Mayor Curry discussing his pension solution with City Employees during a town hall meeting at City Hall - St. James Building As a result of diligent and thoughtful work, extensive community dialogue, and tough negotiations with union leadership, Jacksonville achieved a solution that designates a dedicated revenue stream to properly fund our pension obligations to current and past employees, offers attractive and sustainable retirement benefits to new hires, and provides budget relief for essential services including public safety, economic development and neighborhoods.

The voters, City Council, and employee unions approved Mayor Lenny Curry's solution to solve one of the biggest issues in Jacksonville’s history, affording the city the opportunity to solve our $2.7 billion pension crisis. The voters recognized that annual pension costs, approaching $300 million a year, are unsustainable.

As owners of 25 percent of the total unfunded pension liability of the more than 400 cities and counties throughout the state, the City of Jacksonville was paying an additional $160 million a year above its normal pension contribution for its three public pension funds. The City contribution to the three pension funds was nearly 20 percent of the City’s operating budget. The Police & Fire Pension Fund is currently at a 46 percent funded level with an unfunded liability of over $1.6 billion; The General Employee Pension Fund is at a 60 percent funded level with an unfunded liability of approximately $910 million; and the Corrections Officers’ Pension Fund is at a 48 percent funded level with an unfunded liability of over $120 million. The total of the unfunded liabilities of the three public pension funds is more than $2.7 billion. The mayor's plan provides an immediate solution to avoid being plunged into a financial crisis.
