death random variable can take any value within [0, ). Sometimes, we assume that

no individual can live beyond a certain very high age. We call that age the limiting age, and

denote it by . If a limiting age is assumed, then T0 can only take a value within [0, ].

We regard T0 as a continuous random variable, because it can, in principle, take any value on

the interval [0, ) if there is no limiting age or [0, ] if a limiting age is assumed. Of course, to

model T0, we need a probability distribution. The following notation is used throughout this

study guide (and in the examination).

F0(t) = Pr(T0 t) is the (cumulative) distribution function of T0.

f0(t) =

d

F0 (t ) is the probability density function of T0. For a small interval t, the product

dt

f0(t)t is the (approximate) probability that the age at death is in between t and t + t.

In life contingencies, we often need to calculate the probability that an individual will survive to

a certain age. This motivates us to define the survival function:

S0(t) = Pr(T0 > t) = 1 F0(t).

Note that the subscript 0 indicates that these functions are specified for the age-at-death

random variable (or equivalently, the future lifetime of a person age 0 now).

Not all functions can be regarded as survival functions. A survival function must satisfy the

following requirements:

1. S0(0) = 1. This means every individual can live at least 0 years.

2. S0( ) = 0 or lim S 0 (t ) = 0. This means that every individual must die eventually.

t

3. S0(t) is monotonically decreasing. This means that, for example, the probability of surviving

to age 80 cannot be greater than that of surviving to age 70.

Actex 2015

C1-3

Summing up, f0(t), F0(t) and S0(t) are related to one another as follows.

Note that because T0 is a continuous random variable, Pr(T0 = c) = 0 for any constant c. Now, let

us consider the following example.

Example 1.1

[Structural Question]

(a) Verify that S0(t) is a valid survival function.

(b) Find expressions for F0(t) and f0(t).

(c) Calculate the probability that T0 is greater than 30 and smaller than 60.

Solution

(a) First, we have S0(0) = 1 0/100 = 1.

Second, we have S0(100) = 1 100/100 = 0.

Third, the first derivative of S0(t) is 1/100, indicating that S0(t) is non-increasing.

Hence, S0(t) is a valid survival function.

(b) We have F0(t) = 1 S0(t) = t/100, for 0 t 100.

Also, we have and f0(t) =

d

F0(t) = 1/100, for 0 t 100.

(c) Pr(30 < T0 < 60) = S0(30) S0(60) = (1 30/100) (1 60/100) = 0.3.

1. 2 Future Lifetime Random Variable

Consider an individual who is age x now. Throughout this text, we use (x) to represent such an

individual. Instead of the entire lifetime of (x), we are often more interested in the future

lifetime of (x). We use Tx to denote the future lifetime random variable for (x). The definition of

Tx can be easily seen from the diagram below.

x + Tx

Now

Death

occurs

Tx

Age

[Note: For brevity, we may only display the portion starting from age x (i.e., time 0) in future

illustrations.]

If there is no limiting age, Tx can take any value within [0, ). If a limiting age is assumed, then

Tx can only take a value within [0, x]. We have to subtract x because the individual has

attained age x at time 0 already.

We let Sx(t) be the survival function for the future lifetime random variable. The subscript x

here indicates that the survival function is defined for a life who is age x now. It is important to

understand that when modeling the future lifetime of (x), we always know that the individual is

alive at age x. Thus, we may evaluate Sx(t) as a conditional probability:

S x (t ) = Pr(Tx > t ) = Pr(T0 > x + t | T0 > x)

1. 3 Actuarial Notation

For convenience, we have designated actuarial notation for various types of death and survival

probabilities.

Notation 1: t px

We use t px to denote the probability that a life age x now survives to t years from now. By

definition, we have

t px

When t = 1, we can omit the subscript on the left-hand-side; that is, we write 1px as px.

Notation 2: t qx

We use t qx to denote the probability that a life age x now dies before attaining age x + t. By

definition, we have

t qx

= Pr(Tx t) = Fx(t).

When t = 1, we can omit the subscript on the left-hand-side; that is, we write 1qx as qx.

Notation 3: t|u qx

We use t |u qx to denote the probability that a life age x now dies between ages x + t and x + t + u.

By definition, we have

t|u qx

Note that when we describe survival distributions, p always means a survival probability,

while q always means a death probability. The | between t and u means that the death

probability is deferred by t years. We read t | u as t deferred u. It is important to remember

the meanings of these three actuarial symbols. Let us study the following example.

Actex 2015

C1-7

Example 1.3

Express the probabilities associated with the following events in actuarial notation.

(a) A new born infant dies no later than age 45.

(b) A person age 20 now survives to age 38.

(c) A person age 57 now survives to age 60 but dies before attaining age 65.

Assuming that S0(t) = e0.0125t for t 0, evaluate the probabilities.

Solution

(a) The probability that a new born infant dies no later than age 45 can be expressed as

45q0.

Further, 45q0 = F0(45) = 1 S0(45) = 0.4302.

(b) The probability that a person age 20 now survives to age 38 can be expressed as 18p20. [Here

we have p for a survival probability, x = 20 and t = 38 20 = 18.]

Further, we have 18p20 = S20(18) =

S0 (38)

= 0.7985.

S0 (20)

(c) The probability that a person age 57 now survives to age 60 but dies before attaining age 65

can be expressed as

3|5q57.

60 57 = 3, and u = 65 60 = 5.]

Further, we have 3|5q57 = S57(3) S57(8) =

S0 (60)

S (65)

0

= 0.058357.

S0 (57)

S0 (57)

[ END ]

Other than their meanings, you also need to know how these symbols are related to one another.

Here are four equations that you will find very useful.

Equation 1: t px + t qx = 1

This equation arises from the fact that there are only two possible outcomes: dying within t

years or surviving to t years from now.

Actex 2015

C1-8

Equation 2: t+u px = t px u px+t

The meaning of this equation can be seen from the following diagram.

Survive from time t to t + u:

probability = u px+ t

probability = t px

0

(Age x)

t

(Age x + t)

t+u

probability = t+u px

Mathematically, we can prove this equation as follows:

t +u

px = S x (t + u ) =

S0 ( x + t + u ) S0 ( x + t ) S0 ( x + t + u )

=

= S x (t ) S x +t (u ) = t px u px +t .

S0 ( x)

S0 ( x)

S0 ( x + t )

We have t|u qx = Pr(t < Tx t + u) = Fx( t + u) Fx( t ) = t|u qx = t+u qx t qx.

Also, t|u qx = Pr(t < Tx t + u) = Sx(t) Sx(t + u) = t px t+u px.

Equation 4: t|u qx = t px u qx+t

The reasoning behind this equation can be understood from the following diagram:

Survive from time 0 to time t:

probability = t px

Death occurs: prob.= uqx+t

Let us go through the following example to see how these equations are applied.

(ii)

px+1 = 0.985

(iii)

(a) px+3

(b) 2px

(c) 2px+1

(d) 3px

(e)

Actex 2015

C1-10

Solution

(a) px+3 = 1 qx+3

= 1 0.02 = 0.98

(b) 2px = px px+1

= 0.99 0.985 = 0.97515

(c) Consider 3px+1 = 2px+1 px+3

0.95 = 2px+1 0.98

2px+1 = 0.9694

(d) 3px = px 2px+1

= 0.99 0.9694 = 0.9597

(e)

1|2qx

= px 2qx+1

= px (1 2px+1)

= 0.99 (1 0.9694) = 0.0303

[ END ]

In practice, actuaries use Excel extensively, so a discrete version of the future lifetime random

variable would be easier to work with. We define

K x = Tx ,

where y means the integral part of y. For example, 1 = 1 , 4.3 = 4 and 10.99 = 10. We

call Kx the curtate future lifetime random variable.

It is obvious that Kx is a discrete random variable, since it can only take non-negative integral

values (i.e., 0, 1, 2, ). The probability mass function for Kx can be derived as follows:

Pr(Kx = 0) = Pr(0 Tx < 1) = qx,

Pr(Kx = 1) = Pr(1 Tx < 2) = 1|1qx,

Pr(Kx = 2) = Pr(2 Tx < 3) = 2|1qx,

Actex 2015

C1-11

Inductively, we have

F O R M U L A

Probability Mass Function for Kx

Pr(Kx = k) = k|1qx,

k = 0, 1, 2,

(1.8)

Pr(Kx k) = Pr(Tx < k + 1) = k+1qx,

for k = 0, 1, 2, .

It is just that simple! Now, let us study the following example, which is taken from a previous

SoA Exam.

For (x):

(ii)

k = 0, 1, 2, , 9

(A) 1.1

(B) 1.2

(C) 1.3

(D) 1.4

(E) 1.5

Solution

The notation means minimum. So here K 3 means min(K, 3). For convenience, we let

W = min(K, 3). Our job is to calculate Var(W). Note that the only possible values that W can

take are 0, 1, 2, and 3.

To accomplish our goal, we need the probability function of W, which is related to that of K.

The probability function of W is derived as follows:

Pr(W = 0) = Pr(K = 0) = qx = 0.1

Pr(W = 1) = Pr(K = 1) = 1|qx

= px qx+1

Actex 2015

C1-12

= (1 qx)qx+1

= (1 0.1) 0.2 = 0.18

Pr(W = 2) = Pr(K = 2) = 2|qx

= 2px qx+ 2 = px px+1 qx+ 2

= (1 qx)(1 qx+1) qx+ 2

= 0.9 0.8 0.3 = 0.216

From the probability function for W, we obtain E(W) and E(W 2 ) as follows:

1. 5 Force of Mortality

In Exam FM, you learnt a concept called the force of interest, which measures the amount of

interest credited in a very small time interval. By using this concept, you valued, for example,

annuities that make payouts continuously. In this exam, you will encounter continuous life

contingent cash flows. To value such cash flows, you need a function that measures the

probability of death over a very small time interval. This function is called the force of mortality.

Consider an individual age x now. The force of mortality for this individual t years from now is

denoted by x+t or x(t). At time t, the (approximate) probability that this individual dies within a

very small period of time t is x+t t. The definition of x+t can be seen from the following

diagram.

Actex 2015

C1-13

Prob. = Sx(t)

Death occurs

during t to t + t:

Prob. x+ t t

Time from now

t

t + t

Prob. (measured at time 0) fx(t)t

From the diagram, we can also tell that fx(t) t = Sx(t)x+t t. It follows that

fx(t) = Sx(t)x+t = t px x+ t .

This is an extremely important relation, which will be used throughout this study manual.

Recall that f x (t ) = Fx (t ) = S x (t ) . This yields the following equation:

x +t =

S x (t )

,

S x (t )

which allows us to find the force of mortality when the survival function is known.

Recall that

Not all functions can be used for the force of mortality. We require the force of mortality to

satisfy the following two criteria:

(i)

(ii)

x +u du = .

Criterion (i) follows from the fact that x+t t is a measure of probability, while Criterion (ii)

follows from the fact that lim S x (t ) = 0.

t

Note that the subscript x + t indicates the age at which death occurs. So you may use x to

denote the force of mortality at age x. For example, 20 refers to the force of mortality at age 20.

The two criteria above can then be written alternatively as follows:

(i)

x 0 for all x 0.

(ii)

x dx = .

The following two specifications of the force of mortality are often used in practice.

Gompertz law

x = Bcx

Makehams law

x = A + Bcx

In the above, A, B and c are constants such that A B, B > 0 and c > 1.

Now, let us study a longer structural question that integrates different concepts in this chapter.

Example 1.10

[Structural Question]

The function

18000 110 x x 2

18000

has been proposed for the survival function for a mortality model.

(a) State the implied limiting age .

(b) Verify that the function satisfies the conditions for the survival function S0(x).

(c) Calculate 20p0.

(d) Calculate the survival function for a life age 20.

(e) Calculate the probability that a life aged 20 will die between ages 30 and 40.

(f) Calculate the force of mortality at age 50.

Solution

(a) Since

18000 110 2

S 0 ( ) =

18000

We have 2 + 110 18000 = 0 ( 90)( + 200) = 0 = 90 or = 200 (rejected).

Hence, the implied limiting age is 90.

(b) We need to check the following three conditions:

(i)

S 0 (0) =

According to Statement (viii), it is assumed in calculating the cost of insurance that the

force of mortality is constant for all ages. Hence, qt* = 1 e. This is a specified amount

plus the account value (Type B) policy. Because there is no corridor factor requirement,

we can write the cost of insurance for year t as

CoIt = qt* vq X = (1 e )(1.061)(50000),

which is a constant that is independent of t. We let CoI = CoI1 = CoI2. The account value

at the end of year 1 is given by

AV1 = (AV0 + P1 EC1 CoI)(1 + i1c ).

Hence, we have

13900 = (12000 + 0.95 2000 50 CoI)(1.05),

which gives CoI = 611.904762.

The account value at the end of year 2 is given by

AV2 = (AV1 + P2 EC2 CoI)(1 + i2c )

= (13900 + 0.95 2000 50 611.904762)(1.05) = 15895.

For a universal life policy with a no lapse guarantee, the death benefit cover continues

even if the account value declines to zero, provided that the policyholder pays a prespecified minimum premium at each premium date. Hence, Statement (I) is FALSE.

This guarantee comes into effect when the account value (AVt1) and the premium (Pt) are

not sufficient to cover the cost of insurance (CoIt). Hence, the guarantee is more likely to

come into effect if the cost of insurance is higher.

If the interest rate used to calculate the cost of insurance is smaller, the resulting cost of

insurance is higher, and hence the no-lapse guarantee is more likely to come into effect.

Statement (II) is TRUE.

If the death probability used to calculate the cost of insurance is smaller, the resulting cost

of insurance is smaller, and hence the no-lapse guarantee is less likely to come into effect.

Statement (III) is TRUE.

Let P be the gross annual premium.

APV of benefits = APV of the return of premium benefit + APV of the deferred annuity

APV of benefit = P ( IA)140:10| + 1000010| a&&40 .

APV of expenses = Initial expenses + APV of renewal expenses

The sum insured during policy year 20 is S + RB19 = 10000 + 3165.5 = 13165.5.

We are given 19V = 4765.0 and 20V = 5210.5.

Also, Div19 = B19A69 = 204 0.4997 = 101.9388.

Hence, 19V = 4765.0 + 101.9388 = 4866.9388.

0.981 0.925 5210.5

The dividend is Div20 = 32.9826 0.9 = 29.6844.

The extra death benefit that can be purchased using the bonus is

B20 = 29.6844 / A70 = 29.6844 / 0.515 = 57.64.

The compound reversionary bonus rate for year 20 is

b20 = B20 / S20 = 57.64 / 13165.5 = 0.44%.

From (i) and (iii), we have p x( ) = 0.75. Then by

Expected number of survivors out of the 0LI = 1000 0LH infected people is

E(2LI | 0LH) = 0.623875(1000 0LH).
