Joint Committee on Public Retirement &
Social Security Programs
The Joint Committee on Public Retirement and Social Security Programs is planning to hold town hall meetings across the state from September to November. The committee reviews the actuarial solvency, adequacy of benefits, and all other aspects of the publicly supported retirement systems of the state. The committee also studies and reviews all proposals for changes or amendments to any of the existing public retirement laws or for the creation of new or expanded public retirement systems.
The AAC highly encourages current, as well as retired, county officials and employees to attend these meetings to stay abreast of the issues the committee discusses and to offer input from your personal perspective. This is the APERS Powerpoint being shared at the meetings.
