League and CalPERS Staff to Request One Month Delay on Changes to Risk Pools to Brief Cities and Request Feedback

In 2003 CalPERS implemented risk pooling to protect employers with less than 100 active members against large fluctuations in employer contribution rates caused by disabilities and other unexpected demographic events. The passage of the pension reform law (PEPRA) by the 2012 legislature effectively closed the existing nine risk pools to new members which now contain only employers with plans for “classic” (pre-PEPRA) employees. In November 2012, the CalPERS Board approved adding two new risk pools for the two formulas created by PEPRA, effective Jan. 1, 2013, but the question remained whether to maintain multiple (i.e., nine) closed pools for employers with classic employees or whether to collapse them down to a smaller number.
