Among other things, Chris has performed standard actuarial valuations; developed customized benefit statements and benefit projection programs; prepared annual Form 5500, Schedule B, and PBGC filings; collaborated on the development of interactive valuation presentation and projection models; written and utilized an extensive experience study program; reviewed plan amendments; and provided consulting in regard to plan design, compliance, and costs.
Over the last nine years, Chris has consulted extensively to both labor and management multiemployer pension fund trustees on a day-to-day basis. In addition to conventional actuarial services, his experience with multiemployer plans includes the use of interactive computer modeling to help trustees analyze in real-time the likely long-term impact of various contribution and plan changes for collective bargaining purposes.

Chris has also developed interactive benefit calculation models allowing employers and employees to maximize their understanding of their pension benefits.
