Annual Actuarial Report

CFRS consulting actuary performs an in-depth valuation of each of the Retirement Systems every year to assess the sufficiency of assets to fund the benefits promised to members and eligible beneficiaries. In accordance with CFRS Actuarial Funding Policy, the actuarial valuation contains recommended employer and employee contribution rates to fund the annual “normal cost” of the System.


Actuarial Valuations
