View Full Version : UDD In, Balducci & CFM Out

Do you know the reason why SOA excluded the Hyperbolic & CFM assumptions in Exam M syllabus? Is this an indication that the Uniform Distribution of Deaths is the best assumption to use for fractional ages among the 3?

My guess is that we have enough formulas to memorize/learn for fractional ages. Also, in the workplace, I would think that they use the UDD for fractional ages for that makes the most sense.
Make sure you learn all the other formulas using constant force. Those will be on the exam. (Whole life insurance, Term insurance, Endowment insurance, whole life annuties, etc...)
I'll be so happy if I pass this exam on my first attempt. I'm carrying around waaaaaaaaaay to many notecards.
