I. Governor Issues Pension Savings by Municipality
Today the Governor’s Office issued a press release touting that the recent pensions and health benefits reform law will result in $43 million in pension cost savings across local governments for Fiscal Year 2012.
According to the press release, these reforms mean “critical savings for state and local governments and real property tax relief for New Jerseyans”.
A breakdown of Fiscal Year 2012 pension cost savings for each local government in New Jersey can be accessed at www.state.nj.us/treasury/pensions/epbam/exhibits/pdf/2012-pers-comparison-revised-78.pdf. The breakdown shows a comparison of required contributions for State Fiscal Year 2012 Pre and Post pensions and health benefits reforms. Please note that the breakdown is only for the PERS.
We have reached out to the Division of Pensions and Benefits requesting similar information for PFRS.
