Pension Assistance List (PAL)
Helping workers and retirees who have pension questions
The Pension Assistance List (PAL) is an American Academy of Actuaries program that serves the public. It is intended to provide professional services to consumers who have questions about their pension plans.
When a request is received, the PAL coordinator selects an actuary from the PAL volunteer list who has appropriate expertise. The PAL actuary contacts the consumer and offers up to four hours of free help.
Soon after the initial contact, the PAL actuary and the consumer each receive a form from the Academy that solicits feedback.
PAL is not intended to provide legal support or expert witness service in connection with pending or contemplated litigation.
Questions? Contact Gwen Pegram at 202-223-8196, the PAL coordinator.
