Abstract

A truism in Alaska regarding nearly everything, but especially politics and economics, is

that Alaska is about two years behind the rest of the nation. When one looks at pension reform

in the public sector, it would appear that Alaska is even farther behind its sister states in

attempting to ‘fix the pension problem.’ Prior to 2006, Alaska was recognized as having one of

the better public employee pension systems, a defined-benefit program that included a lifetime

monthly pension payment as well as an excellent medical program.
