3-B-1 - Demographic Assumptions Setting Post-COVID

The selection of mortality and other demographic assumptions has always been central to the role of the actuary. The altering dynamics brought about by COVID such as the “War for Talent”, the advent of remote & flexible work environments, and the potential long term COVID effects may change the demographic landscape as we know it. Employers may not only experience increased turnover, but also see changing retirement and mortality improvement patterns in the future. Our presenters discuss these demographic assumptions in the context of the current landscape and changing environment, with a focus on how we can best help clients understand and manage their risks.
