The Office of the State Actuary was established within the legislative branch in 1976. Its duties
are to perform actuarial services for the state’s retirement systems and any other studies
requested by the Legislature. The Agency also provides staff assistance to the Select Committee
on Pension Policy and provides actuarial services for the Law Enforcement Officers' and Fire
Fighters' Plan 2 Retirement Board.
The Select Committee on Pension Policy was created in 2003 to study issues and policies
affecting the state's public employee retirement systems. The Committee is charged with
studying benefits design, eligibility requirements and pension funding methods and making
recommendations to the Legislature. In addition, the Committee:
• Consults with the chair and vice-chair on appointing members to the State Actuary
Appointment committee, which appoints the State Actuary.
• Receives the results of actuarial audits administered by the Pension Funding Council.
• Reviews and makes recommendations to the Pension Funding Council regarding
changes to retirement assumptions or contribution rates.
The Agency has 12 employees and had a 2003-05 operating budget of more than $2.6 million.
