The Multiemployer Retirement Plan Landscape: A Fifteen-Year Look (2003-2017)

Horizon Actuarial Services has partnered with the International Foundation of Employee Benefits Plans (IFEBP) to conduct a study of U.S. multiemployer defined benefit pension plans. The study covers multiemployer plans in all industries, building upon the similar study of construction industry plans that Horizon Actuarial originally conducted with the Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA) in 2012.


The report – The Multiemployer Retirement Plan Landscape: A Fifteen-Year Look (2003-2017) – is available at the International Foundation’s website (link below). The report provides a look at historical trends for U.S. multiemployer retirement plans for the fifteen-year period from 2003 to 2017. 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.


This is the sixth edition of the report to include information on multiemployer defined contribution (DC) retirement plans, as well as multiemployer defined benefit (DB) pension plans.


The report can be purchased through the IFEBP's bookstore.

Please contact your Horizon Actuarial consultant if you have any questions.
