Actuarial Services

The Office of Actuarial Services (OAS), under the direction of the Executive Director of Actuarial Services (VA’s Chief Actuary), provides coordination and oversight in the development of actuarial estimates, policies and services for the Department.  As part of VA’s Office of Management, OAS is responsible for developing and monitoring actuarial models to support the mission of ensuring maximum transparency and accountability with respect to actuarial benefit liabilities reported in VA’s financial statements.  OAS also supports the Actuarial and Benefit Liability Governance Board, Office of Budget, Office of Finance, VBA and VHA with their cost projections, trend analysis, and cost estimates for proposed legislation.

How OAS supports others

OAS has enthusiastically embraced VA’s I-DEA initiatives (inclusion, diversity, equity, access), and strives to make OAS a top-tier destination for qualified actuaries who are looking for a meaningful, interesting and challenging career in a collaborative and supportive environment.
