This is a video recording of a webinar we held in October 2020.

US pensioners are diverse, but traditional pension plan mortality assumptions assume all participants are the same. This webinar recording presents a case study in how more granular longevity assumptions can assist in making better decisions.  

Like many pension plans, the Minnesota Public Employees Retirement Association is considering decisions that will affect its finances for decades. Its Executive Director, Doug Anderson, seeks a sustainable system and wants the decisions to be based on the best possible evidence. 

Douglas Anderson (unrelated!) founder of Club Vita, will give examples of how important insights that flow from considering the longevity characteristics of sub-groups of participants can significantly alter your perspective. 

Amy Timmons of Segal will chair the discussion, drawing on her past experience to pose questions from a trustee perspective. 

We hope you'll join us!
