The Pacific Financial Technical Assistance Center (PFTAC), in coopera-tion with the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) Expenditure Policy Di-vision and the Bank of the Marshall Islands, will sponsor and facilitate a workshop on April 25-27, 2016 in Majuro to discuss the social security issues and pension challenges facing the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia and Republic of Palau, and explore optional solutions

Participants will include represen-tatives of Compact Country Social Security and Civil Service Pension Funds, as well as Finance Ministries of the three countries. MISSA has also invited its actuary and invest-ment consultants to share their own assessment of MISSA’s accrued li-abilities, the current world market conditions and future outlook of MISSA’s offshore investments.kajur

After the workshop (April 28), MIS-SA will sponsor an open forum with the business community, NGO’s, diplomatic corps, retirees and invit-ed representatives from the general public to discuss the current finan-cial challenges that the Administra-tion is facing and present a num-ber of restructuring options that will bring long-term sustainability to the Retirement Fund.

On April 29, the Administration will have a dialogue with the President, Cabinet and Nitijela members to re-iterate its appeal for legislations that will correct certain loopholes in the country’s social security system. It will also serve as a good venue for MISSA to introduce restructuring options aimed to ensure long-term plan adequacy.

In preparation for the workshop, MISSA has collaborated with the Secretary of Finance and representatives from the offices of the Cabinet, Nitijela, Chief Secretary, MIVA and the Public Service Commission.
