SFA: Solvency Through 2051?

The multiemployer Special Financial Assistance (SFA) program, which was part of the American Rescue Plan Act passed by Congress in March 2021, is intended to enable eligible deeply troubled plans to pay all benefits and expenses due through 2051. Interim PBGC rules drew considerable criticism from a wide variety of stakeholders. Final regulations recently issued by PBGC respond to those concerns. Although the final rules primarily affect eligible plans that apply for SFA, there are also implications for some plans that may have not considered SFA.

Join Segal for our upcoming webinar “SFA: Solvency Through 2051?” on August 9, 121 pm ET.

In this webinar...

Our actuarial, compliance and investment advisory experts will explore considerations for plan sponsors resulting from the PBGC’s final rule, including:

  • Changes to calculating the amount of SFA: impact of a dual interest rate approach
  • Special consideration of plans that suspended benefits under the Multiemployer Pension Reform Act of 2014
  • Application timing: changes to and “locking in” of the measurement date; filing of a supplemental application
  • Restrictions imposed on plans that receive SFA: mergers, withdrawal liability, contribution rates, benefit improvements
  • Expansion of permissible investments; implications for asset mix and solvency
  • Review of the limitations for both the return seeking assets and remaining SFA assets
