NASP Board of Directors Adopts Retirement Security Statement Affirming Support of Defined Benefit Plans
On June 22, 2014, the NASP Board of Directors voted to adopt a statement affirming the associations’’ commitment to defined benefit plans to ensure retirement security of public employees.
On the adoption of the statement, Les Bond, board chair, NASP, said “Public sector employees have been the nation’s civil servants – playing important roles in society as educators, firefighters, police-officers – with the promise of retirement security. It is imperative that we honor the social contract that enabled municipal employers to attract and retain talented individuals to careers in public service.”
Orim Graves, executive director of NASP added “We are committed to working with the SEIU and ensuring that NASP members and public pension plans continue to work together in ensuring retirement security for thousands of public sector employees. NASP believes that in addition to the important role of defined benefit plans, defined contribution programs and personal savings plans are effective ways for future retirees to augment their retirement income as well.”
