  1. As teacher salaries are raised why are we even discussing DB plans? Would anyone argue that teachers are the smartest people in the world? Why can’t or why shouldn’t they manage their own investments? Why are teachers held to the whims of politicians? If they like politicians holding their purse strings then don’t complain when you don’t like the results. I think teachers should be paid more. But manage your own retirement program.


  2. Excellent article. I’m an actuary too. I chose monthly pension payout when most of my colleagues took lump sums thinking they were brilliant investors. I saved a bit so had some other investments I could dabble with, but there’s a stable monthly income.
