If you see something in an issue that you'd like to discuss, just get in touch


The Assessment and Disclosure of Risk Associated with Measuring Pension Obligations and Determining Pension Plan Contributions, known as ASOP No. 51, requires actuaries to identify and assess risks that may reasonably be anticipated to significantly affect a pension plan’s future financial condition. 

Here are some examples of risks faced by multiemployer pension plans:

  • Investment (the potential that investment returns will be different than expected),
  • Longevity (the possibility that retirees may live longer than projected by the actuary),
  • Employment and contribution levels, and
  • Those associated with non-payment of withdrawal liability.

This issue of Ideas looks at the requirements introduced by ASOP No. 51.
