Objectives

Objectives

The ISSA Guidelines on Actuarial Work in Social Security are written for actuaries and other social security professionals undertaking actuarial work for social security schemes, as well as social security institutions, policy-makers and other stakeholders overseeing or reviewing actuarial work.

The objectives of the guidelines are to provide guidance to these different stakeholders in their work as it relates to the planning, management, fi nancing and provision of social security benefi ts. The guidelines are structured to provide a list of issues to consider and recommendations in the carrying out of these duties. These duties will vary according to the stakeholder concerned and may include performing actuarial calculations, providing or formulating policy advice, supervision, reporting, management and communication.

The main objectives are therefore to:

1. Promote good practice in relation to actuarial work undertaken by, and for, social security institutions and to support efforts to improve accuracy, consistency and comparability of actuarial work.

2. Provide guidance for the procedures carried out by actuaries in their work.

3. Facilitate the work of institutions in their governance procedures relating to actuarial work.

4. Improve the efficiency of actuarial procedures.

5. Provide practical assistance to institutions to facilitate their compliance with actuarial standards.

6. Provide guidance to individuals or bodies responsible for policy issues and regulation on actuarial involvement.

The objectives of the training course are:

• To equip participants with a broad knowledge of the key issues relating to the actuarial work as detailed in the ISSA Actuarial Work in Social Security Guidelines.

• To develop a fi rm understanding of the main roles and responsibilities of actuaries in the field of social security.

• To support participants’ refl ection on the application of the ISSA Actuarial Work in Social Security Guidelines in their own organizations.

• To facilitate the formation of a network of practitioners with an understanding of the ISSA Guidelines.
