The Pepperdine School of Public Policy will host "The Future of American Retirement" event and discussion on the state of public pension systems in the US at the Pepperdine University DC, Campus.

Participants include, former Connecticut State Treasurer Christopher Burnham and other policy experts engaging in a discussion about the future of retirement plans in the US.

With more than $6 trillion dollars in unfunded liabilities, the American public pension and retirement system is in need of dramatic changes to be able to serve future generations. Movement has taken place from California to New York with attempts to push public pension funds to divest from certain sectors. This move could arguably politicize pension funds and violate a pension fund's fiduciary duty to generate optimal returns for retirees. This panel will address these issues and others on the state of public pensions today.
