Illinois Pension Debts are Over $500 Billion Governor Candidates and Wirepoints Press Conference
Illinois just reached an alarming milestone: each Illinois household is now on the hook for, on average, $110,000 in government-worker retirement debts. That figure is the result of dividing Illinois’ $530 billion in state and local retirement shortfalls among the state’s 4.9 million households. In 2019, the burden was $90,000 per household.
Wirepoints hosted a virtual press conference with four of Illinois’ gubernatorial candidates to highlight the pension issue. Governor Pritzker was also invited.
