As someone born in the early 50s, yes I have a nice pension from 29 years with the State (not as a teacher). BUT, no one hired after 1986 has that package. And people hired after 2005 have no benefit plan, just a savings account that will vary with the market.

So, my personal knowledge is that civil service pensions in Alaska are not the same as they once were.

And I wonder if this is behind some of these arguments, comparing the benefits of people who worked in the '80s with people starting to work in the last ten years
