This policy brief outlines a number of reasons why Louisiana's new cash balance pension system should not serve as a model for other states.

This policy brief finds that this cash balance system is not ideal because there is no way for participants in the new system to know in advance how much they will have upon retirement.Year: 2012•State: Louisiana•Type: Policy Brief or Report•Source: Economic Policy Institute
