LARAMIE, Wyo. — The Wyoming Retirement System is doing better than expected thanks to increases in the state's contributions to the fund and investment returns that came in above projections.
Executive Director Ruth Ryerson says the long term outlook for the retirement fund is excellent.
Ryerson says of the seven pension plans that are part of the Wyoming Retirement System, the judicial plan is in the best shape at 100 percent funding right now.
But the plan for salaried firefighters will run out of money in 15 years. It's a plan for people already in retirement.
The state Legislature plans to look into funding sources for it next year.
