The multi-stage models link asset allocation decisions with payments to beneficiaries, changes to plan policies and related issues, to maximize the plan's surplus within a given risk tolerance. Temporal aspects complicate the problem but give rise to special opportunities for dynamic investment strategies.

We develop a specialized algorithm for solving the resulting problem. A real-world pension example illustrates the concepts.
