CalPERS Hosts Tailored Forum for Elected Officials

CalPERS has extended an invitation to local elected officials to attend a special meeting to discuss key issues and upcoming policy issues related to the long-term funding of CalPERS.

  • Unfunded Accrued Liability
  • Investment Returns
  • Rising Health Care Costs
  • Pre-Funding of Pensions and Post-Retirement Benefit Costs

The “Forum-within-the-Forum” will be held at the Oakland Marriott Events Center in Oakland, California on Monday, October 28, 2019 from 9:30am to 12:00pm.  The official invite letter can be accessed here.
