California’s statewide ‘$100,000 Pension Club’ membership stands at 62,474

Transparent California has announced that it has now received the most current pension payout data from almost all of California’s state, county and city pension funds.

According to this data there were at least 62,474 retired public employees who collected pensions Air track gymnastics of $100,000 or more in 2016. This number will most likely increase when the few very small remaining pension funds report their 2016 data, but Transparent California doesn’t expect the number to change significantly.
