Non-Tabular Discount 10
Tabular Discount in Reserves 10


You just have to figure out which risk category (R0...R5) each RBC charge goes into. Then apply the basic formula for aggregating risks.


This is straightforward except for 3 items:

Reinsurance recoverable is split 50/50 between R3 and R4.

Asset concentration can be split in any proportion between R1 and R2.
(I chose 100% for R2)

Other non-insurance subs can go into R1, or R2.
(There is not enough information provided to determine. I chose R1)   thx beta_183!



    PHS = Policyholder Surplus

    NTD = Non-Tabular Discount

    TD = Tabular Discount (on medical reserves only)

Trick: This problem doesn't specify whether the tabular discount is medical or indemnity, but the examiner's report solution assumes the given tabular discount should be subtracted. Note that in (2014.Spring #20), the problem stated that the tabular discount was indemnity and points were deducted if you subtracted that amount from surplus to get TAC.


You cannot calculate the RBC Ratio because you aren't given a specific value for TAC (Total Adjusted Capital)

RBC charge 987,654

    HIGH end of surplus range 789,123
