    At a joint Colorado Senate and House Finance Committees meeting held in LSB-A on 01/20/2011 a briefing by the Public Employees’ Retirement Association informed the committees that rough preliminary figures indicate 2010 earning in excess of 8%. A more definitive figure will be available, in late Winter or early Spring, when additional information (specifically real estate related earnings) is accessible.

    In discussing the pending lawsuit Mr. Smith (attorney for PERA) and members of the committees note this is unprecedented and ground breaking, in reference to SB-1.

    I have to wonder under what authority PERA was established and under what authority the State was exempted from paying social security. If PERA had not been established, the State would have no recourse to paying their share to social security. This has not been the case with the States responsibilities to the employees and the retirees of State government.

      Most of your question can be answered by referring to PERA’s document on PERA Affiliation, at http://www.copera.org/pdf/5/5-22.pdf.
      As to your last sentence, PERA is very careful to require PERA employers to remit all required employee and employer contributions to it

        that are mandated by Colorado law.

      This does not mean that the law requires these amounts to be equal to the amounts that are

        actuarially necessary to fund the retirement benefits

      that PERA and the law awards to PERA members.

      .

        Didn’t the state change the law so that they could lower their contributions for several years?!?!
