minimum funding requirement


minimum funding requirement
= MFR
In the UK, the legal requirement that the assets of an occupational pension should represent at least 90% of its liabilities at any time. Since the liabilities and assets of a fund relate to future obligations and returns, both depend on certain actuarial assumptions about the future and thus may fluctuate from year to year. The MFR was introduced as a provision of the Pensions Act (1995) and came into force in 1997.
