For independent identically distributed bivariate random vectors (X1, Y1), (X2, Y2), ... and for large t the distribution of X1 +...+ XN(t) is approximated by asymptotic expansions. Here N(t) is the counting process with lifetimes Y1, Y2,.... Similar expansions are derived for multivariate X1. Furthermore, local asymptotic expansions are valid for the distribution of f(X1)+ ...+ f(XN) when N is large and nonrandom, and Xi, i=1, 2,..., is a discrete strongly mixing Markov chain.
