Pension and Benefits Analysis

State and local governments across the country face a seemingly intractable problem: high and rising obligations due to pension and retiree health care benefits. AEG performs actuarial analysis, customized to the benefits and funding requirements of any pension fund, to estimate the current trajectory of possible outcomes, and how proposed reforms will affect retirees, active members, future employees, and taxpayers. AEG analyses go beyond a typical actuarial valuation and answer questions like, What will happen if our investment returns are low? How will a rash of early retirements change our outlook? What’s the best way to structure this buyout?
