The Miracle of Funding by State and Local Pension Plans
Date:4/16/2008

New Center for Excellence Issue Brief

WASHINGTON, April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The Center for State and Local Government Excellence has issued its fifth issue brief on retirement plans, The Miracle of Funding by State and Local Pension Plans. The brief, which was written by Alicia H. Munnell, Kelly Haverstick, Steven A. Sass, and Jean-Pierre Aubry of the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College, finds that:

-- State and local pension plans, overall, are as well funded as private

plans, with assets covering nearly 90 percent of liabilities.

-- This outcome is striking, even "miraculous," given that public plans:

-- tend to pay larger benefits;

-- use a more stringent funding yardstick; and

-- are not covered by any national legislation that mandate funding

standards.

-- Assets per worker increased markedly in the 1990s after states and

localities responded to new standards issued by the Government

Accounting Standards Board
