The General Assembly formed a task force to examine and recommend reforms in the Kentucky
Retirement Systems (KRS). School classified employees are covered by one of the systems that are part of KRS – the County Employee Retirement System (CERS). The task force has adopted recommendations.
KEA is part of a Public Pension Coalition that is working together to combat recommendations that
would be harmful to school employees and also assure better funding from the state for KRS, which has been significantly underfunded for more than a decade. The teachers’ retirement system (KTRS) is not part of the legislative discussions at this point.
Please contact your legislators today and ask them to protect Retirement Security for Kentucky’s School Employees.
In an effort to protect Kentucky School Employees Retirement Benefit, KEA joined with other employees groups to create the Kentucky Public Pension Coalition.
