Default m-thly UDD annuities question

Under the UDD assumption we know:
-> a-double dot (m) = alpha(m)*a-double dot - beta(m)

Is there another relationship between like this one for the second moment of a monthly annuity under the UDD assumption?

Thanks so much!

Why would you want this, when the variance of the a-double-dot(m) random variable looks just like the formula for the variance when m = 1, except you put a superscript m on every term?

I'm unable to find the variance of a monthly annuity given a-double dot, the second moment of a-double dot, and the interest rate. Could you elaborate on the formula you are mentioning please? Thanks so much.

I meant the formula for the variance in terms of Ax and double-force Ax and the discount rate d. Just replace each by its mthly version.

When you say you are given "the second moment of a-double dot", do you really mean the second moment? I suspect that you mean that you are given double-force a-double dot, which is quite different, from which you can easily get double-force A. And are you given these for annual annuities or mthly annuities? I need to know exactly what you're given. Perhaps you could state the problem precisely.
