This reminds me to buy my lotto ticket tonight for the $62.8 million dollar jackpot. It seems that states are playing a "lotto" with their pension plans....will the employee and his/her benefactors live long enough for the money that has been "vested" to double in value, an amount hopefully large enough to cover the debts (or is it bets?)? My husband is a state employee and the company attitude of the state pension plans is that the state "takes care of their own." NOT IF THEY DON"T HAVE THE MONEY!!!! This is one of our biggest "spousal" arguments...he wants to depend on the state pension plan for about 85% of our retirement income. Talk about having all of your eggs in one basket! I, on the other hand, would rather diversify, and have several "sources" of retirement income...and fingers-crossed with lucky rabbit foot, hopefully one of them will be my lottery winnings investment account. :)

At some point the govenments are going to realize they can't continue to fund the pension plan and government employees will have to begin funding their own retirement account like everyone else. Same goes for social security; too many people thinking the government will provide for their retirement. If I were a government employee I would definitely be funding my own retirement and not depending on the government to fund it.
