Option for Public Employees
By Allegra Machado

I urge all Alaskan Constituents and State Employees to write your Senator and Representative today and encourage them to stand up and actively support Senate Bill 121 and House Bill 236. This is the legislation that creates an option for TRS and PERS employees hired after 2006 to choose either a defined benefit or defined contributions retirement plan.

Alaska needs to be able to recruit and keep the best and brightest employees. A defined benefit pension system is cost effective and gives employees retirement certainty, this is an invaluable recruitment and retention tool.

Alaska's public employees deserve the best, most secure retirement because they give this state their best service.

We need your support!
