Historical Member Population

A historical perspective of how the member population has changed over the past 20 years can be seen in the chart below:


Assets and Liabilities

The chart below compares the Valuation Value of Assets to the Actuarial Accrued Liabilities (AAL). To the extent the AAL is covered by assets, the fund can generate earnings to support the benefits that have been granted. When liabilities exceed assets, there exists an Unfunded Actuarial Accrued Liability (UAAL). The UAAL represents the value of benefits that have been granted but not funded.



The following table shows the progress of the fund over the last 20 years. Dollar amounts are in millions ($1,000 million equals $1 billion). Actual earnings are net of administration and investment expenses.
