Projections at your fingertips for your multiemployer pension plan
As a plan trustee, decisions you make today affect the long-term health and stability of the pension plan. With many variables, a challenging investment climate, and extended time horizons, the future is often hazy.
Using Milliman’s Online Projection Tool and Information Center (OPTIC™), you can see the potential impact of critical decisions before you make them. OPTIC gives you a view of the long-term health of your pension plan through a modern, digital experience that’s easy to use and understand. By projecting assets and liabilities into the future through different scenarios, you gain insights into the plan’s funded status, zone status, withdrawal liability, and risk metrics.
Review projections developed by your Milliman consultant, or create your own, to better understand how the pension plan may be impacted.
Suggest or implement effective solutions based on up-to-date information.
Plan information is consolidated into one easy-to-access repository, including zone certifications, benefit improvement studies, funding projection reports, actuarial valuation reports, withdrawal liability reports, and more.
