Educator pensions

Every educator deserves a dignified retirement. It's time for meaningful pension improvements.
Minnesota’s educator pension system is unfair and one of the most inflexible in the nation. Pensions are not the educator recruitment and retention tool they were meant to be.

Our members’ top priority is reforming their pension plans. With some of the highest educator contribution levels to their own pensions compared to other states, direct state investment is needed to fix the inequities the state created.

Together, we can elect leaders who will:
• Reduce penalties and increases flexibility for educator retirement, so educators can choose when they’re ready to retire without losing a significant amount of their pension benefit.
• Support improving the retirement plans for higher education faculty, including better pensions and increasing the Supplemental Retirement Plan statutory maximum.
