Current Responsibility

Kathryn Hunter is a consulting actuary in the Portland, Oregon, practice of Milliman. She joined the firm in June 2001.

Experience

Kathryn's pension and retiree medical experience is mainly focused on public sector plans. She has been involved in all aspects of actuarial valuations, benefit calculations, benefit statement preparation, development of projection models, experience studies, and special projects for post-retirement medical plans and defined benefit pension plans.

Kathryn has done extensive work with the Florida Retirement System, including numerous special studies requested during the annual legislative sessions, the three most recent five-year experience studies, and the annual actuarial valuations of the State's defined benefit plan./p>

Biennially, Kathryn completes comprehensive analyses of OPEB liabilities under GASB 45 for the Florida Division of State Group Insurance and similar GASB 27 (now GASB 67) valuations of the Florida Health Insurance Subsidy. She leads many other GASB 45 valuations for municipalities in Florida, California, Oregon, and elsewhere.

Kathryn's experience includes designing and programming interactive models for retiree medical and pension clients. Such models are used to forecast multi-year cost analysis under varying assumptions, project the effects of demographic changes to employee benefits plans, and present fund valuation results.

Kathryn also has more than 10 years of ERISA Title IV experience, which has included work on appeals cases and plan termination cases for the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC). Her experience includes calculating guaranteed benefits and communicating pension matters in writing to the PBGC and plan participants.

Other clients with whom she currently works include the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority, Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, Beaverton School District, Oregon, and Gresham-Barlow School District, Oregon. On an annual basis, Kathryn leads the projects requested by these clients, such as actuarial valuations, benefit calculations and special studies.
