Ron Gebhardtsbauer, clinical associate professor of actuarial science at the Penn State Smeal College of Business, is one of five new appointees to the 2013 Advisory Council on Employee Welfare and Pension Benefit Plans—known as the ERISA Advisory Council.

The ERISA Advisory Council, the board of the Department of Labor that advises the Secretary of Labor on employee benefits issues, includes representatives of employers, the general public, and the fields of insurance, corporate trust, actuarial counseling, investment counseling, investment management, and accounting.

“The ERISA Advisory Council is integral to the department’s work in enhancing and preserving the health and retirement benefits of America’s workers,” said Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis in an announcement. “The exceptional professionals joining the 2013 council are uniquely qualified to help it accomplish its goals. Their expertise will be a valuable complement to the department’s mission to protect workers’ benefits.”

Gebhardtsbauer has been a member of the Smeal faculty since 2007. Previously, he was the chief actuary of the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, the head of Mercer’s New York City Retirement Practice, and the spokesperson for the actuarial profession in the U.S. He holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Penn State and a master’s degree in actuarial science from Northeastern University.
