Hard Numbers Elusive on Cost of PA Pension Switch



A state commission that keeps tabs on public pensions in Pennsylvania was unable Tuesday to provide much clarity on the financial implications of switching the two major systems to a new 401(k)-style plan.
 
The Public Employee Retirement Commission decided yesterday to compile often-conflicting analyses by its own actuary and outside actuaries of a pair of House bills that were approved earlier in the day by the State Government Committee. The commission's director, James McAneny, says the bills surfaced too late to allow a detailed analysis, so commission members opted to share the information they already had.
 
Republican Governor Tom Corbett's administration projects long-term savings from the switch, but unions say phasing in the new system while closing the current traditional plan could actually increase costs.
