Actuarial Valuation

Actuarial Valuation

An Actuarial Valuation is a comparison of a pension plan’s assets and liabilities performed by an actuary. We require Actuarial valuations to assess the long-term viability of a defined benefit pension plan. Also, we can use plan sponsors as a decision-making tool. Read more about ind as 19 and AS15 R

As we know benefit pension plan has financial commitments that will take over many years. Also according to our current data, new retirees are to receive their pensions for approximately 30 years, with their beneficiaries receiving the benefit for an additional 4.8 years. Because they will not be making contributions during this time, the plan sponsors must ensure that TRAF has enough assets to make those payments when they become due. We must read about Actuarial Valuation of Gratuity.

Actuarial Valuation Types


The actuarial valuation prepared on a “going-concern” basis is the focus of TRAF. Also a going-concern valuation evaluates a pension plan under the assumption that it will continue indefinitely into the future. 



We assume and predict many future events when performing an actuarial valuation or projecting the funded status over time. These assumptions include, among others:

  • How long will representatives work?

  • What percentage raises they will receive

  • When will they retire? How long will individuals live?

  • How much will TRAF revenue from its investments?

Before selecting each actuarial assumption, significant time and effort is expended so that TRAF can estimate the plan’s future financial condition. However, that actual experience may differ from the assumptions made. Also TRAF conducts stress testing and sensitivity analysis on key assumptions to better understand the impact of experience that differs from the actuarial assumptions.

Actuarial Valuation Terminologies:


1. Accrued Assets;

2. Accrued Liabilities;

3. Future Assets;

4. Future Liabilities;

5. Surplus/Deficit; and

6. Funded status.

Market Practice Regarding Actuarial Valuation Of Leave Schemes?


Companies, unlike gratuities, have a great deal of leeway in designing the terms and rules of their leave benefit schemes. Companies, for example, can decide

  • How many leaves to award each year (subject to any regulatory minimum),

  • Whether these leaves can be carried forward and for how long, and so on.

  • Unused leaves can be Encashed, and

  • Whether they can be Encashed while in service or only on exit.
