Default Reserve Formals quick question

Sorry if this question has been asked already.

Is the following correct:

If I use the insurance formula
(A_x+t - A_x) / (1 - A_x)

do i multiply that by the Death Benefit for the reserve.

Also, If I use the annuity formula
1 - (a_x+t / a_x)

do i multiply that by the Premium for the same reserve?

Thanks.

You multiply both by the Death Benefit.


If you take the basic (prospective) formula for determining a net reserve:
Reserve @ time x+t = BA(x+t) - Pa(x+t)

*where B is benefit and P is premium

and begin substituting for P and either A(x+t) or a(x+t), then you will get to the annuity reserve and insurance reserve formulas.

You will see both formulas multiply by the Death Benefit at the end.
