Public Sector Retirement
The National League of Cities (NLC) recently announced its Public Sector Retirement Initiative sponsored by ICMA-RC, a resource for elected officials to help navigate the complexities of retirement and healthcare planning and funding for the municipal workforce. The initiative will serve as a research and information clearinghouse and education resource for all city leaders, no matter their level of sophistication. During the first year of the initiative, NLC will explore the role of elected officials, the city-state relationship and reform options.
The Public Sector Retirement Initiative helps city leaders stay current and prepared by:
- Developing research on trends and changes within public sector retirement
- Sharing best practices for pension and healthcare that provide a secure retirement while maintaining fiscal discipline
- Empowering city leaders to embrace their fiduciary responsibility over retirement benefits
