Despite setback, plans are healthier than at beginning of 2006
Mellon Financial Corporation
6 Jul 2006 United States Investment - Performance, Countries - US
US pension plans slightly lost ground in June as their liabilities increased, but they continue to be in better financial shape than they were at the beginning of 2006, according to Mellon Financial Corporation. While liabilities of the typical plan increased 1% in June 2006 due to lower interest rates, assets of a moderate-risk benchmark portfolio increased 0.2%, or a slower pace than the rise in liabilities. This combination resulted in 0.8% deterioration in a typical plan's funded status.
