Current Responsibility

Maria is a research associate with Milliman's Employee Benefits Research Group in Washington, D.C. She joined the firm in 2008.


Maria's responsibilities as a research associate include tracking federal legislative and regulatory activity affecting the full scope of employee benefits, as well as compensation and related issues, and keeping Milliman consultants apprised of emerging developments. She is involved in the creation of internal information resources, assists with Research's publications, and is an active participant in external employee benefits groups.

Prior to joining Milliman, Maria worked for 25 years at an employee benefits consulting firm, serving as governmental affairs director during her last two years. In that capacity, she tracked news, legislation, and regulations affecting employer-sponsored retirement and health plans; contributed to internal publications aimed at keeping consultants and clients informed of developments; represented the firm at conferences and meetings; and provided first-line contacts with legislative staff and regulatory agency personnel.
