The Retrospective Return Plan is a controlled method of returning to its members excess funds accumulated due to favorable operating experience. The actuarial formula was devised by Towers Watson to provide for the accumulation of adequate amounts of retained funds before returns may be made to Fund members. The experience-driven formula allows the balance in the retro reserve to be used to offset potential future adverse experience or to make returns to members. This feature helps insulate members from adverse experiences and rewards members when experience is favorable. The Fund has returned $222 million in retro renewal credits since 1978.
