U.S. Pension Finance Watch – December 2022

Pension index decreased in December

January 6, 2023

The WTW Pension Index declined in December 2022.

The WTW Pension Index declined in December 2022. This month’s change was a result of negative investment returns, partially offset by a decrease in liabilities due to an increase in discount rates. The end-of-December index level of 101.3 reflects a decrease of 2.0% for the month but an increase of 13.0% for the year.
