The Defined Benefit System incorporates an administrative tracking system with an actuarial valuation system.

It allows the User to update plan parameters, benefit formulas, assets and rates for valuation runs, with ease.

Census data is input through the Census System which is part of the basic Defined Benefit System package, along with the Administrative Functions and Name & Address Systems.

On combination Defined Benefit and Defined Contribution Plans*, the census need only be entered once, in the Census system.

For maximum productivity and minimum down time, the Defined Benefit System is designed to allow the User to print and work simultaneously. All reports can be viewed on the screen before printing.

* Defined Contribution System sold separately.
