The Center for Retirement Research at Boston College has undertaken a comprehensive initiative on state and local government retirement plans. Under this initiative, the Center produces new Issues in Brief, fact sheets, and data that describe and analyze key trends in the state-local pension universe, including plan structure and funding status. Stay informed by joining the state and local mailing list.
The Center gratefully acknowledges the MissionSquare Research Institute for its support of much of this research and data collection.
