Public funds are becoming more confident of their readiness to address retirement trends and issues over the next two years, according to new research.

This is a key finding of the 2013 NCPERS Public Retirement System Study. Conducted by the National Conference on Public Employee Retirement Systems (NCPERS) and Cobalt Community Research, the study polled 241 state, local and provincial government pension funds with a total number of active and retired memberships surpassing 12.4 million and assets exceeding $1.4 trillion. The majority (82 percent) were local pensions, while 18 percent were state pension funds.
