Despite investment losses of 2.8%-- the worst asset performance since 2008—the private single-employer defined benefit plans of the Milliman 100 companies continued to make funding improvements in 2018. The funded ratio for the Milliman 100 companies settled at 87.1%, an improvement from the year-end 2017 funded ratio of 85.8%. The funding deficit improved by $41 billion, ending the year at $215 billion. Sixteen plans had a funded ratio of at least 100% compared to 15 plans from the 2018 Milliman Pension Funding Study.
