These ISSA-ILO Actuarial Guidelines include the principles that social security institutions should consider in relation to actuarial work undertaken for social security schemes. They are not intended either as a detailed actuarial manual or as standards of practice. Their goal is to guide social security institutions in the “what” to consider but not the question of “how”.
Therefore, as part of the support to social security institutions, the ISSA and the ILO have developed supporting material, including manuals (such as the ILO document Internal guidelines for actuarial analysis of a national social security pension scheme), examples of good practice, external references and case studies that will assist social security institutions in translating these principles into practice.
These supporting materials can be accessed in a separate document and via links on the website dedicated to the Guidelines.
