Abstract

We study the effects of jump diffusion transition intensities on a life insurance and disability annuity. To do so, we use a multi-states Markov chain with multiple decrement. Assuming independent statewise intensities, we evaluate the prospective reserve for this scheme where the insured life is in Active or Disabled state at inception, respectively. We also examine the components of the prospective reserves by changing the relevant parameters of the transition intensities, which are the jump size, the average frequency of jumps as well as the diffusion parameters, assuming deterministic rate of interest. The computation of the reserve sensitivity with their figures are provided.
