Don't Stress Out About Pension Stress Testing

As more and more states adopt legislation mandating stress testing for public pension systems, you may be left wondering: What is a stress test and should my state be conducting one? Join experts from The Pew Charitable Trusts as they explain the basics of stress testing, including how it can be used to evaluate the potential impact of the next economic downturn on your state's public retirement systems and budget. Plus, hear from legislators and staff about how their states have used stress testing to influence policy reform.
