TIAA-CREF Samuelson Award - 2002 Certificate of Excellence Recipient Winner

A certificate of excellence was awarded to Kent Smetters for his article: "Controlling the Cost of Minimum Benefit Guarantees in Public Pension Conversions", which appeared in the Journal of Pension Economics and Finance in March 2002.
