The state pension fund is conservatively managed and fully funded. We live in Colorado, with a stable and growing economy, so I think the pension is a very secure asset.

Each year, up to 6 years buys a 3-4 percent increase in pension payout. Pension is a percent of highest average salary, so for each year purchased, her payout increases by 3-4%.
