Pension-related balance sheet and income statements have become increasingly volatile, while regulatory requirements have expanded and become more complex, heightening the risks of incurring large costs. To address these problems, pension sponsors have been reducing risk and/or transferring it to another party. Presenters will discuss ways to diagnose and inventory pension risk factors, determine which risk factors to address, decide which approaches to use in mitigating risk (benefits, investments, contributions, insurance), and examine the overall impact on the pension system and its members.

The U.S. Supreme Court’s announcement that it will hear a South Dakota case this spring involving the collection of sales taxes from online retail sales is expected to break the current gridlock on an issue that has divided members of Congress. This session will describe both the progress of the legislation to date and the potential outcome of South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. Listen to panelists discuss the potential outcomes of both for local governments.
