In 2012, Congress changed the rules for pension funding such that firms were allowed to contribute less to their company-sponsored pension plans. The original intention was to allow free up funds for these firms to invest domestically in infrastructure and job growth. In this webinar, we will discuss how the rule change came about, what firms did with the extra cash, and what this means for the stability of your pension plan.
