Why do I need an actuarial study?

An actuarial study has many uses. To name a few—state or regulatory requirements may require you to complete an actuarial analysis, whether for the calculation of contingent liabilities related to a self-insured retention program, post-employment employee benefit program, or other balance sheet reporting items.

What can a consulting actuary provide? Actuaries estimate funding levels for insurance and retirement programs. An analysis of past and future liabilities is necessary to ensure proper financial reporting and program funding. There are several standards that establish specific criteria, which an analysis from Sigma will satisfy.

Sigma provides actuarial services to governmental entities, associations, self-insureds, trusts and commercial insureds (in a wide variety of healthcare, retail, entertainment, public entity, service and manufacturing industries) throughout the country. We have extensive experience with a broad range of insurance coverages, with specialization in workers’ compensation, automobile, general, products and professional liabilities, as well as employee benefits.
