PEPRA was enacted with a stated goal: to create a more sustainable pension system by reducing employer pension liability and increasing employee contributions toward their pension benefits. PEPRA only accomplishes this goal in the distant future – since the majority of the changes apply only to employees who become retirement system members on or after January 1, 2013. For those public employers still struggling with significant unfunded liabilities for current members, AB 340 does little to address the more immediate needs for a reduction in pension liability, and in some areas actually increases liabilities for most agencies modestly. And most of the Act’s provisions that do provide an opportunity to reduce an employer’s share of an unfunded liability can be realized only by agreement with employee organizations. Because current costs are so heavily driven by unfunded liabilities and the Act does little to help with current employees, the future savings due to the legislation will do little to drive down normal cost or unfunded liability in the next decade.
