Foster & Foster was founded in 1979 by Ward and Eileen Foster with a mission to provide actuarial consulting services to public pension funds. Mr. Foster’s impeccable integrity, quick wit, commitment to trustee education, and his insatiable desire to provide personal service for a modest fee propelled the firm to steadily grow and become the market leader for actuarial services in the State of Florida.

In 2005, Mr. Foster began phased retirement and turned over the reins to Brad Heinrichs, who has helped Foster & Foster triple its client base, quintuple the staff, and begin providing actuarial consulting services nationally. In 2008, Foster & Foster made a commitment to the Midwest by opening an office in Lincolnshire, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. In 2010, this commitment was furthered by Foster & Foster’s acquisition of R.N. Blomquist & Company, a firm that provides Taft-Hartley health and welfare consulting services. Foster & Foster’s dedication and commitment continues to resonate well in this market, as we now provide Taft-Hartley annual reports, Taft-Hartley pension valuations, or public plan pension valuations to over 600 plans in the Midwest.

With clients having as few as 5 or as many as 180,000 members, Foster & Foster is small enough to provide customized solutions and personal service to all clients yet is equipped with the resources capable of servicing the largest plans in the country. By developing innovative plan designs and continuing our commitment to trustee education, our firm has partnered with clients to find ways to make their contribution dollars go further and last longer.
