The pensions actuary working with deﬁned beneﬁt pensions must determine appropriate contribution rates to meet the beneﬁts promised, using models that allow for the working patterns of the employees.

When one company with a pension plan takes over another, the actuary must assist with determining the best way to allocate the assets from the two plans, and perhaps how to merge the beneﬁts.
This individual could have died before reaching age x – the probability of this was Pr[T0 < x] – but has survived. Now that the individual has survived to age x, so that T0 > x, his or her future lifetime is represented by Tx and the age at death is now x + Tx . If the individual dies within t years from now, then Tx ≤ t and T0 ≤ x + t. Loosely speaking, we require the events [Tx ≤ t] and [T0 ≤ x + t] to be equivalent, given that the individual survives to age x. We achieve this by making the following assumption for all x ≥ 0 and for all t > 0 Pr[Tx ≤ t] = Pr[T0 ≤ x + t|T0 > x].
