United Actuarial Service’s research department provides research services to UAS consultants and benefit administrators. We also offer them on a subscription basis to attorneys, salaried administrators, other third party administration companies and other employee benefit plan advisors. Our research department is headed by an attorney who analyzes new laws and regulations and judicial developments that affect employee benefit plans.
