Endowment Distribution

The spending rate on UM endowments is currently being transitioned from 5.0% to 4.5% over a period not to exceed the seven years ended June 30, 2019. The calculation of the amount to be distributed will be based on the trailing 28-quarter average of the endowment’s total market value. In no case shall the transition from 5.0% to 4.5% cause the actual spending distribution to decrease from one year to the next during the transition phase. With questions, please call 1 800-970-9977.
