Future CalPERS Rate Increases Being Studied to Manage Fund Risk and Volatility

Don’t Miss This CalPERS Webinar Next Week to Learn More

May 29, 2015
City officials who have just stretched to accommodate the current round of CalPERS rate increases into their FY 2015-16 budgets are STRONGLY urged to tune in next week for a CalPERS webinar explaining the options the CalPERS Board of Administration is studying to reduce risk and volatility in the fund.
 
Both strategies are intended to ensure the long-term sustainability of the fund and will have impacts to member and employer contributions in the future. It is important to note that taking no action may pose an even higher risk of rate increases in the future.
 
The pension fund will be holding two webinars next week to brief you on these strategies that will feature speakers and an opportunity to ask questions that you may have about the implementation and impacts. Both webinars will include the same presentations and information, so you should choose one to attend.
