Valuation report

Valuations are a snapshot in time that assess the financial stability of the BC’s Public Service Pension Plan.

Every three years, an independent actuary (professional with specialized training in financial modelling, the laws of probability and risk management) assesses the financial position of the plan, including the adequacy of employer and employee contribution rates.

Valuation reports examine the plan's assets and liabilities, as well as demographic, investment and economic factors that affect the plan. These reports help the board make decisions on contribution rates. The plan’s Joint Trust Agreement provides guidance on what the board may do with surplus funds determined by the valuation process.
