Actuarial Gain or Loss

A pension plan incurs actuarial gains or losses when the actual experience of the pension plan does not exactly match assumptions. For example, an actuarial gain would occur if assets earned 10 percent for a given year and the assumed rate of return in the actuarial valuation was 8 percent.
