Pension funding gap
The state will likely have to add $189 million to its teacher and employee pension funds by next year. Officials with the State Retirement Agency explained results from fiscal 2009 to the legislature. The $17.5 billion needed to close the gap is in addition to the approximately $28.6 billion that the pension office already has set aside.
Levy said the state would need to put aside an additional $541 million to the established $189 million it will contribute next year (but expressed doubt that this would happen). This would bring the state’s pension contributions close to $2 billion in fiscal 2010.
“I don’t think we’re even going to do the $189 million,” Levy said.
