Teacher Pension Problems in California

Pension problems in California: “a new report says the fund needs an additional $4.5 billion every year — more than Sacramento spends on both university systems combined — to stay above water.”  This is why I prefer a defined contribution plan (like a 401k or 403b) over a defined benefit plan (pension system).  You know the money’s there waiting for you when you retire.
