This curriculum will demystify pensions. It will help you understand how the retirement system in your state works, how it is supposed to be financed, the advantages it offers, and the challenges it faces.
After completing the curriculum, you’ll be able to see the big picture around your retirement and understand the factors that threaten it, along with possible solutions. We don’t advocate for any single solution or suggest a move away from traditional pension systems. Rather, we encourage you to learn exactly how your benefits work, and to understand the range of ways the structure of those benefits can be improved.
