What is the Pension IndicatorTM?
The Pension Indicator™ tool has been updated based on market conditions through November 30, 2015. This tool was developed to allow employers to mitigate their risk exposure by monitoring the estimated changes to their pension plan's funded status as it is reported for financial statement purposes under U.S. GAAP. The three tables on the home page provide the percentage change in the funded level of the plan: year-to-date, month-over-month, and 12-month change as of November 30, 2015 based on the investment mix and plan type.
The Pension IndicatorTM is updated on a monthly basis to reflect changing marketing conditions, so return regularly for the most recent values and updated commentary.
