Q: Where can I find information about proposed pension legislation?
A: The State Employees’ Retirement System works with the Public Employee Retirement Commission to maintain a searchable database specific to retirement-related legislation. You can find proposals related to Pennsylvania school, state, or municipal retirement systems; you can sort by common retirement-related topics; and you can access actuarial and cost notes, if applicable.
You can also visit the General Assembly's website to search the content and status of all legislation introduced in Pennsylvania.
