One of Governor Christie’s first initiatives was to call for transparency, especially in regard to pensions, which led to the creation of the YourMoney website.
Nothing much got done on the pension front but we do now have a listing of participants in the state pension, both retired and still working, updated through September, 2016 which yields this data:
Still working: 391,283 with total annual salaries of $24,298,374,674 sorted by salary
Retired: 327,554 with total annual pensions of $10,415,018,061 sorted by name
Retirees in the last year: 14,945 with total annual pensions of $537,620,712
