According to the Milliman 100 Pension Funding Index, the funded status of the 100 largest U.S. corporate defined benefit pension plans improved by $41 billion in January 2011, with the funding deficit declining to $250 billion from $291 billion at the end of December 2010. The improvement was due to an increase in corporate bond interest rates, as well as good performance in the financial markets in January. Pension liabilities fell by $35 billion in January, leading the Milliman 100 PFI value to drop to $1.401 trillion from $1.436 trillion at the end of December.
