The Business

Join one of the fastest growing areas of our retirement business! The Retirement Service Center (also called Actuarial Service Center – ASC) is a growing group of colleagues within the North American Retirement Line of Business who focus on operational excellence and systems expertise. As integrated members of client teams in a variety of offices, they provide high quality and efficient work for Defined Benefit, Defined Contribution and post retirement plans served by the Retirement teams. Work performed by ASC colleagues includes annual actuarial funding and accounting valuations, corporate reporting and disclosure government forms and a wide range of special projects.

Explore an opportunity. As an intern within the ASC, you will contribute to a range of retirement valuation and special projects. You will have the opportunity to learn about various aspects of retirement plans and the typical actuarial work we do. You will employ the most cutting edge tools and resources to complete required projects involving valuation data, government filing and pension benefit calculations. In addition, you will participate in our systematic training program for interns and entry level full-time analysts. Actuarial credentials are not required for colleagues in the ASC, and as a result, ASC colleagues are not eligible for the exam program.

• Participate and actively engage in training sessions
• Perform actuarial valuations and prepare valuation reports
• Perform data analysis and reconciliations of pension plan participant data
• Perform pension benefit calculations using established spreadsheets or our proprietary plan administration system
• Prepare government reporting forms and annual employee benefit statements
• Support special projects as ad-hoc needs arise
• Work with other colleagues to ensure that each project is completed on time and meets quality standards
• Respond to all requests and communications effectively and efficiently
