(INDIANAPOLIS) - Indiana's pension fund for state employees says it's within two-tenths of a percent of being fully funded. That's a three-point improvement over a year ago.
The Public Employees Retirement Fund has added $2.5-billion dollars in assets, thanks to an 17.8-percent investment return last fiscal year. That brings its total portfolio to 17.2-billion.
PERF administrators say the investment return is two-tenths-of-a-point better than their benchmark, while the underfunded liability is far better than an average of 12-percent for state pension funds.
