Penn. Municipal Pension Funds Get One-Time Windfall

September 26, 2011

Pennsylvania’s municipal pension funds are in line for a one-time windfall thanks to a change in how out-of-state insurers submit taxes on their casualty and fire insurance premiums.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Friday that the money comes from changing the tax payment schedule from quarterly to yearly.

The paper says Pittsburgh’s state aid will grow from $16 million to $26 million, and Monroeville expects a $400,000 increase.

The Public Employee Retirement Commission says the money will be divided among municipalities with underfunded pensions, based on need and the number of workers.
