As public sector employees face greater financial pressures and employers continue to make changes to primary pension plans, it is time to review the role and design of defined contribution plans in the public sector. This report focuses on several central questions about public sector retirement plans. The purpose of this report is not to suggest that defined contribution plans will or should replace traditional defined benefit plans. Instead, it seeks to focus in the increasing role of defined contribution plans in state and local government and for employee retirement security.

A joint research project of the Arthur N. Caple Foundation and the National Association of Government Defined Contribution Administrators conducted by the Center for  State and Local Government Excellence.
