About the Survey
The International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans (International Foundation) and Horizon Actuarial Services, LLC (Horizon Actuarial), have partnered to build a database of historical information for multiemployer benefit plans in the United States. A database of multiemployer defined benefit (DB) plans was originally developed during the summer of 2013 using publicly available information from Form 5500 filings. The database of multiemployer defined contribution (DC) plans followed in the summer of 2014 as a supplement to the original DB plan database. A separate report incorporating the results from these databases is available through the International Foundation website. The database of health plans, the subject of this report, was developed in the summer of 2016.
