NORMAN — Professor of Law at The University of Oklahoma, Jonathan B. Forman, received The Actuarial Foundation’s 2015 John Hanson Memorial Prize for his recent research. The award recognizes Forman’s work as co-author on the paper “Tontine Pensions.” Forman received the award last month at the Annual Meeting of the Conference of Consulting Actuaries in Bonita Springs, Florida.
The John Hanson Memorial Prize is given annually to the author(s) of the best paper on an employee benefits topic. Submissions are considered and judged based on appropriateness of subject material, timelieness of topic, originality and practical application to employee benefits.
“Professor Forman is a wonderful example of OU Law’s strong commitment to faculty research,” said OU Law Dean Joseph Harroz Jr. “His scholarship is impressively expansive and we’re grateful to The Actuarial Foundation for recognizing his work. We are proud of Professor Forman’s leadership in the field.”
Forman’s article is co-authored by Michael J. Sabin and is published in the February 2015 issue of the University of Pennsylvania Law Review. The article shows how to create low-cost “tontine pensions” through which large employers could provide retirement income for their employees.
