Sec. 12529. Board of Actuaries

-STATUTE-

(a) Actuarial Responsibility. - The Board of Actuaries shall have

the actuarial responsibility for the insurance program.

(b) Valuations and Premium Recommendations. - The Board of

Actuaries shall carry out periodic actuarial valuations of the

benefits under the insurance program and determine a premium rate

methodology for the Secretary to use in setting premium rates for

the insurance program. The Board shall conduct the first valuation

and determine a premium rate methodology not later than six months

after the insurance program is established.

(c) Effects of Changed Benefits. - If at the time of any

actuarial valuation under subsection (b) there has been a change in

benefits under the insurance program that has been made since the

last such valuation and such change in benefits increases or

decreases the present value of amounts payable from the Fund, the

Board of Actuaries shall determine a premium rate methodology, and

recommend to the Secretary a premium schedule, for the liquidation

of any liability (or actuarial gain to the Fund) resulting from

such change and any previous such changes so that the present value

of the sum of the scheduled premium payments (or reduction in

payments that would otherwise be made) equals the cumulative

increase (or decrease) in the present value of such benefits.

(d) Actuarial Gains or Losses. - If at the time of any such

valuation the Board of Actuaries determines that there has been an

actuarial gain or loss to the Fund as a result of changes in

actuarial assumptions since the last valuation or as a result of

any differences, between actual and expected experience since the

last valuation, the Board shall recommend to the Secretary a

premium rate schedule for the amortization of the cumulative gain

or loss to the Fund resulting from such changes in assumptions and

any previous such changes in assumptions or from the differences in

actual and expected experience, respectively, through an increase

or decrease in the payments that would otherwise be made to the

Fund.

(e) Insufficient Assets. - If at any time liabilities of the Fund

exceed assets of the Fund as a result of members of the Ready

Reserve being ordered to active duty as described in section

12521(2) of this title, and funds are unavailable to pay benefits

completely, the Secretary shall request the President to submit to

Congress a request for a special appropriation to cover the

unfunded liability. If appropriations are not made to cover an

unfunded liability in any fiscal year, the Secretary shall reduce

the amount of the benefits paid under the insurance program to a

total amount that does not exceed the assets of the Fund expected

to accrue by the end of such fiscal year. Benefits that cannot be

paid because of such a reduction shall be deferred and may be paid

only after and to the extent that additional funds become

available.

(f) Definition of Present Value. - The Board of Actuaries shall

define the term ''present value'' for purposes of this subsection.
