Standard life contingency formulas are shown to have matrix analogues. The derivation of these multidimensional forms permits simple solution to multiple contingency problems, including moves in and out of employment, insurance, marriage, sickness, and retirement. Awkward and inaccurate approximations now commonly used can thus be replaced by matrix formulas readily manipulated by computer.
