Calculation principles enable the development of the actuarial pricing process in the insurance sector both of life and of non-life. Among all principles assessed in this article we have chosen those verifying the so-called coherency criterion (Artzner, P. Delbaen, F. Eber, JM. Heath, D. (1999)), performing the theoretical-mathematic reasoning of such coherency criterion for all of them. Once those principles, more specifically two – the principle of net premium and the principle based on the distortion function in the form of power - are applied for the calculation of the risk premium both to a general and specific extent they will be applied to the Makeham Law for insurances with death cover: the whole life insurance.
