• Public employee pensions are not excessive – they average $2,200 per month for retired career public servants.

  • Pensions don’t bankrupt governments – less than 3% of the State Budget is needed to pay pension benefits.

  • 79% of pensions are funded by employee contributions and investment returns, not the taxpayer.

  • Salaries for public employees are less than their private sector counterparts, underlining the importance of a secure pension plan.
