The National Association of Insurance Commissioners has released the text of the proposed Standard Valuation Law revisions.
This comes after a recent vote by members of the Life Insurance and Annuities Committee of the NAIC to endorse the proposed revisions.
Before the proposed changes can take effect, they must be approved by the NAIC’s executive committee and by the NAIC’s plenary-the body that includes all voting members of the NAIC.
The SVL is a model that states can use when setting standards for life reserve calculations. If the proposed revisions are approved, the SVL would embody a “principles-based” approach to calculating reserves.
