The inaugural version of the report – The Multiemployer Defined Benefit Pension Plan Landscape: A Ten-Year Look (2002-2011) – is available at the International Foundation’s website at www.ifebp.org.
The report provides a look at historical trends for all U.S. multiemployer defined benefit plans for the ten-year period from 2002 to 2011. It will help plan trustees, professional service providers, and policymakers gain a better understanding of these plans and their environment.
The report may also serve as a useful comparison tool, enabling trustees and advisors to understand how their plans compare with others with respect to demographics, cash flows, investments, and funding.
Horizon Actuarial and the International Foundation are working on a companion report focusing on multiemployer defined contribution pension plans; that report is scheduled to be released later in 2014.
Please contact your Horizon Actuarial consultant if you have any questions.
