What: Much has been written on the financial condition of pension plans and plan reform in the public sector, but little has been documented about public sector workers’ retirement planning, saving and confidence. The recently released 2012 Retirement Confidence Survey of the State and Local Government Workforce fills this gap. Among the highlights: Only 19 percent of full-time public sector workers are very confident in their retirement income prospects, with many expressing concern about the impact of rising health care costs. And 57 percent expect to work longer than they would like. This webinar examines key findings from the survey, including data specific to K-12 teachers and public safety officers.

Who: Report authors Joshua M. Franzel, Ph.D., vice president of research of the Center for State and Local Government Excellence, and Paul J. Yakoboski, Ph.D., senior economist with the TIAA-CREF Institute.
