Illinois Will Delay Pension Payment Because of Cash Shortage

Illinois Will Delay Pension Payment Because of Cash Shortage

Wednesday, 14 October 2015 03:43 PM

Illinois will delay pension payments as a prolonged budget impasse causes a cash shortage, Comptroller Leslie Geissler Munger said.

The spending standoff between Republican Governor Bruce Rauner and Democratic legislative leaders has extended into its fourth month with no signs of ending. Munger said her office will postpone a $560 million retirement-fund payment next month, and may make the December contribution late.

“This decision is choosing the least of a number of bad options,” Munger told reporters in Chicago on Wednesday. “For all intents and purposes, we are out of money now.”

Munger said the pension systems will be paid in full by the end of the fiscal year in June. The state still is making bond payments, she said.

“We prioritize the bond payments above everything else,” Munger told reporters.
