Default RBC calculator or spreadsheet... can someone point me to one?

You'd think the NAIC would have one on their website... am I missing it?

I don't think you're missing it. I think they don't have such a spreadsheet available on their website. You could try contacting any or all of the vendors listed at the link below and ask them if they'll give you a freebie. My guess is you probably won't get anything from them for free, but then again, you'll never know unless you try. Also, if you do contact any of them, don't be surprised that they don't have a spreadsheet - what they have is probably proprietary software that they usually sell to insurance companies and maybe also to regulators.

The NAIC doesn't give out much of anything for free. Maybe drafts of proposed regulations, but never the final version.

At companies where I have worked, somebody in Modeling dept. or in corporate, typically developed a spreadsheet to approximate RBC for planning purposes.

I have always loved these standards setters who apply new standards / regulations on you but refuse to tell you what these new standards are unless you pay them money.
Yes, I am looking at you IASB....
