In this paper we present a new method for simulating integrals of stochastic processes. We focus on the nontrivial case of time integrals, conditional on the state variable levels at the endpoints of a time interval, through a moment-based probability distribution construction. We present different classes of models with important uses in finance, medicine, epidemiology, climatology, bioeconomics and physics. The method is generally applicable in well-posed moment problem settings. We study its convergence, point out its advantages through a series of numerical experiments and compare its performance against existing schemes.
