Defined benefit (DB) plan resources
CORPORATE PENSION FINANCE HANDBOOK
Pension plans and the corporations that sponsor them have been stretched as never before. Some of the largest plan sponsors–GE, Lockheed Martin, GM, Ford, and Verizon Communications–have transferred pension risk out of their plans. Ultimately, the penalty for getting a plan's investment strategy wrong can be terminal, proven by recent bankruptcy filings citing a pension fund as a main cause. While the challenge is great, practical solutions do exist.
FROZEN PLAN MANAGEMENT
Thousands of U.S. corporations have already frozen pension benefit accruals as an early step on the path towards eventual plan termination. Many others are considering such a step. Our Frozen Plan Handbook, which is designed as a simple, illustrative guide for those who have already frozen–or are considering freezing–their pension plans may help in your decision-making.
