Our Model Pension Plan Funded Status Plummeted in Q1 2020

During the first quarter of 2020 (Q1), the funded status of the model pension plan examined in each issue of Prism fell by 9 percentage points, to 76 percent.

This drop is primarily attributable to a 12 percent asset loss, heavily influenced by the recent COVID-19 outbreak.
