Measure Details

Public Employee Pension Plans

South Carolina Ballot Measure - Constitutional Amendment 2a

Summary

"Post-employment benefits" are benefits, mainly health insurance, provided to eligible state government and school district retirees.

To comply with a change in accounting standards, the state has created trust funds to pay for these post-employment benefits. This amendment relates to how the money in these trust funds may be invested.

A "yes" vote would give the state government the option to invest these funds in equity securities (stocks).

A "no" vote would mean that state government is not allowed to invest these funds in any kind of equity securities (stocks).
