LAGERS Economic Impact 2019  - The Numbers Are In!

LAGERS' most recent economic impact numbers are coming in, and it looks to be another successful year of providing stable economic foundations for our members, retirees and the communities in which they live. Here are just a few quick stats:

We're proud to provide retirement, disability and survivor benefits to our members, and we're also proud that those benefits in turn create a ripple effect throughout economies across Missouri. Our retirees spend their modest pension incomes on goods and services in which they live. That creates a positive impact for all of us.

Be sure to watch for the full 2019 Economic Impact Report, which will be released in the coming weeks, and until then, register for our Economic Impact Webinar on October 17.

Our Legislative and Communications Coordinator Elizabeth Althoff will go through the report, and it's most notable findings and what that means for our Missouri communities. Join us on October 17!
