Status Report Black & White Version
(2011 Actuarial Valuations under Act 205 and 2010 Actuarial Valuations under Act 293) The Commission is hereby submitting its fourteenth biennial report on the status of the Commonwealth’s 3,200 local government pension plans for your review and information. These regularly issued status reports are an essential component of the oversight of local government pension plans exercised by the Governor and General Assembly. This oversight is warranted because Pennsylvania’s pension plans for local government employees, when viewed in the aggregate, represent one of the largest retirement systems in the nation.
