Pensions

May 8, 2013
dsp Williamsport Sun-Gazette

The Sun-Gazette's recent editorial on public workers' pensions correctly points out that a recently reported $140 million surplus in state reimbursements for Pennsylvania's school district pension costs should be used to "ensure that benefits earned by all those in the system are maintained which is morally correct." I agree that the Commonwealth should honor its promise to the teachers, nurses, social workers, and law enforcement officials who never stopped paying into their retirement system. Many of us contribute 7.5 percent of our salaries for our pensions; some now pay 10.3 percent.
