Actuarial Gains and Losses
The actual amount a company pays on its pensions compared to previous estimates. An actuarial gain occurs if the company pays less than it thought it would, while an actuarial loss happens if it pays more than expected. Actuarial gains and losses may result in a change to a company's actuarial assumptions. See also: Actuarial adjustment.
