Expenses - Oh. I think there was a $15 number someone in the module exercises and I trended that.

Premium - I'm not quite sure I understand what you did. I got my premium from one of the data tabs - it was given to us as a pmpm and I adjusted it for the change in membership demographics. Then applied trend.

I'm just starting on this task, and it looks like it's completely different now.
Asking us to calculate a sample rate for an LTC product. Anybody currently taking a crack at this?

I think purchased the module in early October. I still have the old one. No way to know if that's a good thing or a bad thing though

For the LTC product, any thoughts on how to construct the Voluntary lapses and the Mortality? Just started looking at it.

For people still working with the old EOM, I have a question about the scenarios:

When they say to use +/-2.5%, do they mean,

[normal trend] * [1 +/- 2.5%], or
[normal trend] + 2.5%, or
[raw claims trend + 2.5%] * [other factors] ?

The case study from page 120 has some rounding error, so it is hard to know exactly, but I am thinking the first option listed above is the correct way to go. Appreciate any opinions on this!

Thanks
