The Actuarial Service Platform (ASP) of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the International Social Security Association (ISSA) aims to support social security institutions and health administrations in carrying out actuarial work. It contains a set of actuarial and non-actuarial calculation, simulation and analysis tools.

The actuarial models are ILO/PENSIONS and ILO/HEALTH. They conform to traditional actuarial methodology, with added flexibility to work in a variety of contexts (e.g. multi-regime, flexible and dynamic parameters and scenarios), are user-friendly, do not require programming and have a faster learning curve than existing actuarial models. They also allow institutions to store their data for specific simulations and have private workspaces to ensure the confidentiality of information.

Join this ILO-ISSA webinar that will introduce the Actuarial Service Platform and the modalities of interaction and problem-solving of the ILO/PENSIONS tool, and present country experiences.
