Public pensions continue to be a topic of great concern to state policymakers across the country. Struggling from years of insufficient contributions, combined with longer-living retiree populations, many states face mounting public pension liabilities. Understanding how your state’s plan compares to others around the country and having access to reliable data about pension plans are both essential to making evidence-based policy decisions. SLGE partnered with the Council of State Governments to offer a free eCademy session to offer background on the state of public pension systems and introduce Public Plans Data, a free tool which can be used to inform debates about retirement security issues.
