Actuarial Funding Policies and Practices for Public Pension Plans

The Conference of Consulting Actuaries’ Public Plans Community (CCA PPC) released a white paper titled "Actuarial Funding Policies and Practices for Public Pension Plans" to provide guidance to policymakers and other interested parties on the development of actuarially based funding policies for public pension plans. The CCA PPC includes over 50 leading actuaries whose firms are responsible for the actuarial services provided to the majority of public-sector retirement systems in the US. All of the major actuarial firms serving the public sector are represented in the CCA PPC as well as in-house actuaries from several state plans. As a result, the CCA PPC represents a broad cross section of public-sector actuaries with extensive experience providing valuation and consulting services to public plans, and it is that experience that provides the knowledge base for this paper.
