Interim Reserves

Is linear interpolation good enough to know here? Seems like between that and exact method, linear is far easier and applies to other topics/products. But given it's such a small percentage of potential problems would SOA ask for one specifically?

Hey Isaiah, Sebastian here. I have not came across any linear interpolation interim reserves questions. Most interim reserve questions I’ve seen have used the exact method (e.g (Reserve at time 10 + premium - Recurring Expense)(1+I)^.4 = .4q10 x (DB + settlement expense) + .4p10 x Reserve at time 10.4.
