An Introduction to Police and Fire Pensions

 In

This issue brief discusses police and fire retirement benefits as a portion of overall compensation and local government expenditures. Other key factors explored are the expected and appropriate retirement age of public safety staff and whether or not Social Security is part of the total benefits package. Such context can be helpful in considering the impact of potential changes to retirement benefits, their cost/benefit for the organization, and the role those benefits play in recruitment and retention.
