View Full Version : Nondeduction Reserve
In the book of VLIL (4 ed), it is said that the nondeduction reserve for n-year endorsement is tV(n-year term)*(m-1)/2m*P(n-year endorsement). Sorry that I cannot understand this formula and there is no explanation about it in the book. Could anyone help me with it please?

Surely you mean "endowment" both places instead of "endorsement".
It is a term insurance reserve because there is a benefit (not deducting the remainder of the premium) only if death occurs before a certain date (the endowment date). Death benefits for a limited period only indicate term insurance. (and it would not be an endowment reserve, which also includes death coverage for only a limited period, because there is no corresponding benefit if the insured survives to the end).
How much benefit is provided upon death? On average (m-1)/2m * the total premium will not be deducted. So you need a term insurance reserve for that much benefit.
Maybe the formula could be slightly more sophisticated, but that's the idea.
Yeah, a serious typo. SHould be endowment. Seeing too many endorsements causes this error perhaps :)
