Abstract

Considerable quantitative research is being undertaken in the pension area, particularly now that high speed computers are available. This being the case, it is important that studies be coordinated so that duplication of effort is reduced to the extent possible. By the same token, familiarity with the pension literature is mandatory to minimize redundancy. The purpose of this article is to aid researchers in these regards, by providing an overview of contributions to the evolution of pension cost analysis. "... it was a very curious thing that the important question of the valuation of Widows' Funds had on no occasion been treated by contributions to the proceedings of the Institute. [Additionally,] the Index to the Journal contained no entry relating to superannuation schemes, which was again a matter of great public importance." G. H. Ryan, JIA, Vol. XXXI (1893-5), p. 470.
