Actuarial Adjustment

In insurance and pensions, a change made to a company's premiums, reserves, or finances based on actual or expected changes to the benefits it must pay out. For example, if a disproportionate number of pensioners retire early, the company providing their pensions must adjust its reserves downward and/or its premiums upward to account for the benefits it must pay before it expected to do so. A company may also make actuarial adjustments to benefits themselves; for example, those persons retiring early may find their monthly pension payments are less than expected.
