David J. Kupstas, FSA, EA, MSEA
Chief Actuary of the ACG Retirement Plan Design and Administration Division
“The best thing about the job is the variety. While I get to use my mathematical background quite a bit, I also spend a lot of time communicating results and ideas, researching law and regulations, creating optimal plan designs and solutions, and managing workflow and deadlines. There are no “typical days”. The job has never gotten boring even after 25 years.”
