Unfunded pension liability is a major problem for government systems, meaning courts are extra hostile towards any pension claims. G&A knows how to navigate this judicial hostility and get the retirement benefits that you are entitled to.
Pension Funds are Low
According to an article published in the Sacramento Bee, public pension funds in California are currently underfunded. Specifically, the article stated that CalPERS, or the California Public Employees’ Retirement System, was 70 percent funded at the time of publication.
CalSTRS, or the California State Teachers’ Retirement System, was funded at a level of 64 percent. These are just two examples of problems that can arise for pensioners and why people may need the help of professionals who understand pension law in Sacramento.
Given the hostility exhibited by courts that’s mentioned above and the fact that some pension funds simply lack capital, these situations can be extremely stressful and complicated for those who need help. Pension law in Sacramento and across the state of California is only going to grow in importance as more people seek benefits from pension funds that are not funded at a level of 100 percent.
