If the funds used assumed rates of return in line with the private sector and as suggested by investment consultants, the actual liability exceeds $50 billion.The state’s two pension systems — the Public School Employee Retirement Commission, or PSERS, and the State Employees Retirement System, or SERS — are funded by state taxpayers, employees in the system and investment returns.
