Historic Pension Reform: Fair to Taxpayers, Retirees and Workers
Pennsylvania’s public pension system continues to place an increasing burden on taxpayers, state government and our school districts, taking funds away from real needs to pay for stock market losses from 2000-2010 and the poor decisions of past leaders. Something had to be done, and I have worked since my first day in office to make it happen.

I offered legislation every session since my first term in Harrisburg: House Bills 2453 and 2454 in 2011-12, House Bills 1352 and 1353 in 2013-14, and House Bill 727 in 2015-16. Each of these shifted new hires to a 401(k)-type plan while keeping the promise made to current retirees and employees in the system.

After years of debate, and now some compromise and consensus, the Legislature passed a landmark, bipartisan public pension reform plan, signed into law by Gov. Tom Wolf. This reform plan – which includes many parts of my legislation – will reduce the financial pressures on our school districts and taxpayers while keeping the promises made to current employees.

Highlights of the bipartisan pension reform plan include:
- The first-ever mandatory 401(k)-style (or defined contribution) plan for state workers and teachers.
- Shifting risk away from taxpayers and ensuring the Commonwealth can meet its future pension obligations.
- Reducing the unfunded liability by at least $5 billion. Depending on the systems’ investment returns, and thanks to new risk-sharing provisions, additional savings could be between $5 billion and $20 billion.

Over just the past seven years, taxpayer costs for the state’s two pension systems – the State Employees’ Retirement System (SERS) for state workers and the Public School Employees’ Retirement System (PSERS) for public school employees – have increased by 472 percent for PSERS and 542 percent for SERS! In real dollars, where seven years ago we paid $400 million for PSERS and $137 million for SERS, those costs for 2017-18 are $2.28 billion and $879 million, respectively.
