Most corporations use external actuaries and retirement consultants to support their pension plans.
Many of our clients have used the same actuary for years – sometimes decades. In many cases, the actuary knows more about your pension plan than any internal employee.
Because the relationship is often so long-lasting, you want to pick the right actuary or retirement consultant from the beginning. You also want to have clarity about what’s included in the scope of services, something that can get lost over time.
We infuse a fresh perspective into your actuarial services, helping to:
Negotiate what’s included and expected in the scope of services
Determine what’s appropriate for frozen plans vs. active plans
Show due diligence. Our actuaries can review the work product to ensure it is accurate and complete
Improve communications and provide new ideas
