This webinar provided a discussion of an area of emerging practice to inform actuaries and other interested parties about alternative expense methodologies. It reviewed different applications of yield curve rates in determining the elements of pension accounting cost, along with the theoretical rationales and implications of using them. This webinar was based on the issue brief Alternatives for Pension Cost Recognition – Issues and Implications, released by the Academy’s Pension Committee and Pension Accounting Committee in August 2015.
