Abstract: This paper proposes a new product, the Variable Life Care Annuity with Guaranteed Lifetime Withdrawal Benefits (LCA-GLWB), and designs an efficient valuation algorithm. This innovative product provides a comprehensive retirement solution for both longevity risk and long-term care protection. It includes the benefits of guaranteed income streams with downside risk protection and long-term care expenses for retirees. However, the valuation of this type of product is both complex and time-consuming. In this paper, we propose a Monte Carlo valuation algorithm that uses the variance reduction technique. The numerical results indicate that the proposed valuation algorithm is very efficient under a broad range of asset return models. The proposed algorithm provides a general approach for the rapid valuation of similar products and can help provide life insurance companies offering innovative products with an appropriate valuation tool.
