The sum assured should be able to increase/decrease by a constant compound rate
or a fixed monetary amount.
The spreadsheet should also calculate; for all the policies given above, the net premium; allowing for premiums either payable annually in advance or mthly in advance, for life or for a certain fixed term (if shorter) or as a single premium.
