Memo for fiscal year 2019, updated 2018-03-30

[Archived] Question #37: Provide the schedule or table that show the future anticipated pension fund ARC.


Can you provide the schedule or table that shows the future anticipated ARC schedule? 


A budget memo that would display future anticipated Actuarially Recommended Contribution Rates for the City’s Pension plans (ARCs) has been requested.  This memo provides the expected contribution to the plan, as well as the corresponding contribution rate based on the covered payroll.  Tables 1 and 2 are prepared by the City’s Actuaries (Cheiron).  Table 3 summarizes all of the projected contributions.  It should be noted that both the OPEB and the Line of Duty Act Plans are too new to have long-term projected contributions.  The source for these projections are the June 30, 2016 annual valuation reports. 

It is important to note that these projected contribution rates are based on experience and a set of assumptions related to the City’s demographics, morbidity, return on investments and the continuation of the City making the required contribution.  If any of these factors were to change significantly, the projected contribution rates would also change.
