What is in the Census Data file?
The census data is in an Excel file available on the City Portal. Personal data is collected from the member at the time of enrollment and during various points in the individual’s membership. This data is used not only to set up an account and determine to whom benefits can be paid, but is also the personal data required by the actuary to perform the annual actuarial valuation. The actuary performs a life-by-life validation of each member as part of the valuation process.
