The Mackinac Center for Public Policy recently published "MPSERS and MSERS: Three Pension Policy Briefs," which compiles three studies published by the Center in the past: "Michigan’s Public-Employee Retirement Benefits: Benchmarking and Managing Benefits and Costs" (Dreyfuss, 2010); "Estimated Savings From Michigan's 1997 State Employees Pension Plan Reform" (Dreyfuss, 2011); "Five Options for Addressing 'Transition Costs' When Closing the MPSERS Pension Plan" (Hohman, 2012).

Amassing findings from the last half-decade, these studies aim to round out and inform the discussion regarding pension reform occurring this year in the Michigan Legislature.
