As a supplement to the Connecticut School Finance Project’s January 2018 report, Factors Contributing to Health of State Employee Pension Funds, this policy briefing analyzes the health of Connecticut’s Municipal Employee Retirement System (MERS), examines the factors contributing to the system’s relatively healthy current funding level, and discusses the features of the system that differentiate it from other public pension systems, such as Connecticut’s State Employees Retirement System (SERS).
